Description Edit | History

Microbadges: mb mb mb


Tattered Flags is a series of Kriegspiel-style historical miniatures/board game depicting battles of the American Civil War (1861-1865). In this first game in the series, each player controls a Union or Confederate force at the Battle of Gettysburg, struggling for The Wheatfield on July 2nd, 1863. Gettysburg: The Wheatfield was carefully crafted to introduce players to system basics of organization, events, maneuver, fire and morale, with future games in this series promising to expand the detail and accuracy of the Tattered Flags system.

Since many players do not have the time, funds or eyesight to paint armies of miniature figures, Tattered Flags comes with colorful cardboard counters, called “Stands” (in the vernacular of miniatures gaming). These games also use a printed battlefield game map in lieu of miniature trees, hills, buildings, etc. Feel free to substitute miniature figures if desired!

There are three scenarios included in Gettysburg: The Wheatfield, each with its own Order of Battle (OOB), Special Rules, Turn Length and Victory Condition. The first scenario is introductory in complexity and is used when someone is first learning and playing the game. The second scenario is the historical scenario depicting the actual fighting that occurred during the afternoon of July 2nd. The final scenario is a dramatic, “what-if” meeting engagement battle.

Game Data:
Complexity: 5 on a 9 scale
Solitaire Suitability: 7 on a 9 scale
Scale: 1 inch = 50 yards; each Stand is approximately 150 men or 3-4 cannon; each turn represents a variable amount of time, perhaps 15 to 20 minutes or so

7 Example of Play - playtest version
This is a six-turn comprehensive example of play of the playtest version of GTW. This will give a good idea on the gameplay flow, but please be aware that some rules were changed in the final production copy of the game (most noticeably in the Morale Test Table).
