Last week we played a face-to-face boardgame covering the first day of the Gettysburg battle. It uses a chit pull system to activate the various divisional sized commands and so there is the potential for this battle, that started as a meeting engagement, to open up new opportunities and situations each time it is played.
The boardgame is from Volume 1 of Battle Hymn by Compass Games and includes the battles of Gettysburg and Pea Ridge.
A few turns into the game, I took a photograph of a local situation occurring on the reverse slope of Seminary Ridge, with a view to playing it out as a figures game later, which is what this post will now concentrate on.
The first part of the action has now been played out as a Pocket Armies battle, using a 4’ x 3’ space, six or seven units per side with Black Powder rules and a dip into the Glory Hallelujah ACW supplement from Warlord Games.
