    New Opponets

    I would be happy to play a game with you. I'm still fumbling through the in and outs of PBEM so I somomtimes have to wait for my wife or son to be a home grown Geek Squad for me but I still manage a fairly quick turn rate. Send me a message and we'll get it going.

    Out of practice player

    I haven’t played in a long time and might need some help with the mechanics of sending a game back and forth. I have Antietam and Peninsular and have not preferences on what or who I play. I do promise a quick turnaround time for turns. I’m very free with my time and terribly bored.

    Antietam just came in the mail.

    To heck with the peninsular game! Now I’m looking for a Sharpsburg shoot out. Any rules any parameters that interest you. As long as you don’t act like the AI you’ll surprise the heck out of me.

    beginner peninsula game

    . I've already ordered Antietam. You get 1st and 2nd Bull Run with it. I have the BG version of Bull Run (somewhere) and I really enjoyed it. So Antietam sounds like a very good deal with lots of maps and variations. I've managed to force my family to visit Antietam during a near by...

    beginner peninsula game

    I haven’t played by mail in three years would appreciate some help to get restarted. I should be an easy opponent due to “ring rust.” I’ve been playing the AI all this time and am sure I have picked up all kinds of stupid tactical habits. I’m planning on purchasing some new games so I’d...

    I need practice.

    I just finished the first round of Hard Road to Travel and don't have a game running right now. All I have is Campaign Peninsula and really need the practice. I don't want to mess up the tourney so I could use some guidance on what is typical. Is there anything that would not be kosher? Ruin...

    First Bull Run Alex vs Mason Jar

    Alex had about quadruple the number of points he needed for a major victory. Literally! He should get Major Victory with Extreme Prejudice, Gold Oak Leaf Cluster,and Sprinkles on Top!

    First Bull Run Alex vs Mason Jar

    Well it's official; I Suck. I lined up for defense and tried to sneak a brigade past his pickets to pick up an objective or two. Messed up both. I didn't hide my arty so as soon as he realized what a strong position I was in he declined to march into the muzzle of my guns. Then I must have...

    Music: what are you Listening to now?

    Don't worry your brain will come back. It will about the time your kid starts listening to some crap that you can't stand. Hap Palmer was my favorite from when the kids were little. "Sittin in a high chair, big chair my chair. Sittin in a high chair, bang my spoon" Right now I'm...

    First Bull Run Alex vs Mason Jar

    Well I should have been clearer. Alex didn't understand that I didn't want to surrender after all but he had already called off his troops so I got mine back in column and am marching them back to Washington to sit in garrison until they can be exchanged. Question: Will the loss of points...

    First Bull Run Alex vs Mason Jar

    I have swept the enemy from the Stone House and Henry Hill! Only problem; there was no enemy there. He made no attempt to meet my flanking thrust at all. I’ll have the objectives at the Stone Bridge and the Portici farm and he’ll have a division of mine in chains. My right side at...

    First Bull Run Alex vs Mason Jar

    Well I kep Moving back and forth trying to figure which of the three sides he would pop up on and he poped up on all three sides. I had moved my reserves over to butler farm, but put then on the east side where my line was the longest instead of the west side where it was the shortest. Alex...
