BOBBY LEE - 3rd Edition
American Civil War Block game includes:
* Full color, deluxe mapboard that is 130% larger (25x33-inch) than the original, with ample room to fit 10 blocks in a hex.
* 90 Hardwood blocks, blue and gray. The Order of Battle is similar to that found in earlier editions, but the former NATO symbols have been replaced with period crossed muskets, sabres, and gun barrels and the game includes six extra blocks.
* Two color copies of the rules. Five scenarios are included, one covering the entire war in the east, 1861-65, and one for each year 1861, 1862, 1863, and 1864 that can be played separately or linked together. The third edition rules are a blend of previous 1st and 2nd edition rules.
* Two larger, thicker tactical battle maps. Battles fought on these maps are similar to those found in Napoleon, but have rules to reflect American Civil War battle tactics.
* Four quality dice: two blue and two gray.
The game covers the ACW in the east, focusing on the one hundred miles between the two rival capitals of Washington and Richmond. For four years, the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, commanded by the incomparable Robert E. Lee (known as Bobby Lee to his soldiers) defended these few bloody miles against overwhelming Union strength in men and supply.
The eastern theater saw the campaigns and battles of First Bull Run, Shenandoah Valley, Peninsula, Second Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Wilderness, Petersburg, and Appomattox. You can re-stage all of these battles and campaigns, or devise your own war-winning strategies.
Players maneuver their armies on a map of the Eastern Theater. When enemy armies clash in the same location, a battle is fought. Battles are resolved on tactical boards where clever tactical maneuvers allow skilled players to defeat larger armies.
