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.

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.

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.

Well I'm impressed. First game really. Wonderful game play! Tense, tactical and plenty of decisions to make. The 'All out' card hmmn not sure on this one I played my first scenario-solo-and lost Pea Ridge to a massive Confederate assault-unable to stop it and I tried real hard (without cheating) The game plays very very well with the cards which stop you from moving everything instead you get cards of a mixture of situation, fate, randomness, luck-basically everything you will find on the battlefields of all wars.

Increased my rating to 10 OK after so many many plays this game surprises a wargamer of minis since the late 60's...ahem...always fun, even in losing, always exciting
Love the new cards in the 150 Anniversary version, but not the figures so much but the map is very cool, some nice rule tweaks. One for the desert Island. The first one.

All figures painted. Just like war ... you can't always do what you want but if you try real hard you'll do what you need. I enjoy setting this game up, the play itself, its short playing time, and especially, adapting to the opportunities and challenges presented.

Of the hundreds of games I own, or have owned, Battle Cry is one of the few that I have played over and over and over again.

This game was the beginning of my love affair with the Commands and Colors system, in all its permutations.

Have at least 3 copies of this game I know of, two jammed into one box. Bought extra sets to make "epic" boards even before they started doing that with other games like M44 and C&C:A. This is a super beer & pretzel game, perfect in simplicity but engaging in strategy and hand management.

A light and quick game (some setup time involved) fun and interesting. Heavy luck element in both cards and dice rolls but still interesting to try and work with the resources you have (men and cards) and the luck element. Has many scenrarios and also campaigns which I haven't tried yet but could be fun.

Great introductory game that has excellent replayability. Use of cards to dictate possibilities harkens back to Up Front in its "fog of war". Why Hasbro discontinued this game is unfathomable. Please reconsider bringing back this classic.
