Love the use of the paper\card table, I do the same on occasions for small scale games as I have some old draughting sheets (though nothing of that scale).
Also did you take part in Paul’s Napoleonic campaigns ? I suspect I opposed you on occasions29/12/2017 at 12:35 #80125
Yes I did. I recall being a Spanish corps commander when a French corps was captured, to my complete surprise. I also commanded a Prussian corps and was roundly thumped. I do recall several players sending their orders to the open group, reminding me of Lee’s special orders wrapped in cigars in 1862. I have thought of trying my own version of Paul’s system but the amount of work involved always puts me off. I’m sure I was in a third campaign but can’t recall any of it.
As for the Chickamauga game, it was a real surprise that at the end both sides ended up using mounted cavalry. The situation was so chaotic that most didn’t get a chance to dismount, which is how we usually use them.
