Could anyone advise of an ACW game with a high level strategic map that would work well with an area of 900 -1000 hexes.

Many thanks

Jim

Sounds like a half-mapper (ie approx 17"x22") or else a full one-mapper that has a lot of charts and tables and less map area.

I presume you want full coast-to-coast, for doing the somewhat speculative New Mexico - California campaign, or do you just want West to somewhere in the midst of Texas and Kansas?

The only strategic level ACW hex-and-counter game of which I am aware is the old classic Victory Games' The Civil War.



This is the right hex area, but is not coast-to-coast and does not show New York City or Chicago. But I would say for all real intents this still well covers the ACW strategic scope.

The Far West Map (included in the game The Civil War that has the pictured map) extends the area of interest.

Thanks guys I was trawling through the various games and images myself and this one had looked the most likely that I had come across to date.

It would take a little imagination, but you could also use or adapt...

Invasion: America
(or rather part of it - you certainly do not need Canada and Mexico)

I also thought of SS Amerika...

(which looks very much the same as I:A in terms of map-scale)

or Dixie...


or Minuteman: The Second American Revolution...


or After the Holocaust...


But I guess I am showing my age again. Thanks for inspiring the time trip. Some of those games were kinda duds in my book, but some were classics.

Thanks John for giving me a no of options to consider I really appreciate it.We are probably of the same vintage (although I reckon I have the mileage on you!).I am just looking at something which may or may not work trying to combine a strategic game with some miniatures. Jim

Check out War Between The States (second edition) by Decision Games. Not sure how many hexes it has. Probably more than the 1000 your looking for. But it's a monster map. Or to be more accurate, three maps together.

Good one. Looks like a 3-mapper though so about 5000 hexes?
