Gettysburg The Wheatfield - Tattered Flags 1 - American Civil War Board Game

Gettysburg: The Wheatfield – Tattered Flags #1 – American Civil War Board Game

Gettysburg: The Wheatfield – Tattered Flags #1 – American Civil War Board Game - Tattered flags is a series of kriegspiel-style historical miniatures/board games depicting battles of the american civil war (1861-1865). The final scenario is a dramatic, “what-if” meeting engagement battle. Feel free to substitute miniature figures if desired there are three scenarios included in gettysburg the wheatfield, each with its own order of battle (oob), special rules, turn length and victory conditions. In this first game of that series, each player controls a union or confederate force at the battle of gettysburg, struggling for the wheatfield on july 2nd, 1863. Since many players do not have the time, funds or eyesight to paint armies of miniature figures, tattered flags comes with colorful cardboard counters, called “stands” (in the vernacular of miniatures gaming). Gettysburg the wheatfield was carefully crafted to introduce players to the system basics of organization, events, maneuver, fire and morale, with future games in this series promising to expand the detail and accuracy of the tattered flags system. The second scenario is the historical scenario depicting the actual fighting that occurred during the afternoon of july 2nd. The first scenario is introductory in complexity and is used when someone is first learning and playing the game. These games also use a printed battlefield game map in lieu of miniature trees, hills, buildings, etc.
