What scenarios make the best MP games?

Chickamauga and Antietam come to mind. Folks usually shy away from Shiloh, but I think it would be very interesting with the right command arrangement.

The custom Gettysburg one called Struggle for Control (by Rich Hamilton) is a good one, I am on to the third time playing is as an MP, lost the first two so hoping for a better result this time, I can send you the files (two versions one with VP hexes and one with out) if you want them

Thanks Cam, I have struggle, was just looking to see what else people liked for MP games. Ring me up if you ever need an MP player.

I think the biggest reason a scenario is good for MP play is the way that you can logically assign forces. If the scenario has 3 corps, with assorted cavalry and artillery train, then a 3x3 MP game looks good. You want to be able to, roughly, assign each player the same size forces. Also, you do not want a scenario where one players troops take 50 turns to get involved.
