This is three games in one. I rarely played the intro game, as it was to basic. The advanced game, takes many days (weeks) to play in real-time. I played the intermediate game to death, with family and friends. Wonderful little gem. There are errata issues (but then again, there were many AH games with this problem). One flaw with the game is that it uses a small map aide with the numerical values representing elevation. It would have been far more useful to have those numbers on the main board. Otherwise, a very fun way to recreate the 3 days at Gettysburg at the brigade level.

Questo è il più grande, bello, incredibile, lunghissimo, complicatissimo, ingiocabile wargame tattico mai fatto.
Puoi sentire la puzza dei piedi di ogni singolo soldato che marcia verso la battaglia da quanto scende nel dettaglio. Sono innamorato di questo gioco che considero una reliquia, ma è impossibile nella modalità avanzata poterlo finire. All'epoca con il mio avversario preferito facemmo uno studio su quanto sarebbe durata una partita, visti i tempi che impiegavamo per vederci e per fare i turni di gioco. Risultato dello studio: 1 ANNO.

Three games in one box. The basic game is too easy; the super advanced game is too tedious; the middle game is just right... and it's the one that's been played the most. Ratings: Basic - 6; Intermediate - 8; Advanced - 5.

Very interesting advanced game system, with many innovative mechanics. Cumbersome in play. However, this game led me to make the connection between boardgames and history books, and so set me on a 30 year journey. It will remain high in my affections as a result.

I like the stacking rules in the Intermediate game, where you are generally restricted to one unit per hex, but can use two to defend against multi-directional attacks. Perfect for the flank positions on your line. The counters alone hooked me on all things Civil War when dad brought this one home in the late 1970s.

Started an intermediate game but never finished. Skip the basic game unless you are playing with a novice wargamer.

Great game board (based on an 1870 survey). The advanced game has good, but not perfect commmand and control and logistics rules. This board with the CWB series rules would be great.

Advanced game needed more time and more development to clean up the rules and cut down the errata. Much is unclear. Criticized also for incorrect brigade frontages (I'm not sure the critics are right-- see Paddy Griffith and others. Some of this has to do with lack of stacking-- more than one brigade in a hex where the one underneath would be considered well behind the top brigade. But what a mess this would make of the map board!). But it got more right than it got wrong. A great leap forward at the time. Seemed impossibly complex in the '70s but not so much now. I'd like to revisit it.

P.S. Now I am. Enjoying it. A bit of nostalgia? My second-favorite Gettysburg game.
P.P.S. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Three levels of complexity make this playable by almost anyone. The high complexity version is bloated, but the medium one is perfect for someone with experience with serious wargames. If not, the intro level game will get you there.
