Game 25mm ACW take that hill
Both side have 4 infantry Divisions and 2 Regiments of cavalry and 4 Guns
Before starting the game I have made a map and decided  on the orders for both sides.
Now we all know that any plan can go astray. So I have added in the arrival on to the table a factor .
With one percentage dice and a six side one  the total on the dice is the move that unit will arrive .
