Description Edit | History

"Cemetery Hill is a simulation, on an operational level, of the gattle between the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia at the town of Gettysburg, PA. The game covers the period from 1 July to 4 July, 1863, when these two armies fought the bloodiest battle in American history to that point. The game system is an adaption fo the popular Napoleon at Waterloo system. Various special and optional rules allow the Players to recreate a picture of an historical event." (from the rules folder.}

Cemetery Hill is one of four games included in the Blue & Gray Quadrigame set. The game includes a 17" x 22" three-color map, 100 counters and an Exclusive rules folder. A Standard rules folder, containing rules common to all four games included in the Quadrigame, is also included.

Scale is 400 meters/hex. 1-2 hours per Game Turn. Game mechanics are a simple movement-combat system with rigid zones of control. Sequential Player Turns, retreat and advance after combat are common to these games and surrounding to cut off retreat is a major strategy.

A new concept, "Attack Effectiveness" is introduced in this set of games. Essentially, attacking units that receive an "Attacker Retreat" result in combat are rendered "ineffective" (may not make further attacks, but still defend normally) for the rest of the day. This restriction is removed once a Night turn occurs. This makes "what the heck" type attacks very risky as one's army can be rendered quickly "ineffective" through a series of low-odd attacks.
