I have already adopted a "house rule" for Overland: The use of assault columns against breastworks and entrenchments is permissible after May 10th--the date of Upton's introduction of the tactic against the west side of the Mule Shoe. Grant ordered the same tactic in the May 12th assault a...

Gentlemen: Your positive comments on our efforts are most appreciated. We also enjoy the critical ones but I can assure you that we've heard them all before--from ourselves. We had a great team testing the game, including some very knowledgeable fellows. We know that Overland represents the best of ...

Ok, Don. I might not get it started until Friday night.

I would do it tomorrow if I could afford it but I just got the kids through college and now I have to save big time for the next 9-10 years. I would like to watch the grass grow by the time I'm 63.

I think the concerns expressed about this title are premature. Yes, in most of the longer scenarios, the CSA player is likely to succumb to numbers unless they play defensively and use the tools that this game engine provides them -- trenching ability. John Ferry didn't just arbitrarily raise the ra...

This is a great scenario -- I tested it myself. Give me a brave Reb that likes a good fight.

What's this? A real live Rebel? I was beginning to think that we had won the war and that all the Confederates had returned to their homes and families. This is great news. Let me know what optionals you would like and I will start up the scenario.

Doug:

There doesn't seem to be any Rebels willing to play Overland. I'll play the Rebs if you would like to try a scenario.

Sir:

I couldn't find a Reb officer and if one fails to answer your challenge, I am available for a maneuver.

I will happily introduce you to any medium or short scenario of your choice. Several turns per week is typical.

If no Rebs show up, I'm happy to play the Rebs in a maneuver.

I can destroy my opponent through application of numbers but I cannot beat him through better play? Sir: You may remain unconvinced that the ANV's high quality rating leads to better outcome without sacrificing historical reality. But I can assure you that Union Army's role as the aggressor in 1864...

Mr. Wales: I commend you on your mode of play. I also like to play blind with minimal intelligence of the scenario. It makes it all the more fun. Campaign Overland provides the Rebels with protective terrain and defensive works that provide them a fighting chance at a victory. The big battles have o...

I should start a new thread for designer notes on Campaign Overland but let me pick up the conversation here: 1. Rebel Supermen (A Quality Units) - What this really comes down to is playability. Historically, the ANV generally held their defensive positions even when facing extreme odds. There were ...

Lee did not want to fight at Gettysburg, but after the tactical victory of the first day, he did not want to deprive his men of a major victory. Remember, Lee was looking for a knockout blow, not little victories. He thought that he had gained the advantage. BG Ken 'Muddy' Jones 5th Brig/3rd Cav Div...
