It all depends on what you have seen before. If you only have two weeks and haven't seen any or most of the battlefields between Richmond/Petersburg & Gettysburg its a no brainer. Within a 4 hour drive from either end (don't take 95 during weekends or rush hours) you can see all the big battles, Gbu...

Even though it isn't perfect, I now play all my games in single phase and really don't want to go back to MDF. For me its one of the big advantages of playing HPS rather than the old Battleground games. I'm very supportive, however, of any efforts to improve it, such as making the d-fire more effect...

My thanks to all in the club, Yank & Reb, for so many hours of quality and challenging gaming (too many if you ask my wife) and all the good comraderie. Special thanks to those who keep the club going and provide such a great and fun forum for gaming, you guys are the best! One word of advice, "If y...

So far, my favorite thing about Atlanta is one of the leaders - Capt. G Robinson, 4th Div (Veatch) artillery, XVI Corps (Dodge), AoT (McPherson) - my wife's great-great grandfather. He appears in at least one scenario "Sherman's Advance on Atlanta" I've never had a relative in one of the games. He e...

Sir, I've got some time to do some whipping on the Rebs. HPS GBurg, Shiloh or Vicksburg would work and I'm also flexible on scenarios - would prefer a medium size one and can average about 2-3 turns a week. Send a courier to our HQ with a couple scenario choices if you're still interested. Col Ed Ly...

Sir, I just finished capturing Richmond (08a - 7 Days) in just 59 turns and my boys are ready to take the Rebs the last stronghold. I have ordered Vicksburg as well and expect to be ready to go by the weekend. My only caveat is that I'm probably not going to be able to average more that a couple of ...

Hell, if Grant had been at Antietam the Civil War would have been over by Christmas 1862.

 Forum: Mason Dixon Tavern   Topic: Shiloh counterbattery fire too effective??

I would tend to agree with the effectiveness of counter-battery fire, particularly if you are using the quality fire modifiers and with some of the games, i.e. Rich Walker designed. I played Grand Battle (hypothetical Battle of Frankfort) and the Reb batteries had devastating effect at medium to lon...

I'm playing 8a - 7 Days (407 turns) for the second time and find CPP a very good historical model - i particularly like that the forces have a good mix of quality, even it it tends to the lower morale as seems historically appropriate. The first game ended quite prematurely on the afternoon of Day 1...

I too was engaged with Tom Barber last summer in a rousing Campaign Peninsula game only to recently find out about his tragic death. Although I only new him through the commraderie of cyberspace, he was a worthy and skilled opponent and more importantly a very fine person, with a clear love of Civil...

Looking for Reb opponent in HPS Gettysburg or Peninsula (not campaign game). Open to most scenarios, all optional rules except manual d-fire. My preference is the monster 7 Days Campaign scenario 08a or one of the variants. I started this one last year but my Reb opponent vanished without a trace be...

I'm currently playing 7 Days Battle with these house rules. 1. Infantry can melee only from battleline except through hexes that would disrupt or prohibit line formation movement, i.e. town, marsh, abbattis, bridge. 2. Leaders, wagons,limbered artillery cannot block retreat for melee. 3. Units used ...

I've played 3 Gettysburg campaigns, one Corinth and the first game of a Franklin campaign (some advice on Springhill for the Yanks, don't try to win this one by holding ANY objectives). By far, i liked the Gettysburg campaigns the best. I played the Corinth campaigns against a very superior opponent...
