Long distance battle via text

 The ACW campaign has generated a battle and I was pleasantly contacted regarding actions for my division on the tabletop.

It was a fun way to have my mind engaged via the long-distance game.

The battle has progressed ...

fully deployed artillery - though now
screened by other Union troops
should that attack falter, we are in position
to backstop them and halt any
counter-attack instantly

This image has by Division moving to deploy on the far left
of the Union position

The battle is at Manassas, and as was historically happening the Confederates are rushing into the location ... I do hope the GM is keeping track of how exhausted and less effective such units would be.

Long Distance Diversion

 So a little ACW game has cropped up and I have a chance to get a feel for another game-master's approach to the e-mail running of a campaign.

sample image from the cyberboard game

I have produced a cyberboard gamebox from the map done by another player and some flag scans of my own.

Combined with the data set from the Napoleonic Campaign of Nations game that I did in 2013 and I have a full set of pieces in a new layout.  Shared this with the campaign organizer.

Looks like a tabletop battle or two is brewing (wink-wink) and there may be a video game from the tabletop in the near future.

What have others been doing to connect during the latest variant overwhelm?
