Hi Guys,
We played our first Epic-size, Battle Cry scenario this past weekend on a new mat I made for this 3D-conversion, which is over 6 ft. in length, and I think helps ramp up the joy of playing this already fun, easy to play Commands & Colors game. The scenario was based on the battle of Antietam, and we used a dice-roll activation system (to enable each of the 6-players a chance to order their commands each turn), and also a chance for participants to earn Tactics cards (these cards being created by BGG member Michael Dippel, and available here onsite):

Here's a few photos from the action:



Below, Hooker's Corps has been attempting to make headway on the northern sector of the battle



Sumner's command in the center having a tough go of it



In the south, Burnside's bridge crossing will prove to be as bloody as ever



I'll be doing a few tweaks to the scenario, and running the game again in a few weeks. Hope you like what you've seen.
