American Civil War Mini Campaign - Game 2 of 3 LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Part Two of a three session American Civil War mini campaign covering three battles. The battles will occur on Friday night, Saturday afternoon and Sunday afternoon.

*** Please register for all three battles! ***

The effects of battle will be present in subsequent battles and the commanders of the forces will have decisions to make between engagements that will add additional effect to the next battle.

The battles will be fought with 28MM miniatures and will use the Field of Battle ruleset from Piquet.

This is a terrific set of war game rules. The rules have some abstractions and devices to remove complete control of the players, making you more like a high ranking general of the time. Additionally, the battles complete in an appropriate time frame and have a finite ending condition.

In my opinion the rules cause you to think like an 18th century command staff:

1. The objective of battle is not a hill or a crossroads, but to destroy your enemy's ability to wage war. Certainly, that hill or crossroads might assist you in that effort.

2. Communication, planning and cooperation between commands is encouraged, but the friction of battle often yields the unexpected.

3. Attacks are encouraged where it makes the most sense and it is not wise to spend the lives of your little lead command unwisely.
