I am feverishly awaiting my copy of this very interesting game. Presently I have the computer version that has no hours assigned to each turn. However, I noted on the reproduction of the map that is on the Geek there is an anomaly on the turn record for July 1st which is in opposition to the turn record for July 2nd.
On the first day of the battle - turns 1 through 11 represent 1 Hr. and 15 minutes. On July 2nd the scale is one turn equals 1.5 hrs.
Can people let me know what the scale is on the finalized boards? Or was this just an early error in a beta version of the map?
This is a game design technique that Jim Dunnigan taught me (and lots of other designers!) that you can change the turn scale to ratchet down the level of activity without any rules. The weather at Gettysburg was hot, broiling even, and over the course of the battle the whole tempo slowed. Thus my turn lengths.
