We have an Overland MP Game of a modified version of the Campaign Scenario, the 1390 turn monster that has been going on for almost 2 years now and we find ourselves in need of replacement players. Seems the CSA side needs 2 more players and the yanks need at least 1 and might be able to use 2 players.

Before losing players we had been turning this game over fairly well averaging 6-7 turns a month and with the CIC's handling the night turns to speed things up, as
the original house rules included no night combat, so the night turns are usually completed in a couple of days.

The original CSA team elected to pull back to Richmond early so although we have played 186 turns the casualties have not been extremely heavy.
The rebs have lost a lot of cavalry and a couple infantry brigades that got cut off are down to their replacement units.
For more information on the CSA situation and commands available contact Gen. John Dragan, he's leading the CSA team.

The yanks need a replacement for Hancock, the 2 Corps has recently seen some action but is not heavily damaged.
As CIC I am currently running the Cavalry Corps, Artillery Reserve and Train guards and have taken over 2 Corps temporarily.
The Cavalry Corps is also available although at this point in the battle I'm not sure what I will want to do with them,
we have discovered a well entrenched rebel MLR and the fighting will probably get heavy in the coming day and
I do not plan to use the cavalry to hit entrenched infantry so you may find yourself handling flank guard or scouting
unless I decide to send them on a raid.

If you're interested in joining the yanks contact me and I will give you more information and
I can provide you with the files you will need to join us.

Ken,
I can take over Hancock. Keep me away from the Cavalry, I will ruin them!

I'll be glad to take your Cavalry Ken, if there's room on the DOR registration.

Jim, David
Busy weekend for me, yesterday was monthly gaming group meeting and
today is grandson's birthday party so I will be busy until this evening.

Will email you tonite or tomorrow with more info and the files you will need to join the yanks.

I didn't think about the DoR, will have to contact John and discuss things.
I'm thinking we should close out the initial game record and create a new one so we can add more players.
Probably should have done this before as there was previously a big change over on the yank side.
I have the email records of the game so I can probably figure things out so the various players get credit for the turns they played.
We can reference the original Game ID in the comments to connect the records.
Going to check with management and make sure this is acceptable.

Anyone interested in joining the CSA side contact John Dragan or Ken Jones.
