PS: To the person that said they are looking for a copy of Wilson's Creek with aligned counters - drop me a note - I have one.

And as soon as we have enough results to be realistic, I'll publish the feedback here.

Item descriptions follow. But first:

These files are only usable if you have the games originated by SPI. Looking for them?
Most of these can be obtained at any of the places on my gaming links page.

Also, I often have extra games, or a line on someone who might have a game for sale.

Drop me a note if you're looking for copies - or if you have copies for sale. (Click here)

Now, the item descriptions!

NEW! from Greg Laubach -  counter images!

Corrected counters for Wilson's Creek! (click here)

These fix the color problems on the 3 LA 1, and creates new arty counters
to bring the grouped arty into the GBACW standard.

Optional Counters for Drive on Washington! (click here)

"These counters represent Breckinridges division, which was  guarding the trains at Frederick
during the battle, but was available, and three of McClennan's regiments that were anticipated,
but did not arrive in time for the fight." --- Greg
(from the article in Moves #50. )

Outlining the differences in pinned / ammo depleted / out of command units

Playing TSS 2nd Edition, it can be hard to keep the subtle differences in mind. This short table clarifies the units capabilities. (Click here for free download!)

Cedar Mountain Victory Point Tracker (Version 1.3!)

A free download of the Excel spreadsheet for tracking Victory points for Cedar Mountain
: this is an improved version of the Victory Point tracker on the original CD-Rom.

bulletTracks the victory points and keeps a running total throughout the game.

bulletNow tells you the level of victory!

This version also has a handy macro key to clear the sheet after you are finished with the game!
(You'll have to 'enable macros' when you start up to use the macro feature, however!)

I suggest you download it if you liked the original. (But you'll need Microsoft Excel to be able to use this.)

Security Problems with Macros? Just Choose "Disable Macros" when the option pops up. Everything but the fast cleaning option will work.
