    CSA AoW under Lee destroyed an SP12 stack in Lebanon KY on final action of Spring 1862 turn. A minor campaign card enabled CSA to send Kirby Smith’s Corp (SP5) from Clinton TN against single SPs in Somerset (5-1) and Louisville (4-1) and end move with an SP in Louisville, Lexington, and Somerset. Second activation was Lee’s AoW moving from Bowling Green against USA forces at Lebanon (fort + Burnside, Buell, and Rosecrans). AoW was +9 with Lee, Forrest, Bragg, and USA OOS, combat resulted in a 3*/1 CSA win.

    USA secured MO and WV, CSA secured KY in the Spring of 1862 turn. No CSA raids. Two CSA forts destroyed (Louisville and Columbus KY). USA had secured the Shenandoah Valley and nearly all of northern and central Virginia, but ASJ in charge of AoT defended at Hanover. Note: Smith had detached from AoT moving to Clinton on previous turn. AoP, with an adequate blocking force at Manassas, chose to drop forces/convert spaces in Winchester, Strasburg, Staunton, and Charlottesville on the final USA action of the turn.

    Turn 1, Spring 1861
    CSA was able to gain control of KY and to control all 3 space in MD, cutting off DC.

    Turn 2, Summer 1861
    USA regained all of MD but was forced to play Foreign Intervention as the event. CSA formed Army of Northern Virginia.

    Turn 3, Fall 1861
    Army of Northern Virgina was able to intercept a move by Rosecrans, partially isolating DC. Quaker Guns denied Rosecrans a second attempt to reinforce the capital while Ball’s Bluff event weakened the capital garrison. The Army of Northern Virginia then eliminated the Army of the Potomac in an initial attack, and captured DC on the second attempt.

    Spring 1861

    Union shuts down the West Gulf zone by taking Fts. Philip-Jackson on the second card play and Sabine City on the following play. However, Confederate counters with an end of turn concentration that raids Maryland as well as taking Harrisburg. Union down 6 SPs in reinforcements.

    Summer 1861

    Opening campaign allows Union to clean-up Maryland and Harrisburg. Follow-up plays secure a defensive line across the former raid path from Harrisburg to Frederick, but Confederacy maintains a foothold in Harpers Ferry.

    Fall 1861

    Both sides open by fortifying their lines, in Frederick, Harpers Ferry, and Manassas. Gideon Welles raises the amphibious assault modifier to +2. Albert Sidney Johnston makes a strong push into Kentucky, sending an outgunned Buell to the turn track. But, Pope, who the play before had opened up a line in the northern defenses to move to Cincinnati, successfully assaults Fts. Henry and Donelson, forcing Johnston to abandon Kentucky in order to defend Nashville. Dysentery forces Smith to accelerate his time table and make a stab at DC through the hole created when Pope left Gettysburg. But, McDowell successfully intercepts in Baltimore, annihilating Smith’s out of supply force. Joseph Johnston subsequently abandons Harpers Ferry which the Army of the Potomac retakes during the follow-up Union campaign. Fremont foregoes an attack on Columbus, Kentucky, choosing to place the fort out of supply instead by occupying McKenzie and Humboldt.

    At this point, with a 3-op card remaining, Philip resigned for personal reasons. Union has the advantage in the west, but with Lee scheduled to arrive, the eastern front is nowhere close to secure as it needs to be.

    Also, note the SP count could be skewed because game ended before Fall 1861 ended. If there were no SP changes in the final Confederate card play, attrition would not affect these counts, though.

    Early win by Fremont at Columbus GA in opening turn and threat to Richmond by AoP, but swift movement of ASJ’s AoT from Kentucky to Virginia caused a pull back. Concession came at the end of Spring 1862 turn after CSA’s AoW under Lee destroyed an SP12 stack in Lebanon KY on final action of the turn. A minor campaign card enabled CSA to send Kirby Smith’s Corp (SP5) from Clinton TN against single SPs in Somerset (5-1) and Louisville (4-1) and end move with an SP in Louisville, Lexington, and Somerset. Second activation was Lee’s AoW moving from Bowling Green against USA forces at Lebanon (fort + Burnside, Buell, and Rosecrans).

