Are you a fan of the American Civil War (ACW) time period? Are you like me and love seeing a beautiful table laid out with incredible terrain and massive amounts of miniatures recreating some of the most famous battles?
However, are you like me and have terrible nightmare at all those miniatures to clean and paint? How about putting all that stuff away? Well. DOC Educational Games has come up with a nice way to get your ACW fix in without all those hassles with The Civil War Experience Card Game.
They have created a card game where you can play as the Union or the Confederacy. In this game you have 6 different card types to replicate infantry, cavalry, artillery, gear, resources and extraordinary circumstance.
In this game you will have to manage your troops and resources to keep you army going. There is some luck involved with dice rolling to assess successful hits against your opponents. What does it take to win this game? Eliminate your opponent from the battlefield, plain and simple. So, this begs the question how good of a general are you? Will you lead the Union army all the way to Atlanta or will you command your Confederates in the taking of Washington D.C.?
While this game was designed by a history teach as a fun and easy way for his students to learn about the ACW, anyone who is interested in this time period would enjoy this as well. Nothing like gloating over your decisive victory with your opponent with drinks at the pub.
Are you up for a quick game?
"Will you lead the Union army all the way to Atlanta or will you command your Confederates in the taking of Washington D.C?"
