That's great! I know it will be a sell out. It should have been done a long time ago.

It fits all the demographics of what appeals to AA players.

Look forward to buying it.

Looking forward to Civil War Larry. It's always fascinated me, particularly Sherman and his march to the sea. Great choice. Good to have you back on the forums too.

The industrial disparity between the North and the South is giving me some problems. I have several systems that I'm looking at, however. For the moment the game is on the back-burner, but I agree that it needs to be published one of these days. Thanks for your all your collective words of encouragement.

I found that out as well. The solution is multifold, which i know you prefer a more elegant or clean solution.

But this is the classic: "bad guys have starting better attributes and generals versus the larger Goliath of northern industry"

Here are some balance changes that favor the south--

Union Desertion rolls:
During the first years of the war up to 200,000 Union soldiers deserted.

Southern Cavalry was alot better than Union

Allow potential of the South getting foreign aid from specific victory and or success of blockade runners.

Of course, the South had better Generals, which could be modeled

Make the North have more "low lying fruit to pick" in terms of economic targets.

Combat attrition has a sapping effect on the Unions ability to sustain war. At some point, the will to fight drops. The South are basically fighting for existence.

Allow the Southern player the ability to capture Union artillery from combat.

Create Veteran infantry of which the South starts with alot more and make it hard to generate new Veterans.

just a few ideas you might not be looking at.

I'm looking forward to what's coming next, either be that War Room, the CotE reboot or the ACW game. So Wizards is no longer aiming to publish these kind of tabletop games? Will it affect Larry expected sales or the ability to reach the most people possible?

Luckily for the North 200,000 Southern men join the Union forces, while only 5,000 Northern men join the Confederate forces, thanks, Pellulo
