Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyable and educational. Needs better instructions
The game is an excellent brigade level strategy game, and it has a great “boot camp” consisting of multiple scenarios that teach you a new gaming element. The problem is that the instructions are a little lacking, and that may frustrate players that are not used to this sort of game.
Excellent tactical game
Excellent tactical civil war game. Those familiar with hex based strategy games will be right at home. Tiller games have long history in PC world.
Present version lacks head-to-head or internet options.
Needs a tutorial
When I first got this I did not know how to play
