Buy books......buy books.../

What do you do? tear of the covers and underline the good parts. A guy could grow old waiting for an answer to a post here or on the steam forum. So let me cut to the chase: 1. Two out of the last three games as the south and I had at least two victory hex's and more VP's than the north and I got a ...

Re: A review is up on AWNTT of Gettysburg: The Tide Turns

I have a different view of the chit pull feature. I like the idea as it adds a an element of chaos and confusion to the game and creates the basic tenet of civil war battles. I have noticed that the AI seems to get to move first in most turns and I wonder if this is as designed. I would like to have...

some questions

1. there seems to be a bit of bias in the random selection toward which ever side the AI is playing. Is this correct? 2. is there any way to have more than one saved game? 3. In a game where I was the South and at turn 11 I had 5 victory hex's and more VP's than the North and I got a continue game. ...

Re: some questions?

Yes I believe what you say is true but in the single player campaign game with Takada I choose more large units and still had less troops than the AI. In the first battle where I faced the AI I had moor troops to start with but the AI's strike force comes on from the east side of the map facing a ri...

Re: some questions?

It was said by a previous reply that when you choose you units you can go for quantity (cheep units) or quality( good units) and your strategy with more units (even cheep on the flanks ) you force the AI to spread out and you chances of getting a flank or rear shot increase. I will reserve judgement...

Re: some questions?

Yes I have known about P&S from steam. Not sure why I did not buy it at the time. I might have been thinking that porting a miniatures game to the computer would not work but when this game came out I bought it because the period covered was one of my favorites and I had played a miniature game that...

Re: some questions?

Yes I think you are correct. I have been approaching this game like any other computer game when in fact it is NOT a computer game rather a miniatures game based on the "fields of Glory" tabletop rules. In my youth when home computers were just starting (my first an Apple 2E first game Zork) I used ...

Re: some questions?

Thanks quality vs. quantity was what I was thinking. With Tanaka in the campaign I had picked quality but fighting the first battle was difficult even on the lowest difficulty setting. I won but had high losses. The second battle I had no way to win because I was really out numbered. The problem for...

Re: some questions?

It was the campaign single player. I think you are right. I also have come to the conclusion that I had a disadvantage in troops because I tend to pick quality over quantity. Isa there any way to allow the computer to select forces in the single player historical campaign?

some questions?

love this game and several(make that many) years ago I played a table top battle using the "Fields of Fields of Glory" rules. I love the Warring states period also. I just need to get some answers to a few questions 1. I tried the single player game with Takada and noticed I was attacking and the co...
