The House Divided

Two cracking games of the “House Divided” this afternoon. This excellent ACW board game was published in 1981 by GDW and is a strategic view of the events. The Confederates won both games. Several players at the club can play this and will gladly put on a game for those interested.

The Boardgame geek review says “the game depicts the war between North and South from the First Battle of Bull Run (or Manassas Junction) to Lee’s surrender at Appomattox Courthouse – or Grant’s surrender at Harrisburg… Each player leads one of these two nations and makes the strategic decisions which determine the outcome of the war.

The game board represents the United States, north and south and from the Atlantic coast to just west of the Mississippi. […] The play map contains a number of boxes, each representing a city, town or locations important to the war. These boxes are connected by transportation lines – blue for rivers, tan for roads and black for railroads – which provide the paths to victory or defeat.”
