The only house rules recognized are those included in the club rules unless there is an agreement prior to the battle between the players to play something otherwise. It is not gospel to automatically include any other house rules and it is chicanery (not sure what that means but I'll use it) to pla...

"Most players won't commit suicide by attacking full strength (900 man) hexes that are fortified and allowing the Rebs to run up the score. They will stand off with artillery and see if they get some easy kills." I wish that were the case but the Rebs don't have that many men. In the outer...

You are on target, Ken. The historical outer line is too long and that is why a shorter inner line needs to be built. I was able to delay the Union forces long enough to finish the outer line and then get the inner line constructed. He burst through my outer line but it cost him and we'll see if he ...

We are at turn 184 in a game where I am playing the Rebs. The score is at about -15,000 which is a Reb major victory - so far. I was able to extricate Johnson and the Maryland Line units by forming a defensive shell around them until my opponent released them by coming close enough. We haven't gotte...

Don't know about forum members but definitely remember counts exceeding 775 people on the active rosters about 14 years ago.

Cam put in a tremendous amount of effort to create just such a list for the Red Badge of Courage Tournament that ran from 2012 through 2015. His list included HPS/BG/and custom scenarios that had been created (and he noted which were HPS). They were all historical and not hypothetical battles. If yo...

My opponents have been disappearing at a rapid pace. I have now started using deodorant in an attempt to attract more. Looking for any opponent for a standalone but must be Reb for a campaign. I will also take either side of the battle/campaign. Will entertain any offers (only taking on one or two a...

So the points for the individual players are the same regardless of whether the game is registered as a Battle or a Multi-Player Battle. I'm also not aware of any one within the club actually keeping up with Battles versus MP games for any purpose, to include awards/medals, so if someone registers a...

Did you just say that the points are the same for each individual regardless of whether a multi-player game is registered as a MP game or a battle?

Every now and then I see a game registered as a battle in the DOR but it has multiple participants listed. Can someone tell me if there is a difference in the points awarded for a MP game that is registered as a Multi-Player battle versus being registered as a Battle.

Opponent found - request is closed. Any opponent for a standalone but must be Reb for a campaign. I will also take either side of the battle/campaign. Will entertain any offers (only taking on one additional opponent and I don’t like Ozark) but will only fight using all options on except for MDF and...

Bartender, I'm out of funds. I'm just gonna lean back against the wall at this end of the bar and catch some shuteye. When that Danner fella comes in, just start pouring my first drink that he's buying and that'll wake me up. I'll congratulate him on how good looking his daughter or mother is (depen...

Ernie, I want to clarify something in what you wrote. The house rules included in the club rules are automatically used unless all the parties agree not to use all or any of them. Unofficial house rules (restrictions on night fighting, attacking in column, movement after dark, etc) are never used un...

Since nobody else is guessing, I may as well take a shot. I was going to guess Hooker, but he was usually preoccupied the first minute after midnight. I eliminated Leonidas Polk because I don't remember that being in the Bible unless one of his parishioners offered the saying during confessions. Nat...
