This game brings to life the most dramatic event in American history, the American Civil War.  The game focuses 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 superior Union strength in men and supply.

Lincoln’s War Civil War game on Kickstarter

March 28th, 2013

A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to fund Lincoln’s War, a historical war game set in the Civil War era.

In Lincoln’s War, the battlefield is an extension of the political arena. More than 150 historical movers and shakers support or oppose Davis and Lincolns’ conduct of the war. Each card’s activation number can goose a general into action, or be banked as political currency (PCs), used to promote worthy commanders, purchase war material, restore confidence or be translated into direct support for commanders in the field. Driving an opponent to 0 PCs may bring on auto-victory, but most games rely on a variety of geographical objectives.

lincolns war in the boxUnique features include an original combat system, seditious characters, immobilization (commander paralysis), the Lincoln Assassination plot, a fresh approach to campaign cards, blockade rules and Confederate commerce raiding. T

he combat system does not employ dice, but does require the player to husband resources in the form of Congressional support (CSPs).

Seditious characters such as Joseph Brown and Zebulon Vance for the Confederates and Fernando Wood and Clement Vallandigham for the Union oppose their administrations. Expect them to rob you of support during the game.

Immobilization tokens or ITs replace damage tokens in the game. ITs reflect not only casualties but hesitation, confusion, recuperation, perhaps even insubordination.