    A Spring 1861 victory by AoP (SP6) over JJ (SP1) at Winchester, after JJ failed to retreat, triggered Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation and forcing CSA to remove SP3 early. Without another 3 card the USA hunkered down in Frederick after the victory.

    The card draw really favored the USA! AoP (SP15) opened the Summer 1861 campaign by assaulting the SP8 stack under JJ and Stuart at Manassas. After initially withdrawing to Fredericksburg, JJ stood and fought when he failed the second retreat attempt. McDowell left Buell and SP3 to guard at Manassas and took the rest of AoP (SP12) to Fredericksburg for the battle. McDowell’s AoP, with McClellan, Rosecrans, and Pope was really on a role and won the large battle, forcing JJ back to Hanover at SP4 strength, insufficient to create an army. JJ fell back on the SP2 at Richmond. USA then ambushed and killed Stuart. After CSA placed a fourth PC in KY, USA hit them with a discarder. The final CSA play of the round finally saw JJ get his command of AoNV. McDowell sent Pope on detached duty to isolate Richmond, dropping SPs in Wilderness, Gordonsville, Charlottesville, Burkeville, Petersburg, and Suffolk.

    With no reinforcements and Richmond cut off, CSA concentrated forces at Hickford Jct. The USA concentrated SP6 in Manassas and SP6 in Fredericksburg with McDowell’s AoP, and SP2 at Gordonsville. No CSA campaign to open, so USA opened with AoP scrapping up SP4 at Manassas, SP1 at Wilderness, and SP2 at Gordonsville before moving to Hanover (converting), and Richmond. Battle was SP13 vs SP3, combat roll was CSA 2, USA 4 for a 3*/1 USA win. CSA conceded match as hopeless after that.

    WV and Kentucky when Union. Union AotT destroyed in a short Peninsula campaign on turn 5 at Fort Monroe. End situation was 3 state raid with AoNV in Philadelphia and AoT in Chambersburg (MD, NJ, PA raied).

    Union tried to develop threats to Florida on 3 occations, only for threats to WDC requiring a recall of the troops. Twice, the CSA tried to cut off WDC via Ironclads in Aquia Creek, but the Union sank them almost instantly. Only leader death was Hooker, who died almost as soon as he entered the game.

    Fastest game I ever played. On to Richmond dragged AoP south leaving DC & Baltimore wide open to destruction in the final move of turn 1. AoP was also left OOS with only 2SPs. Union would have probably started turn 2 with only 55 SW and confederates in good position to raid MD and PA.

    At the end of turn 6 the South was able to take Harrisburg, Philadelphia and Trenton, the price for this was the sacrifice of Forrest so that the AoW could have enough infantry SPs to occupy those cities. This left the Union with less reinforcements but it also left the South with Lee in Trenton with 5 SPs , no cavalry, and even worse Grant entering the next turn. So while the Union formed an army in Lewistown for Grant, Lee ran back to Virginia but, because the Southern player was greedy, he stopped on the way to convert Chambersburg and so only got to Harpers Ferry. Grant got some cavalry from the AoP in Washington, left 3SPs in Frederick and took Manassas with 8 Sps. From there he cut off any possibility of getting cavalry to Lee. It looked bad for the south, who brought Longstreet up from Tennessee to Western Virginia to see if he could help out.

    With his next move the Union decided not to cut off Lee in the Valley, put him out of supply and most likely destroy him, but instead decided to strike at Richmond which was held by only 2 SPs and a fort. Being cautious, he converted Williamsburg, tracing supply through Fort Monroe, so that he could attack Richmond at +7 to +2, instead of +7 to +4. The south thought things were not looking good, Richmond lost, Lee wounded and Grant sitting powerfully in the center of Virginia. Well, as you may have guessed Grant did lose that battle, even though he had a 77.8% chance of victory and had to retreat back to Williamsburg which is the worse thing because there are only three ways out of Williamsburg, allowing the South to bring Longstreet into Richmond and effectively pen Grant in for the remainder of the game.

    So with one die roll the North went from beginning to dominate the game and getting a big SW lead to having their best general trapped and, Lee with a new cavalry leader going right back into the North and recapturing Harrisburg, Philadelphia and Trenton again. A feat they were only able to accomplish because someone had the foresight to convert Chambersburg at the beginning of the turn. Go figure. Better to be lucky….

