Hi,
I am Michael Johnson and I am addicted to strategy games. I hope this support group can help.

Seriously, I started with Terrible Swift Sword a bajillion years ago, I worked with Richard Berg in the 90s, and I did a little helping with the Phillipes at Ageod for a few years.
I own Ageods ACW2, The new Grand Tactician Civil War, and I don't know maybe half of the Tiller campaigns.
I have never actually done the campaign for Second Manassas/ Antietam but would like to try, I enjoy Peninsula but the first time I played neither me or my opponent wanted to start the attacking, so not a lot happened. Shiloh campaign is good, Gettysburg is great but I do not play Brandy Station as a personal rule due to a long standing disagreement with John Tiller.

I bought Vicksburg but have not found an opponent yet, hmm, oh, I have Overland mostly just to look at, am too afraid to actually try that monstrosity.

so, yeah, I just joined, see you all later.

Welcome, Lt. Johnson!

Michael, we're glad to have such an experienced tactician join our Club.
Hope you enjoy making many new friends here.

Experienced yet insanely rusty. I used to have a couple of friends that I played these games with regularly, but they have both lost interest in wargames and mostly only play Civilization and what-not. So, very rusty.
I am playing Brawner's farm for the first time against Lt Col Garret FitzGerald at the moment, we will see if I am remembering anything.

Fld Lt Johnson

Hi Michael,

I'm a Confederate, but would be happy to start a campaign with you.
