Blue & Gray Gamebox

Simple, hex-and-counter, introductory wargame. Some of the scenarios do a good job of representing civil war tactics.

Players maneuver colorful counters representing infantry, cavalry and artillery units that actually fought at each battle. Four full color maps depict the actual battle sites with a background grid overlay that regulates deployment, movement and combat. The updated rules booklet presents the player with playing rules and a short history of each battle. Recreate America's epic struggle of brother against brother.
