Hi All

An assessment of the rules after playing one solo and three opposed games:

This rule set is simple yet through the card mechanisms, not complicated but multifaceted. You will never know what might happen at any given point (however your opponent can only play one interrupt card during your turn).

Movement: simple
Firing: simple
Combat: slightly less simple (as different qualities are used for attack and defence)

Quality of play: excellent, you need to play it through to experience it.
Campaign: brilliant! Again you need to play it through to see how good it really is.

The photos are from my first solo game where the opposing campaign forces (1861) are the same.

Looking to have a couple of more games in the near future, will report back. Now where is my copy of the Narrative of the Civil War by Shelby Foote..............
Regards

Looks like one of the scenarios from the rules. Thanks for the concise report on how these are. I don't have enough 28mm done yet to do a game, but looking forward to when I do.
