Greetings Gents,

I am Cadet J. Milton Taylor. (Just call me Milt ... only my mother calls me Milton).

I hail from Northern Ohio and currently live in Cleveland. I have been a board gamer since my youth but was never one for solitaire. Good opponents who share my hunger for competition are thin on the ground, however. The idea of belonging to a club of like minded souls drew me to your ranks.

I have the Battleground set (Antietam, Bull Run, Chickamauga, Gettysburg, Shiloh). I have whipped the contemptible AI in all of them. My specialty, however, is Gettysburg. I have not tried the HPS games or any of the others listed by the club but would not be opposed to buying them and learning them. I'm a quick learner and love a challenge.

I am looking forward to the experience of contest by email. A hardy handshake to you all.

Respectfully submitted,

Cadet J. Milton Taylor

Welcome aboard.

I never had one of the Battleground games but I heard the HPS/JTS series was "evolved" from the BG series so I guess HPS/JTS is superior in at least some points.
You obviously want to consider the "Campaign Gettysburg" as starting point but you could also ask on the main form for a recommendation where to start, HPS/JTS are now at 12 games for the Civil War series and that's a big pool to choose from.

Hi Milt: Welcome to the Club. I hope you get assigned to the AotC because it is the best Army in the Union and generally you can get a free drink at the Tavern. Good luck to you and happy gaming.

Greetings Major Hecht!

Thank you very much for the suggestion. I am, indeed, going to download HPS Campaign Gettysburg.

What is your favorite game?
