BATTLE ABOVE THE CLOUDS

MMP

 

Introduzione

Questo mese "una vera prova sul campo"; il nostro Socio Davide ha giocato in solitario uno scenario sull'ultimo titolo della serie Great Campaigns of the American Civil War Series (abbreviato GCACW), che dal 1992 ha visto la pubblicazione di 8 volumi, inizialmente da parte della mitica Avalon Hill e oggi della MMP:http://www.multimanpublishing.com/Products/tabid/58/CategoryID/21/Default.aspx . 

Ideata da J. Balkosky, la serie tratta la guerra civile americana a livello di campagne e, anche se ormai datata, è sempre bellissima da giocare.

 

(Dal sito della MMP)

Battle Above the Clouds is the 8th game in the award-winning Great Campaigns of the American Civil War (GCACW) series. This is the first game covering a western theater campaign and will serve as the core area for a series of maps covering the entire corridor from Nashville, Tennessee to Atlanta, Georgia. The game includes both the Chickamauga campaign of August/September, 1863 and the Chattanooga campaign of October/November of the same year.

Battle Above the Clouds uses the same GCACW Standard Basic Game Rules that were first published in MMP's Skirmisher magazine and Grant Takes Command. The game scale remains unchanged for the western campaigns, although two new terrain types (hills and ridges) have been added to properly represent the rugged terrain that dominates the Chattanooga area.

Battle Above the Clouds includes a wide variety of engagements in the Basic Game scenarios. The seven actions include two introductory scenarios, a cavalry raid, a fighting withdrawal, a series of operational maneuvers through mountainous terrain, and two large battles:
-McLemore’s Cove (4 turns, September 10-13, 1863)
-Crossing Chickamauga Creek (1 turn, September 18, 1863)
-The Battle of Chickamauga (3 turns, September 18-20, 1863)
-Wheeler’s Raid (8 turns, September 29-October 6, 1863)
-Opening the Cracker Line (1 turn, October 28, 1863)
-Lookout Mountain & Missionary Ridge (2 turns, November 24-25, 1863)
-Ringgold Gap (2 turns, November 26-27, 1863)

The two Advanced Game scenarios cover both major periods of campaigning in the region:
-The Chickamauga Campaign (32 turns, August 29- September 29, 1863)
-The Siege of Chattanooga (40 turns, October 28-December 6, 1863)

The Advanced Game rule set has also been standardized so players will be able to quickly move to new campaigns in the series.