    From the end of 1861 to the end of 1862, Union didn’t received all of his reinforcements (11sp, 14sp, 13sp), which allowed CSA to push hardly on East front.
    Autumn 1862 was deadly for Union: loss of AoP during the defense of Washington-DC, which didn’t avoid the fall of Washington-DC, then Union lost a major battle. Last nails in Union coffin: control of West Virginia and 2 raids in Maryland and Pennsylvania.

    USA started with Glory Halleluiah in his hand on turn 1, which made for some very interesting naval forays resulting in the early conversion of Texas. CSA then focsued on the East resulting in simultanious raids in Ohio and Pennsylvania at the end of Turn 3. Ultimately, other factors required Mark to focus his energy elsewhere and after a month of no plays, the game was called.

    After taking the forts at the mouth of the “Father of Waters” on the first impulse, the USA then went on to close the Western Gulf Zone with the landing of an expedition at Sabine City. The CSA took advantage of the dearth of SPs in the east to play Draft Riots in NY, thus threatening the nation’s capital, which only had token militia manning the guns around the Potomac! Through some last-card maneuvers, the USA was able to reinforce the east and prevent an early capture of the capital or a raid into PA or MD, but an incursion was launched by the rebs that took Baltimore and cut the capital off from its RR links north.

    Turn 2 saw boat-loads of infantry disembarking at Washington Navy Yard only to be ordered directly into battle by McDowell before the AofNV could be formed. The resulting large battle produced an extreme result 5* to 3 that pushed the South out of their Manassas fortifications and made it all but impossible to build an Army for the next few turns, thus opening the way for a future Yankee move on Richmond and ushering in negotiations that allowed for the reunification of the country after the war’s first “Napoleonic Battle of Decision”.

    McDowell goes on to defeat Lincoln in the next election; and well the rest is alternative historical fiction…

    In the Spring of 1861 the USA navy captured Fort P-J, while the CSA left the USA in control of the river to convert Kentucky to the Confederate cause. The Blockade goes to level 1. The USA is much more active in the Summer of 1861 as Pope lands in Jacksonville FL and advances to Live Oaks, coming close to driving Florida out of the war, while Halleck marches through Kentucky to Nashville. AS Johnston manages to eliminate him from Nashville before the end of the turn. In the Fall of 1861 Bragg is sent to Florida to contain Pope and manages to drive him back to the ports with the help of a concentration card. CSA loses 5SPs in the effort.

    In the Spring of 1862 Lee organizes the Army of the West in Western Virginia and CSA gets a couple of reinforcement events. USA captures Fort Morgan and Burnside makes a play for West Virginia, which Lee counters and secures West Virgina for the CSA cause. USA is hampered by 5x OC1 cards in the Spring.
    In the Summer of 1862 Pope manages to capture Fort Gadson and shut down the East Gulf, but the rest of the turn is spent countering the CSA threat to the capital. The CSA uses Western Concentration Block to reinforce the East and a Minor campaign to pressure the USA. Raids of both Ohio and Western Pennsylvania hold up as the USA attempt to cut their supply line is stopped by Quaker Guns. CSA completes the conversion of Missouri with an OC3.
    The CSA draws a great hand with a Minor and a Major Campaign for the Fall of 1862. Lee wins a large battle against the AoP and the two confederate armies quickly out number the two USA armies in the area. Both USA armies are eliminated and the CSA captures DC when Burnside rolls a ‘1’ on the critical defense of the DC. I don’t believe it would have mattered, as the loss of the Large battle and both USA armies were sufficient for the CSA SW to double the USA SW at the end of the Fall turn.

    Interesting Notes:

    Lots of Strength Points died the last turn in major battles over Richmond (Union trying to deplete Confederate forces and/or kill off Forrest or to reduce the modifier to be able to take the spot). A Confederate concentration card helped save the day. Forrest managed to survive the game.

    SW numbers reflected this strategy. Alternate strategy would have been to finish off Texas and Arkansas by Grant, leaving Confederate SW in 0-9 range and Union SW in 70s. The union player (without knowing my cards), decided that the Western strategy might not be enough and opted to go for Richmond. CSA started last turn with 11 SP in Hanover/Richmond and 6 in Lynchburg, with the USA having over 37 SPs within 2 spaces of Manassas. It looked like he might be able to overwhelm the CSA there.

