The Guns of Gettysburg has been kickstarted. For fans of Napoleon's Triumph and Bonaparte at Marengo, this is a dream come true. But for some uninitiated, the mere fact that the game is being produced and produced well is not enough. (See: Re: The Guns of Gettysburg Kickstarter Now Open!)The fact that stretch goals are a bit weak has caused some consternation amongst the kickstarati. So, I've taken it upon myself to begin development of some ideas for Mercury Games to consider.

Well, let's start with the obvious. It isn't called the Bullets of Gettysburg. So why are they giving real ACW bullets as a stretch goal. Lame. Rifles would be nice, don't you think? But those aren't the guns referred to? Okay, throw in a nice artillery piece!

Ahistorical maybe, but what fun knocking down those lovely maple blocks with this snazzy extra! Take that, Little Round Top!

I can't believe you need to hit a stretch goal to get dice in a wargame. They must think I'm a sucker.

Okay, maybe not a stretch goal. But for some crazy pledge level, they could give some lucky kickstarter-er Bowen's brain! How cool! But only for a short time. Cuz we need him to keep working on STAVKA.

Maple not good enough for your blocks? Gorgeous, heavy mounted map not doing it for you? Hit this stretch goal and we'll make it gold! Solid frickin' gold! I love gold!

A collection of photos, taken from various locations of significance around the battlefield, and facing where the enemy was.

These would also have the location IDs for the corresponding location on the board.

How about this pain-from-surgery game? To help evoke the Civil War battle theme (couldn't find a game called "morphine."
