BROTHERS AT WAR: 1862 Wargame
Quadrigame offers four tactical wargames that exploring civil war brigade command. Each two-player features a full-size, 22x34-inch game map and covering battles from 1862: Antietam, South Mountain, Mill Springs, and Bloody Valverde. 1 hex = 100 yards. 1 turn = 20 minutes. Units are regiments and batteries.
Command rules are simple and abstracted. Combat and all checks are resolved using six-sided dice, in which results of 5-6 mark success, and 1-4 failure. Brigades activate via chit pull, with their constituent units moving and fighting individually. Stacking is limited to two units per hex. Massive 1.5-inch hexes allow two 3/4-inch units to fit side by side. no information is obscured.
Battle Cards introduce an element of uncertainty and excitement to play. Unique off-map displays track every brigade's reserves and casualties. Once a unit's reserves are used up, it becomes exhausted and liable to break.
