Even when the game relies too much on luck, there are some tweaks that reduce that and make it a perfect 10.

Thsi game deserves all the accolades its gets. It has brought wargaming back into the playing zone of German games players. Excellent production, rules, excitement level, feel, simulation, fun, value, replayability, options, variations.

It's hard to beat this game for just flat-out fun. Currently the only game I have two copies of. Thinking of picking up more!

Perfect. Easy to learn, quick to play, lots of strategy, lots of luck, great components. Suspend your need for hyper-realism and have fun with a war game for a change.

My favorite Beer & Pretzels game ever! Lots of people don't like the luck factor even though some strategy is involved, but if you love to calculate odds and then roll the dice in war games, battle cry is for you!

A light and quick game, but a lot of fun and interesting. Heavy luck element, but if you know that you could lose because of factors beyond your control (like in real life really), such as not having the right cards, then you won't take to too seriously and just get on and enjoy it. Interesting to try and work with the resources you have (men and cards).

I love all the possibilities of this game, creating new hexes, scenarios, themes, rule variants etc.
Right now I'm considering changing the whole theme into a space opera scenario, for some reason the idea of creating planet hexes excites me, God complex maybe?
Removing the All Out Offensive cards does help mitigate the luck factor.

Superb game! Miniatures, adjustable terrain, a bunch of scenarios, and card-driven mechanics - all make for an extremely fun gaming experience. Diehards for realism don't care for it, but if you are in the market for a "light" game covering American Civil War battles you can't go wrong with Battle Cry. Despite its simplicity, gives players a lot of flavor, with your infantry assaulting the enemy line, artillery pounding away and cavalry raiding and flanking your opponent's troops.

The chaos of the cards limiting your control over your army beautifully mimics the breakdown in communication on the Civil War battlefield. The frustrating die rolls are perfectly in line with the unpredictable effectiveness of the weapons (and troops) in Civil War battles. A perfect simulation? No, not even close. 45 minutes of pure fun with mechanics that effectively convey the theme? Yes. This game is a masterpiece.

Richard Borg is a genius. He has come up with an incredible game that has so much stratgey and yet is not overly complicated!

Excellent game. You can break this out & play a few scenarios & have a great time battling it out. It's on the lighter end of war games, & that's just what you're looking for at times. We have all the extra scenarios from the internet along with new tiles & pieces.

I own all of Borg's Commands & Colors games and all the expansions. And I will probably buy all the future games and expansions. For me the system is almost perfect, simple rules, lots of conflict. Whether I play Battle Cry, Memoir '44, Ancients, or BattleLore is usually based on whether I feel like playing the Civil War, World War II, Ancients, or Fantasy.

Lovely American civil war game - As with Memoir I'd say this is a must-have 2 player strategy game. You can concentrate on playing instead of the rules because they are quick to learn. Nice pieces and board and a decent playing time of about 45 minutes per game.
