I have a minor dilemma: Which strategic Civil War game in my collection should I sell? Civil War or For the People(AH)? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

The Civil War is far and away my favorite wargame, as I've said on numerous occasions here on BGG. I'm also on record as saying that I've never been able to get into For the People. All that being said, my response would be: keep them both! One can never have enough strategc ACW games!

Why did you have to go and say that? Now I've got another game on my radar ...

Never play block wargames with a dentist, they have those little mirrors to peek behind the block.

I sold The Civil War when I had the same decision, but I later regreted it. However I do like For The People better. Later I was able to get a copy. If I had to sell one of my CW games I think I would pick The Price of Freedom.

He'll sell one for a quarter?


Other than that joke, I can't further this thread.

I concur with statements above - I can't see why you would sell ANY Civil War game. Both games have their place in any collection.

Well I have 'em both and wouldn't sell either! Unless you need the cash, in which case all things being equal, sell whatever can bring more $$$.

If you don't need to sell, then don't, both are great games.
However, I sold For the People and don't miss it. I would not sell The Civil War. I also like The War for the Union, but it is not without its problems. If a new version of it was coming out I would be very interested in it.

Good Luck!

The AH edition? Yeah, sell that if you can, and get the new one from GMT.
