No one has heard of AGEod’s American Civil War computer game?
My son just purchased it for $10 with Christmas Money. He thought it would be an action game but it is not. It is very detailed though and I’m still trying to figure out how to play it.
I thought there was already a topic on this, but I couldn’t find it.
So, I played this twice last year with 5 friends. The first game (for all of us) I won as the Starks on the super rare third (and final) tie breaker by a dollar (I think that’s how it went). The second game we got too drunk and someone dropped a phone on the board and screwed up the entire placement, so it was left out.
Anyway, does anyone have an opinions on it? I’d love to talk strategy, especially since it’s been almost a year since we played and I’d like a refresher. had some ideas but don’t know how they’d work out.
Very balanced game it feels like, even though it’s fairly complicated.
If you want a good Vietnam board game, try out Vietnam 1965-1975.
It is a hex based game, using counters for playing pieces. The game is from the 80’s and you’ll find it on Ebay.
For sure, no game depicts the vietnam war better - with hidden units, ho chi minh infiltration routes.
Beware though, that the Grand Campaign 65-75 takes hundreds and hundreds of hours to play. However, there exist about a dozen smaller scenarios (like the Tet offensive amongst others).
All Axis & Allies games. Some American Civil War games. Also Railroad Tycoon. No time or players for any others. I thought that I would like online versions of AA but the commitment to others that I do not know is awkward. I feel bad if I start and then have to leave before the game is over. If its someone that I know then we can always save and continue later. I am involved with this forum only.
