Longstreet 4 Player Campaign Game 3 AAR
« on: March 12, 2017, 02:23:47 AM »
Hi All!

We completed our 3 game Campaign, the last scenario was the Battle of Codorus Creek.

The game and therefore the Campaign was a resounding victory to the Union, the Campaign result was two victories to one!

The Epic Points for the four players ranged from 11 to 15 with one player scoring two extra from the Campaign Cards (they ended on 14).

This game went down to the wire at the start of turn 12 both sides were in a position to win and players had ample cards in their hands...it went down to the initiative of the turn and that went to the Federal forces.

Brigadier General Gordon's Georgians move forward to destroy the Union Vth Corps left flank anchored in the trees...

Gunners from Green's Battery kept up lively although not very effective fire from their dominant hilltop position all game...

Good stuff!  You guys should totally do a nine game campaign... It is a lot of fun to see how the forces change from the start of the war till the end...

Thanks LordAshram!
This campaign was great, I've played two 9 game 2 player campaigns through to the end and have two others started that have stalled with so many other projects on the go :( I love this format. In fact I find the 'campaign phase' as entertaining as the games themselves! After we finished this everyone was interested in another campaign, but a full 9 games, not sure how long that'll take considering getting the 4 of us together in the right place took 12 months for just a 3 game campaign! I wonder if we play 9 games but just 2 player ones alternating the 4 players through the sides...that may come up with a campaign that's easier to play only needing 2 out of the 4 players available at any time and still gives everyone a go playing...not sure yet...
Cheers!
