A duplicate of the comment form included with every CWEx playtest kit will be provided at the end of this Forum post. This format will allow a member of the playtest group to "copy" and "paste" the Geek Comments into a GeekMail message and should help to save time when creating an evaluation. Please zap me a private GeekMail which includes your responses after the form has been completed.

While over 100 kits have been distributed only a small fraction of the playtest group has listed CWEx as "Owned" in a BGG collection. If you have no objection to advertising your ownership of this prototype please take a minute to add CWEx to your list of games. On the internet -- as on the battlefield -- there is strength in numbers. Thanks!

A handful of free CWEx playtest kits are still available.

Civil War Express -- Geek Comments

"You never get a second chance to make a great first impression."

Please take a few moments to share your initial reaction to CWEx. When you have had enough experience with the game to make a quick appraisal (and that experience level will vary from player to player) please zap me a GeekMail containing your responses. Thank you!


#1: How would describe your previous experience as a wargame player?


#2: What rating would you give the physical quality of the playtest kit?


#3: How long did it take you to set up the game?


#4: How long did it take you to become comfortable with the rules?


#5: How many times did you play CWEx?


#6: Which side (Union or Confederate) did you enjoy playing the most? Why?


#7: Can you describe your impressions of the game’s play balance?


#8: How would you rate CWEx as a potential solitaire game?


#9: Where did you find CWEx drifting away from the historical narrative of the American Civil War? Which unusual strategies did you try?


#10: Why was the game fun? If the game wasn’t fun, why wasn’t it stimulating?

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

I'm proud to list my ownership, because I believe in this game.

btw Pete, I've scheduled a few sessions for this weekend. I'll keep you appraised and I'll certainly post a report.

I will list it as owned and will get comments to you as soon as I can. We have played 1 game, and I want to play a few more before sending comments. Good work!
