Gentlemen, I am happy to announce the completion of our Last Man Standing Tournament! We started with 88 participants who battled it out in a single elimination tournament with members being seeded by their OBD point accumulation. Each side fought internally until only one Confederate and one Union...

I agree that it would be a great Optional Rule for a future version to include.

Until then, everyone be sure to be on the same page as your opponent before starting a game. If you don't want trenches to be used, make sure you state that at the start.

The specific war this is from isn't important. A bad officer is a bad officer in any war:


"Do not worry if you do not survive the assault, as we have plenty of backup troops who will just go in over you."

Just as an FYI, in case anyone prefers the older graphics, you can switch them back from the 4.0 graphics. New Map.jpg If you open up the Game's folders, you will see one labeled Map . Open this up. You can see in the picture below what is inside. Folder.jpg You would then take all those files and,...

The one in brackets (correct me if I am wrong anyone who is 100% sure) is the original leader rating without the effect of command tests. The command rating can go up or down based on whether they pass or fail their check at the start of the turn.

General Strickler: No one has suggested the LOM is “broken.” During our discussion of this proposal within the Cabinet you asked for examples of the kinds of acts that would warrant award of the SSM by the Cabinet. I responded with the following: -An officer who has been in the club for one year de...

Hello Will! Absolutely, chime in. I love a fun discussion about the gaming mechanics. I am probably one of the more "gamey" players in the Club. If the gaming mechanics will allow you to do something, like stack 16 guns in a hex or block an infantry melee using mounted cavalry, then I am ...

I'm not deep in that topic but isn't there a probability that trenches are build set in the PDT? If so did the old titles get their PDTs updated to allow trenches at all? Titles not using trenches should have zero build probability and only allow them in special scenarios that maybe depict sieges o...

It may be better to settle on a date (anything pre-1864?) whereby trenches are not allowed to be constructed during a scenario. For example, Campaign Shenandoah has all Jackson's 1862 Valley campaign battles - I don't want to have to overcome trenches in those scenarios. Agreed. The 1862 Shenandoah...

I agree with both Paul and Josh. Adding new medals when there are more important things (and fun things) to be doing and considering seems like taking a step backwards. With both sides dramatically reducing their overall awards the Cabinet seems out of step here. The recent club survey found awards...

The use of trenches in Overland and Petersburg, and even part of Forgotten, make perfect sense. But for older titles, such as Shiloh, Antietam, or Gettysburg, it is a potentially game-changing, scenario-destroying, issue. Imagine trying to attack Cemetery Hill with Federals using trenches. How abou...
