Crumbs, look at the poll, if it doesn't interest you, don't bother with it, that's what I do.

And who says polls must be daily, anyway?

On the topic, yes, I've used it a couple of times in ACW naval games. Thoroughbred has a tugboat and barge set with a couple of the barges full of cotton bales. pcglabs.mun.ca/~timm/venice has as an objective to get the barges from one end of the table to the next.

POLL DESCRIPTION

In Charge! issue 6, Larry Reber writes about using cotton bales as a scenario objective in an ACW game. During the later stages of the war, cotton became a prized commodity that could be sold by enterprizing Union soldiers for quick money.

Have you ever used cotton bales as an objective?
