Play a series of games recreating the decisive battles during the American Civil War (1861-65) using an introductory war game called "Battle Cry." Battle Cry is an easy-to-learn board game in which players use command cards to activate infantry, cavalry and artillery for movement and combat. Dice are used to resolve combat, and the game includes lots of cool plastic figures set up on a modular board with variable terrain. This course is suitable for beginning gamers who are also interested in history. Each day in the course will feature a different battle from this critical time in American history. Students will also learn about the historical context surrounding each battle while getting immersed in the history of the era.
