Are there many that play with selecting all Optional Rules?
I am happy to check all Options and go!
I am happy to check all Options except MDF.
I only play with a select group of Options.
I don't care, you choose I play.

I have played a few games of late with all Options selected (including MDF) and have come to like it. Are there many members that do like wise?

I didn't vote because my choice was not on the list . . . I like to play with all options on (including MDF) except for a certain few (artillery capture, the new FOG, etc)

In that case option 3 seem to match you.

Nope. "I only play..." doesn't jive with my "I like to play..." which means something different.

I say Sir. If I could, I would, change that to "I like to Play". Upon reflection, "I only play" does sound harder nosed than I intended. In fact in retrospect, "I like to play" should preface all of the choices.

Got a certain set I'll play. I can maybe agree to removing one but not adding any.

I have come to like *love* all Options selected (including MDF and weather). It, in my opinion, best represents a real civil war battle. Linear tactics and a serious awareness of the fatigue state of your troops are really important.

I have come to dislike the blitzkrieg tactics of other options, especially when used with attack from column. I know many like that style of play and that is great. But I have come to appreciate and enjoy all options selected better.

I prefer all Options selected. :mrgreen:

As Randy can attest I am the one dolt who will play any way, I did/sort of do have ones that I like, but am flexible at the same time. Just like to play when able to.
