The Best American Civil War Strategy Games

Fri Dec 28, 2018 12:28 pm

Wargame Developers love the American Civil War, with its romantic notions of “brother against brother” and the development of warfare from line battles to quasi-trench warfare slugfests.

I agree about the Hexwar series. Don't let the apparent simplicity of them fool you. Some of the scenarios are a bear to win, especially on the higher difficulty levels.

I notice you left out the John Tiller series of Civil War simulations. They've recently received updates including very nice 3d graphics.

It was the recent upgrades to Campaign Gettysburg (after having already become addicted to Seven Years War) and a very enjoyable Panzer Campaigns Stalingrad purchase that led me to buy Gettysburg (and Petersburg) by JTS.

Yes that game is on our radar. Might wait for it to flesh out a bit first before we feature it, we'll see. WoR is at least playable.
