Slitherine’s rather excellent early modern era wargamer, Pike and Shot, is getting a new feature – and it’s rather a biggie. The latest version brings a campaign system to the otherwise tactical battle game, so instead of being stand alone battles with no impact on the progress of the war, your successes and failures can have strategic meaning.
