We've played that scenario several times, and have always found the flanking force the victor, but always a very close game. I've never played it with RW troops, so might give that a go tomorrow. Nice report.

Very cool, Tin Man, thanks for posting.

Quick questions:

1. What mechanism are you using to decide when to draw a Fog of War card?

2. What events do you have for Fog of War (I saw the two that came out in the game, I'm curious how many more there are and what they are)?

Thanks in advance.

Hey Jack! I am drawing a Fog of War card at the beginning of each player's turn, but large number of them say no effect. I did customize them for each army, when I get home tonight from work, I will post them out on the blog and let you guys know.

In one of my previous tweaks of OHW, I was rolling to activate each unit, to try to show to qualitative differences between the armies, but that was cumbersome, so now I am trying to do it with the cards. The British have more positive cards than the Americans.

Cool, sounds great! I was having a great time with OHW, but my 7-year old boy seemed to be getting a bit bored with it. I believe the boring part was the muskets, bayonets, and horses, not the rules; he seems to like tanks, mortars, and machine guns a bit more ;)
