Gettysburg - the full three days using the Clash of Giants System, designed by Ted Racier and published by GMT. This game is from the third module in the series. The first two were WWI titles (published 2002 and 2008) and so it has been interesting to see the system move to the American Civil War.
We get two battles in our box, one Gettysburg (obviously) and the other is 2nd Bull Run, giving one game that has been done many times before and the other that has not received as much attention as it might.
The rest of this post discusses the essential elements of this interesting system and covers an AAR of the Gettysburg game to highlight some of the design features.