    It was a lethal game, more dead generals than I have ever seen:

    Six dead Union Generals (no Cav replacement generals).

    Eleven dead Confederate Generals (including Wharton who did not re-enter because he died in the last three turns.

    One Union Army under Sherman was destroyed in Hanover/Fredericksburg area turn 12. Cut off from LOC end of turn 11 with a Jackson sweeping maneuver and hit twice with a minor campaign the beginning of the next. Without this, the Union would have had a good chance of winning. Union had to use two actions the last turn to create a new army with Sherman and to get Halleck out of the way of the command. Scattering the returning generals instead would have burned several MPs and been equivalent to the extra card play.

    The Union player had some bad luck in the middle game with the Fort in Columbus (KY). I think he attacked that fort about 5 times before he took it. Union kept rolling lower results than the defender on the Medium table. It should not have taken that many tries. After the fort finally fell, Lee had to retreat East to be in range of a replacement CB which opened the door for Grant to burn Jackson and take out LA (occupying northern spaces) to get around the Fort at Little Rock.

    Interesting plays:
    Summer 1861, US used Farragut to AA Savannah, capturing and converting both Savannah and Ft. Pulaski.
    In succeeding turns, Burnsides took his Corps from Louisville and marched through Kentucky, Tennessee and Georgia to link up with Buell in Savannah. In 1862 US then built the force into an Army, led by Burnsides and proceeded to destroy Charleston, Augusta, Macon and Atlanta. With CSA forces hot on his heels, Burnsides then fought his way back to Kentucky, then through West Virginia and into Virginia to threaten Richmond.
    In Spring 1862, ANV and JJ attempted an invasion of the North, and was at the door, but US played Detached Cav to lower the battle mods to about even, and the US won the ensuing battle.
    Summer 1862, ANV and JJ attempt an invasion of the North through WV, but is trapped and destroyed.
    Summer 1862, McClellan leads the AoP into Virginia and captures and destroys Richmond. CSA relocates capital to Columbus GA.
    Fall 1862, US converts Virginia and it rejoins the Union.
    Summer 1863, Grant is in Command of the AoP, in Louisville KY and is pinned by Lee’s AoW. Grant uses a Minor Campaign to move the AoP to Dover TN, capturing the fort there and opening up the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers to US. Lee retreats from KY to counter Grant’s move. Grant attacks Memphis and is repulsed by Polk! Grant retreats to Dover and then to Nashville where he wins a Medium Battle and triggers the EP.
    Fall 1863, with the AA level at 5, Hancock captures Ft. Gadson and the US converts it in the next round. CSA moves ANV (reformed) with JJ to Macon to guard Columbus. US sends Meade and 3 SP to AA Columbus…JJ fails the intercept and the US captures Macon, putting the capital to flight a second time and driving the CSA SW to “0.”
    The hero of the game has to be Ambrose Burnsides, commanding the Army of the Tennessee…not only did he raid deep into Georgia, he was able to linkup with Buel at the coast, form an Army and destroy 14 points worth of supply center, cut the CSA rail net at Atlanta, Savannah, Augusta and Clinton TN, but he then moved to KY to stabilize the CSA attempt to convert it, then secured the B+O rail line through Grafton before capturing most of Western Virginia. Grant/AoP was a powerful force, but Burnsides, for 5 seasons, tied up the CSA from Georgia to Kentucky to Virginia.
    Thanks to Jon for a great game! He was very patient as I made more than a few errors in counting Sp’s, locating troops and leaders and remembering where I or he had put forces….I had very good cards, and got more than a few good die rolls, so can attribute some of this to just good fortune.

    Union brought in most of the border states in the first several turns but was stalemated by the Kentucky/Tennessee/Little Rock forts. Blockade yet to be organized. In the East, ANV lost Stuart early to a general casualty roll and the AoP was able to aggressively take much of northern Virginia establishing a fort and the AoP at Hanover. Spring 62 the CSA got a bunch of blockade manpower cards along with a card stealing event and a mnor campaign and was able to swing out of Richmond to the west and isolate DC and the AoP. Summer 62 AoP is able to re-establish supply at Urbana but ANV swings back through Richmond from the west to defeat the AoP intercept at Hanover and bottle it up at Urbana. Then with Lee in command ANV marches north at the end of the turn to capture Washington. That was enough for the Union even though they ended the turn bringing in Missouri.

