Updates for the 4 main documents for the Civil War Battles series have been released this week. Ken Miller has done an excellent job refining these documents. These can be applied to any game in the series you own. They are located at the top of the Civil War Battles section on the Updates page. https://www.johntillersoftware.com/Updates.html

Bravo Rich and Ken!

Great to see this comprehensive update to the rules and supporting documents. The additional graphics and explanations Ken has produced will go a long way towards making the fine points of refined play less mysterious and painful for those new (and not so new) to the ACW Series games!

Still a bit confused, Is this the same person who was I believe a General before. He seems top be using the same avatar and signature of that other person! I don't get it!

The change was at the request of the member and concurrence of the Cabinet.

Just seems strange that Rob Meadows changes his name to Blake! Do a lot of other members do that? Just makes one wonder why he would do that and why would the club let him!

A mere nom de plume I used for a while. All is still the same otherwise :)

Feel free to email me anytime with questions though. Always happy to chit chat over a friendly game!

Why? Just seems that after building a number of points and obtaining a rank of General, you would change you name and rank. Just makes me wonder who you really are and if a lot of others are not doing the same thing. Just a trust issue with me. Doubt if we would ever play a game because of that!
