Battle Cry cover (150th anniversary edition)Battle Cry

The American Civil War may not be all that well known in the UK, but this simple wargame is good fun even without the historical detail. The large box contains sets of models for both players: infantry, cavalry and artillery figures that make up the units for each army blue for the Union, grey for the Confederates, of course.

The solid board provides the base for the large, hexagonal tiles that set out the terrain of each battlefield. There are scenarios for 30 diferent battles in the rulebook, taking players through the war the very first battle, Bull Run, in 1861.

At the heart of the game is the deck of cards, which both enable and limit the players' actions. This is a clever way of reproducing the 'fog of war', ensuring that the battle does not go to plan, despite the players' perfect overview of the battlefield.

This is designer Richard Borg's original game using the basic wargame system that he later adapted for WW2, as Memoir '44, the Ancients and Napoleonics periods in Commands & Colors (I stock Commands & Colors: Napoleonics) and WW1 as The Great War. Battle Cry was re-vamped for 2011, the 150th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War, and this is the edition I have in stock.

For 2 players, aged 12+, playing time 45 minutes: 40.00 (33.33 without tax outside the EU)
