Not so much of that really. But Honor and Glory are the rules we were playing at the club yesterday. Yes it was a good game but alas not a win for me this time.
The initial positions with Peter my commander on my right (that's his hand) We had the confederates in an 1864 scenario. My orders were two fold. Seize the town which the fedrals were intent on burning down (the rotters) and capture the crossroads. Peter would also Capture the crossroads (a joint objective as it was between our lines. His other objective was to take the bridge.
Union troops form a firing line.
I bring my Rebels up in skirmish order taking and returning fire. Hardly a fair fight but what else could I do.
Peters troops close in on the Crossroad. Peter it must be said is a Murdering officer. Tim Opposite him had 3 Gun batteries continually firing at Pete's troops
I get into the town and then get pushed out of the town. I re enter with the buildings burning. And then manage to push some of the union out.
I loose a General in close combat and get expelled from the town. I also gain by chance a unit of reinforcements which are at this stage my strongest unit on the board.
While it did not go all the Union way the extra turns they got from the Card gods at the beginning of the game made a big difference. Allowing them 2 shots to my one. So when the card gods finally decided to even thigs up my units were so damaged that their shooting was weaker than the Federals.
Not complaining we could have won, but we did not. A good game but a win would have made it a better game for me as me and Peter were up against it given the size of our units at this stage of the war. Oh well maybe next time!
