I. This is a 'starter tourney' to get people interested, and to see if we can draw a few people who are NOT currently using VASSAL into trying it.

II. Thus, the games are ALL SPI's Blue & Gray Quad games, including B&G II games, along with Road to Richmond.


The Attacker Effectiveness rule IS in EFFECT for Chickamauga, Shiloh, and Antietam. I disagree with Berg and say it SHOULD be in effect for Cemetery Hill, but I will allow the CSA player in Cemetery Hill to decide if it will be in effect for that game. (Unless it is a match of two games - then the rules must be the same in both games.)

(See notes under the errata on

III. All games will be played using VASSAL. And the first round of games should be finished by the end of August.

In the first two rounds, efforts will be made to pair all players  by their game choices. After the third round begins pairings will continue to try to match by game, but it may not be possible in the final rounds of the tourney.

Because you can choose the game to be played, realize careful choices of the shorter games will mean shorter play time. 

IV. Want to play? Send me your first round choice for games by sending me an email via the B&G Tournament Entry Form!

Please limit your choice to three of the games, and also choose the side you would prefer.

Point: if you simply say 'any' then if you are paired with an opponent that HAS a choice, that is the game you will be playing - and he will have his choice of side!

V. There is a minimum of 1 exchange every 8 days, unless agreed to in advance.

The winners of the first round will be paired in the second round, and anyone with a single loss will also be paired if they wish to continue. Those losing in the first round are free to continue in hopes of getting a chance to knock off the champion, OR for placement purposes.
