Re: The best solitaire option from the Blue & Gray series
I used this game to teach new wargamers, the simple Confederate choices made their play easier as they saw how the rules work together. It is also easy to 'handicap' the game by giving the Union less, or more, units to move each turn.

Re: The best solitaire option from the Blue & Gray series
Another excellent review, Pete - I see a game room strewn with small Civil War games in my magic mirror (I still haven't completely cleared up my 4th of July week games). blush

I always found this game and Antietam very frustrating to play with the unit movement restrictions. I wasn't until later when I was working on my degree and reading up on these battles that they made sense. Strangely enough the feature, along with the manageable size and simple rules, is what makes these both good solitaire games.cool

What's next? You're getting me primed to play.