    ALL of the action concentrated in the east for the first 5 turns or so. Confederates were able to get one early raid into Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh. But Union came up with timely intercepts to keep hold on Washington. Blockade level was quickly to 4 which helped US get a nearly 2:1 SP lead. Confederates never able to break through to Washington.

    Notable:
    Stephane/CSA got FI played in turn 3, after converting KY, which drove the blockade back to zero and sapped Union SPs throughout the game.
    Stephane did a great job at conserving SPs throughout the game, minimizing attrition and limiting his offensives. CSA scored no raids, but instead built 3 big armies and forced me to come and get him – which proved very effective.
    The Union scored no big victories in the game, instead nibbling around the edges: taking KY in turn 7; Texas and Arkansas in turn 9; LA and MS in turn 11.
    The heart of the CSA was never breached, with VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, and AL still firmly in CSA hands at the end. TN might have gone over in the last turn, but before we got that far, I drove CSA SW to zero by killing an isolated army and playing two event cards, one of which was detached cavalry to burn Atlanta.

    This game was going rather poorly for CSA..early 2 Blockade (later reduced) and very few CSA reinforcement cards (only Religious Revival in 6 turns). US made an early capture of Sabine City and took TX further reducing CS manpower and also outfought CS in KY eliminating that extra SP for the CS. The real disaster for CS occurred on Turn 4 when corps stack with Lee intercepted into an important fight at Manassas with ANV and Lee was killed despite being 1 of 7 generals..so the odds were against it but still. CS had to be very cautious for several turns..but did mangage to almost trap US AoT in eastern TN but it escaped. Finally on next to last CS move of turn 6, Smith out of the ANV raided up to Philly squeezing thru H-F past the AoP in Frederick on a 50/50 shot. Quaker guns stymied the US response leaving DC cut off and a -6 SP hit next turn. Still I think the USA had very good chance to prevail had it continued..the loss of Lee is really crippling for the CSA and no matter how low the odds using him before becoming an Army general is a potential game loser for the CS.

    Great game but the South suffered from three turns of Union card play removing a card from the CSA’s hand. This really hurt the South at a crucial juncture right around turns 4 through 7. Union followed a policy of deep raids using amphib assaults and targeting Southern Resource centers and going last on three turns with the ensuing double move really pounded the south. Excellent opponent.

    Appendage: While the USA secured MO, the CSA took WV (on the same turn) creating quite a wedge in the Union; 3 CSA armies formed while the USA still had 1; No large scale battles but several medium ones.

    CSA took KY on turn 1 and threatened to raid and/or cut off Washington early while hoping for FI. FI didn’t eventuate and the USA decided the best way to defend Washington and the North was to capture Richmond, ending CSA hopes of FI forever. USA then began a campaign of attrition aided by a constant AA threat; with VA, AR & TX eventually falling. The CSA managed to build and maintain three substantial armies to counter three assaulting USA armies, somehow avoiding disastrous cav losses and EP. The game ended with Longstreet’s AoW defeating Grant’s AoT in two large battles in Humboldt TN, leaving the USA no chance of knocking the CSA out of the war in Spring ’65. MO remained neutral to the end!

    Fun game; Union opened with a Major Campaign taking Columbus Ky and catching J.J. and then followed with the E.P. and then two more ‘3’ cards. South grabbed Kentucky and West Va in the Summer of 61 with a Major Campaign and then it was three turns of dueling for Richmond. Union kept hitting at Richmond’s flanks and LoC. At one point Richmond supplied by AoW under Albert Sydney fighting to hold open LoC corridor in North Carolina. CSA reinf. cards came when needed most. South finally secured Richmond in back and forth fighting north and west of the capital with Lee and the AoNV protecting Richmond and Albert Sydney covering the western approaches. I was reminded of why you don’t leave the Piedmont too open. Tom was a great opponent. Real life just got in the way.

