I frequent Jenny's page (Draw the Sword, No. 10) every few weeks. She shares two other interests I have, photography, which I haven't done a whole lot of lately and running, which I do almost everyday. She is a very gifted photographer and her civil war photofgraphs are posted here:

The dwindling subject matter aside, I think the system is getting a tad stale. Probably what would help most is a review of the engine with an eye towards incorporating a "wego" turn similair to the Johnny Reb miniatures system or the old World at War games. There would still be the board game flavo...

Yes, I remember Roger when he was commander of the 4th division, I Corps USA (we had no armies then). And then I remember when he was given command of the new IV corps (still no armies) where I had commmand of his 4th division. Time frame-1997-1998. Welcome back Roger. Gen. Doug Burke XX Corps/USA O...

Probably the best Civil War talk I attended was a tour of the salient. My wife and I were just out taking a drive (we lived in Middleburg, Virginia at the time) and just stopped in. Not preplanned or anything. A guy was there, said he was a volunteer and would be starting a 30 minute tour in the nex...

Great discussion guys. Upon reading Marks "heads up" regarding the EBay deals with ACW, I went ahead and pick it up for $8 (well ok, $11 with shipping). Thanks Mark. Col. Steve Johnson, a club member whom I actually see face to face two or three time a year and talk to almost weekly, also picked up ...

1. Generally, do you play in 2D or 3D? 2D 2. What's the longest battle you've fought, in turns? Ken's last moderated game. Whatever 3 days works out to be. 3. Do you play in single phase, or multi-phases? Answer as a percentage for each. Single 4. How many ACW games do you usually have going at once...

Only the unit in the hex with breastworks receives a benifit. Picture 125 yard wide hexes while picturing the Sunken Road (a ready made breastwork) at Fredericksburg. The CSA was right up next to the stone wall while the USA advanced to maybe within 30-40 yards. For both to benifit the range would h...

The question of having the attackers rout is a fair one and would certainly be a step in the right direction toward a more realistic gaming model. But, as usual this needs to be looked at in context of the game as very little here happens in a vacuum. The current set up with only the defender routin...

I like Ross's suggestion regarding disrupted units too. Sometimes this has been incorporated into games as a house rule. Another house rule occasionally used is that of half movement for units/commands beyond the command radius of their leaders. Gen. Doug Burke Other hobby: Running 30-40 miles per w...

I like the BCE concept also. In the GBACW series it usually became a critical factor later in a game. Squad Leader and ASL also had a morale adjustment if a sides losses increased past a certain point. It'd be great if ZOC's were dependant on unit size, unit morale and unit fatigue level. I know we ...

It'd be great if we got the USA perspective on the battle, what went right and what went wrong for their side. Between the two posts by the CSA's AC's the USA players now have been provided fairly accurate picture of what the CSA went through. C'mon guys in blue, don't be timid, give us a clue to wh...

Great game Ken. Thanks for the experience. This is my third game played this way (fourth if we count the short experimental one on the Shiloh field with two moderators) and I think it's one of the best ways to play albiet frustrating. I too looked forward to Saturday evenings when the turn usually c...

Myself and Col. Steve Johnson are looking for a coupla of officers to have at it. Possibly HPS Gettysburg. Could do either single battle or campaign. I'm sure we could round up a third officer if three rebs turn up. We're lookng for a start after the holidays. Gen. Doug Burke Other hobby: Running 30...

I'm a member of a 4 on 4 MP game where Jon was involved and got a note from the CSA leader (BG. Boyd Denner) that Jon had to drop out of the game because of work committments.

May be the same for other games as well. Anyway just a thought.

I remember all those Great Battles of the American Civil War games of which TSS was the first. Still have most of them. Back in the early '80's a group of us played one double blind (EFOW) with myself as the referee. We had two copies of the game (it was Pleasant Hill from the Red River campaign) se...
