How does this play PBEM? I'm used to playing tactical wargames PBEM, but it seems that this one has a lot of back and forth with the evasions, retreats, etc.

Anyone willing to give me a game?

Thanks!

Sure, I've played this plenty via VASSAL PBEM. It's great in that you can dash off your turn in minutes.

If you want to play some CCA VASSAL PBEM, drop me a GM and we can get going.

Does it work PBEM, not live? Any thoughts on that? I love CCA, but don't seem to play it much.

I've played many games of it PBEM. It's just a different experience. Whereas live, one of the big pluses of CCA is how quick it is with constant back-and-forth, in PBEM things go much more slowly. However, each turn is very quick, so you can fire off your next move in under 5 minutes. I play a lot of different games via PBEM. In a game like The US Civil War, it might take me half an hour to do up a move. One of the joys of CCA is that every move is a quick shot of wargaming fun.
