It has been YEARS since I've crossed the threshold of the MD. Life got massively in the way (I've adopted 6 kids, and my gaming laptop crashed). Only now have I been able to acquire a new laptop and get my old games replaced. In that time, I see JTS has been hard at work generating more titles for me to blow (I mean, *wisely spend*) my money on...so I will be doing that periodically as the opportunities present themselves.

I've noticed several of the officers with whom I was familiar (even if only by name) have crossed the river..I salute them, and I greet all the new members, and look forward to meeting you upon the field of battle one day. I have a plan in place to hopefully prevent a major gaming interruption in the future...at least, as long as Microsoft cooperates and does not come out with a plethora of new versions of Windows in the coming years that render all my installs worthless... :)

Anyway - just dropped in to say that it's good to be back, and I'm looking forward to getting some games in soon. Advance notice, I'm only good for probably 1-2 turns a day most days, by virtue of my work hours and other responsibilities, but I try to play more on weekends to make up for it - just can't have more than 1-2 games going at once.

Regards,

Col. David McWaters

It looks like a SALE at JTS will happen in June, according to JTS on facebook, for you to stock up.

Welcome back.

Welcome back to the colours Suh. You will find the ANV a shadow of it's forma self, to much time spent doing parades and perfecting the super moustache. If you wish ask for a transfer to the fine CSA Army of Tennessee. :mrgreen:

Colonel McWaters, it's always good to see veterans returning to the fold! Just don't let General McOmish trick you into that old the-newcomer-must-buy-the-next-round-of-drinks routine of his. He likes to brag about losing a leg at First Bull Run and having it replaced with a hollow one he fills up at times like this. Don't believe it for a minute - he just drinks us all under the table. :(

I suppose I should inform the group of my current ACW gaming inventory.

I am (at least for now, unless/until I find more ACW games worthy of play) solely a JTS/HPS gamer. Had no backup for the AGEOD games, and I can't find my FoF CDs (not sure if that would run on Win10 anyway).

I have the following volumes currently, with plans to purchase the remaining volumes over the rest of the year.

Peninsula
Atlanta
Chancellorsville
Chickamauga
Gettysburg
Overland
Corinth

Good for about a turn a day (usually), but given my current RL situation, I can't spend too much time on the front lines, so I will be unable to play more than 1 game at a time, most likely (we'll see how that goes). If I DID get 2 ore more going, all past the first one might have to be "weekend play only" when I typically have a little more time to devote to it.

I shall throw out an inquiry to the group - has there ever been any interest in / discussion of playing some of the fine ACW board games via the VASSAL engine? Example, I have River of Death (Chickamauga) by GMT Games and "The Civil War" by Victory Games - although I would need to find a replacement copy of the rules for each. Just throwing another idea out there. I'm looking to hopefully pick up a few board games in the near future (the Worthington Press series), would be ecstatic if I found some opponents for them...

Regards,

Col. McWaters
ANV

I have been working on bringing ACW board games (GBACW series) into the club for some time, but I are having issues getting the victory conditions for each battle as I do not own them all
