  • Civil War boardgames

    Wondering if anyone can help me here. I had at one time two hex-based board games based on the Civil war. One was called "On to Richmond" and dealt with the pens. campaign. The other I can't remember the name but I do know that it had four maps with it. They were Shiloh, South Mtn., Gettysburg, and Chick. (not even going to try the spelling ). I was wondering if anybody out there might know who made or makes it and what the name is. Hopefully if I can get the information then I can look for a new copy on the net. Thanks for all the help.

      I think the game you are describing is called "War of the Rebellion", a Richard Berg Game System published by Decision Games in 1993. Hope this helps.

        War of the Rebellion

        Thanks for the help. I went to Decision's website and looked up that game. I think it sounds the same. Also opened up avenues for other periods in history.

          The other set was an old quad game system originally put out by SPI (Simulations Publications Incorporated, used to publish the Strategy & Tactics magazine) back in the 70's. Not that I remember, of course. But anyway, I recently bought a set of these off of Ebay, just for the nostalgia.

          Not like anyone plays these things anymore.

            Oh people still play them but SPI's Civil War Quad included Antietam instead of South Mountain.

              On To Richmond is part of Avalon Hill's Great Campaigns of the Civil War, now under license to MMP.

                Blue & Gray

                I believe the game you are referring to is SPI's Blue & Gray.
