Re: Seven Days Campaign Game

Ok. Count me in, if you have room. I can play either side, but would have a preference for the Federals. I actually had ancestors on both sides of the rebellion. Great great great Grandfather Shown was in the 2nd Kentucky (Union)cavalry, and I had a great great great uncle (Williamson) killed at Ken...

Re: Games for 2016

I also see interest in the Seven Days campaign. I could be up for that. Todd - are you up for Civil War?

Re: Games for 2016

I would be good for Chickamauga, but my time at Winterfest will possibly be limited to 3 or possibly 4 days. I imagine this is a lengthy game. Perhaps we can do a scenario, and I can use this as a learning opportunity.

Re: Date for Winterfest 2016

Looks like I will have to miss a portion of Winterfest this year. We are going to Florida on the 16th of Feb for three weeks.

Re: Post 2015 Improvements

Honestly, this rule set has made it to the table so may times - and has had problems so many times - that I've decided it's better for me to invest in other systems. I worry about significant house ruling just because it usually throws the entire game off balance even further with multiple unantici...

Re: Post 2015 Improvements

I agree copmpletly although I have only played the game 4 maybe 5 times. I would like to add the following for discussion. 1. The WWI feeling comes from the Russians being able to mass troops at critical points with no regard for the political consequence. Stalin would never have allowed huge gaps ...

Re: Post 2015 Improvements

Not sure how GMT Barbarossa game ended up, but I think some rule modifications are needed. Seems like AGS never gets very far, and AGC is always behind schedule. Well, if i recall correctly, we managed to plow ahead through about 20 turns. That is an average of about 3 turns per day. Not bad consid...

Re: Post Winterfest 2015

I would be up for something from the Civil War, or perhaps of the Napoleonic era.

Re: Post 2015 Improvements

Not to beat a dead horse, but a lot of the comments listed here reflect an unfamiliarity with the rules and how to make use of them. True - they may need to be better written (I'm still finding things that I have totally missed), and there is a concerted effort on COMSINWORLD to do just that. There ...

Re: T-Shirts

We need shirts! Nothing too political - more on the games.

I am especially interested in seeing something for our 20 Anniversary!!!
