I thought it was going pretty well, and six was the perfect number of people. You have to have the presidents in there, otherwise, you'll run into disputes over generals, since the US western and CS eastern theaters tend to have the better leaders, and without someone to say, "Yes, you really do need to transfer so and so to the other theater" you'll end up with disputes about that.
It was tough for me to list out my needs as far as new units went. I don't tend to make out lists about things like that playing solo, I tend to go more by instinct and that style of purchasing doesn't work well in something like this.
There are some things that would need to be clarified for future games, things like who controls an amphibious force if it is dropped into the southern part of another theater. Personally, once we took New Orleans, I would have preferred to immediately transfer command to my western counterpart as he would be able to better coordinate any moves with it. Though as it turned out, it didn't do much.
It would be interesting to see how a more forcefull and interfereing "president" would do. Rafiki was good, in that he basically just asked us what our plans were and let us do what we could to carry them out. But having a president that would override your orders, much like Lincoln did in the early part of the war would provide an interesting challenge. I'd love to see another campaign get started up, whether I was involved with it again or not. It was kind of interesting to see how both of us eastern commanders were having much the same issues and worries.
