Gentlemen,

I find myself in need of a game.
This is a long post, if you're not willing to use the Artillery Capture option you can stop here, I don't play without it.
For those newer members who don't know me I have been a member in the ACWGC off and on going back to the BG days.
Have done playtest work on several of the HPS/JTS/WDS ACW games and did the update to the manuals in 2020.
Not a gamer, I prefer to play using a historical perspective.

My Optional Rules preferences

Those I use
Victory Points for Leader Casualties
Density Fire Modifier
Night Movement Fatigue
Mounted Cavalry Skirmishers
Quality Melee Modifiers
Isolation Rules
Weak Zone-Of-Control
Partial Retreats
Automated Defensive Fire
Flank Morale Modifier
Bridge Limit and Repairing
Artillery Capture
Artillery Retire By Prolonge
Artillery Ammo by Cannon

If you wish to use Quality Fire Modifiers I will require Rout Limiting, evens things up for the favorable class ratings given to the rebels.

I leave these up to you, I don't care either way
Higher Disrupted Movement
Alternate Fixed Unit Release
Mixed Organization Penalty
Optional Fire Results
Optional Melee Results
Proportional Opportunity Fire
Extreme Fog of War

I don't use
Higher Fatigue Recovery

If you want to play Turn mode I use
Full Melee Defensive Fire
Optional Melee Resolution
They aren't needed if you prefer Phase Mode, your choice.

House rules
No infantry column attacks except at bridges/fords or from the first hex after crossing. This is the only way to melee across a bridge and if your opponents sets up one hex back you can still melee in column.
During night turns no advance beyond your forward positions. You may move around behind your lines, if you have an outpost on a road you can move along the road until you reach your unit.
For my reasoning on this you can see
https://wargame.ch/board/acwgc/viewtopi ... 34&t=22656

I can provide 2-3 turns a week, perhaps more depending on the size of the scenario.
I have all the WDS ACW games and I'm willing to play any scenario or campaign in any of them except Overland or Petersburg games.

You can send a PM or email me.
