I am still willing to play the scenario as designed in the 1864 Overland Campaign -- not the linear campaign -- as the Rebels to illustrate that the scenario is fairly balanced -- it uses fixed units and releases them during day 1.

But you don't have to employ those tactics....there are alternatives to the Linear Campaign. Try the 1864 Overland Campaign where the units have fixed release times -- mimicking the delay in the Union Army's reaction to Lee's aggressive advance. This gives the ANV time to dig in at those objective l...

That is why I gave the challenge to see if anyone really thinks the Rebels can give the Union army a stand up fight that would be required if Saunder's Field and Parker's Store hex values were increased to 1000 VP each. Of course they can't stand toe-to-toe with the Union. This is 1864. You could d...

I don't think that Lee had any reasonable chance of taking the Brock Road intersection --historically speaking. On the first day, the Confederates could have taken the intersection simply by arriving an hour earlier... but I don't know if they could have held it long given the dispositions of the fo...

Possible alternate scenarios: 1. One should shorten the scenario length and fight the battle in separate days. Day 1 would give the Rebels the early advantage; Day 2 would find the Rebels hard pressed with Longstreet arriving; Day 3 would find the armies entrenched as historical and let the players ...

I can't speak directly to the scenarios mentioned here because I did not design the scenario. But, one has to realize that Grant and the Union had at least a 2-1 numerical superiority at the beginning of the campaign -- especially since Longstreet's Corps historically doesn't show until the battle i...

Hmmm. Stumped me; John coded the weather so you'll have to wait for his reply.

I'm looking forward to your scenario.
