Weather.

If the weather is fine, then let me roll;
But if the weather turns, then the wagons should crawl - even on a pike they should be slowed

In Campaign Overland, there are several campaigns; the Historical Campaign takes you through all the major battles: Wilderness, Spotsylvania, North Anna, and Cold Harbor; the "What if" Campaign (I forget the actual name) takes you on a similar path but has many more branches and some hypot...

Personally, I get the greatest amount of fun by playing scenarios completely blind -- essentially not knowing anything beyond the big strategic picture -- not knowing the makeup of the forces involved, strengths, directions of advance, nothing more than I get from the scenario description. Unfortuna...

Would you be interested in an Overland scenario?

Well, we tried our best. But honestly we couldn't think of everything or every strategy. We asked for some limited bridge building (pontoon units) or something similar but didn't get it. There was much discussion about the time it took to build entrenchments. Lots of historical research and I think ...

Any brave Rebs/Yankees care to play a Mule Shoe scenario or Po River or Harris Farm? All are Spotsylvania scenarios. Or "Strike them a blow" at North Anna? I'll play either side.

STILL LOOKING

Once the Yanks are in the trenches, I agree with Jim, it's still not over by a long shot. The Rebs can hold fast in the woods and have enough resources to build a strong defense. Hancock/Meade have to keep up the pressure and bring the artillery up as fast as possible. And someone has to wake up Bur...

I have to agree that the advantage of the column in assaulting entrenchments is speed and maneuver. The columns can converge on the point of attack and avoid some of the defensive fire. The melee can occur in the same turn. Changing into line formations, moving to the point of attack, and initiating...

Assault columns should be allowed in Overland as long as they are being used to assault entrenchments (trenches). The use of column formations in this way is historically accurate -- although the frontage of the assault columns were much wider, the game engine does not accommodate the assault column...

Why thank you, sir. We did try to balance the numerical advantage of the Union forces with scenarios that featured smaller battles where the Rebels are not overmatched and even have an advantage. I play Overland almost exclusively ... but I do have a bias.
