Multiplayer Wargames

I’m part of a local gaming group that has four, maybe five, members whom I would consider to be primarily wargamers and three or four others that are “wargame friendly”. In the past we’ve been able to get together to play things like EuroFront, Sword of Rome, The Napoleonic Wars, and a few other multiplayer games over a weekend or a few weeknights. Unfortunately these gatherings have been few and far between and organized in such a way that, for a lot of us, the very first experience playing the game was the big event itself.

Last Chance for Victory

Last Chance for Victory. A re imagining of Gettysburg built on the new Line of Battle Rules.

The neat thing is when this goes on Pre Order july 1st, you can order and have your time stamp record and noted against a specific event in the battle! The battle began 0830 EDT (0730 ACW time) on July 1st, 24 hours from now.

It would have been cool if they thought to collect the time stamps and stamp each buyers box on the inside with the Time Stamp and event ….that might be too complex.