    1861

    Union opens the war with Cape Hatteras to raise the blockade level and then with the aid of two campaigns, closes out the East Gulf Zone by taking out, in successive card plays, Fts Morgan and Gadson. Confederacy unable to take advantage of the reduced manpower around DC because Fremont collected SPs in the west and chased Joe Johnston from the Shenandoah Valley on his way to gaining West Virginia. Confederacy uses its own campaign to take Kentucky. Three campaigns in the first turn(!). Because of the closed zone, this will be the high SW mark of the South: Union 109(+)/Confederacy 105(-). The remainder of the year is mostly preparatory. Union fortifies Manassas, Harpers Ferry, and Bloomington. Confederacy forms Army of Northern Virginia under Beauregard and Stuart and Army of Tennessee under Albert Sidney Johnston in Lebanon. Union forms Army of the Tennessee under Burnside in Bloomington. Union plays a discarder to end Summer 1861, preventing a raid in the east. Costly Mistake to open Fall wounds Stuart. Confederacy draws no 3-ops in the Fall, so unable to build a fort in Louisville (or anywhere else) to cross over. The year ends at Union 99(-)/Confederacy 96(-)

    1862

    The Army of the Potomac pounces on Lee’s 5 SP corps in Staunton and Lee rolls a 6, failing to avoid the attack. Union wins the battle and, with just 1 surviving SP, dispatches Lee to the turn track due to excess generals. This will set the tone for the rest of the Spring turn as that victory fittingly triggers Emancipation Proclamation. In addition to that campaign which takes out Lee and gains 6 control markers in Kentucky, the Union also raises the blockade level, receives 5 SPs from Emergency Call for Volunteers, and uses an ironclad card as ops to fortify Louisville. Meanwhile, the Confederacy spends its only 3-op to build a fort in Nashville to stop the Army of the Tennessee from crossing into Tennessee. At the end of Spring 1862, Union 96(-)/Confederacy 77(-). In the Summer, Confederacy finally gets a 3-op for a fort in Paducah, but another Union discarder removes a campaign card. Union gains Kentucky in the Summer. Confederacy picks up Missouri in the Fall. Union 105(-)/Confederacy 67(-).

    1863

    Confederacy uses up its last fort in St. Louis, and finally launches a successful raid on Illinois. In the Spring, Grant loses two large battles to Beauregard, but after Polk dies, the likelihood of continued general casualties prompts Jefferson Davis to take the SW hit and promote Jackson. Grant loses another large battle and several medium battles in the Summer, but does manage to push Jackson back into Richmond, killing Bragg and Ewell. Fall 1863 is truly the Siege of Richmond as every single Union activation results in a battle in Richmond. Grant loses two more large battles, but kills Jackson’s last general (Forrest) after the third battle loss and destroys what is left of Jackson’s army after the fourth battle. Lee’s army falls after the sixth battle leaving a 1 SP division move out of Norfolk to mount the final defense which is amazingly successful (only on a 6). Grant is down to 3 SPs with only 8 other Union SPs in the eastern theatre and DC empty. Richmond is empty for the third time in the season, and aside from the 2 SPs in Ft. Monroe (which Grant can freely intercept), the closest Confederate SPs are in coastal forts or Georgia or Tennessee. However, the raid in Illinois continues. Union 60(-)/Confederacy 60(-).

    Early in the game CSA successfully raided several states, including NJ. However, a slight overextension and good dice rolls allowed the USA to take Richmond. Still cleaning up the CSA raids took time and there was a CSA sp in Atlantic City for the duration of the war, penned in my a USA sp in Camden.

    USA pushed into the West as CSA had to bolster Eastern forces, taking Tennessee but then Jackson took control of the AoT and fought battle after battle in Mississippi, fending off every attack. It looked impossible to breakthrough, but then after a concentration card based attack Jackson died despite being an army commander. The result was Van Dorn taking command and promply losing a large battle.

    It was not until the last turn that USA took a CSA state other than TN, but the West crumbled and TX, AK, VA and almost MS (saved on the last card play) fell, resulting in CSA victory.

    On game turn two the South played an interception card so the Union was able to use it’s last card – a major campaign – to breadcrumb through Kentucky, Northern Virginia, and Mississippi and to burn Jackson.
    On game turn three the North used a discard card to get the last move again and burned the Columbus-Dalton-Atlanta metroplex area.
    On game turn four Lee and Forrest at the head of an army attacked Atlanta, but Buell intercepted on a 1 and Forrest bit the dust. The south unable to remove those pesky Yankees from the pork belly of the South conceded.
    Let it be duly noted that the South got no reinforcement cards in the game and crappy rolls of the die.
