Hey Ben - good to see you here. I've had my eye on this one - the theme sounds really interesting.

You should come over here to continue your thread - the site is moving. You'll have to re-register, but no biggie:

I don't care about posts...I just want to make sure my hard earned Karma transfers. Grin

Ooooh! Good point!   Grin

No. You can't move your Karma over. Everybody loves what you post and gives you Karma left and right. Those of us who are less pithy need to be able to transfer our Karma to get a head start on the likes of you.
I'm afraid I already moved it for him.

It seems to mean something to some people.

Ah, go ahead and knock me back down. I need a challenge anyway.   Grin

If people really want, I can move their Karma. Tongue

If you would like something lamer - I once saw George Stephanapolous in a Starbucks in DC. He is in fact as short as he seems.

That's more like it!   Grin

Also, with respect to your specific example, I think it's historically accurate for a unit to receive untimely orders that might not make sense given the current context. It's also historically accurate for someone like Nelson to put his telescope up to his missing eye and disregard them.   Grin

I think that unless you're playing at an unconstrained grand strategic level you're going to get this in one way or another. Such directives are often baked into the victory conditions, for example, even if you're not overtly forced to carry out such an offensive with your units. One way or another, in a wargame, you're going to be on train tracks of some sort. I've seen a few 'sandbox' wargames that transcend this, such as 'Amateurs to Arms', but not often.

I shook Jimmy Carter's hand before he was President.

This reminds me of that story about Amy Carter and the Butthole Surfers...

I met Muhammad Ali once.  My wife worked at a museum in Washington DC where they held the premiere party for Jurassic Park.  So my wife and I and some of her co-workers crashed the party.  The stars of Jurassic Park were there, and so was Spielberg.  And Ali.  So I went to shake his hand and said it was a pleasure to meet him.  I was kinda tongue-tied about it...

I'm sure he gets that a lot. Pretty good party crash, there, btw.
