Hey guys! Gettysburg: The Wheatfield is now done with playtesting and we're moving into the final stages. If you click on the link above and move halfway down the page, you'll see an update of our progress and samples of some of the new artwork by Mike Smith. I think that this moves the game into a whole new dimension and I'm very excited about Mike's work. Let me know what you think. Thanks! Hermann

You know, when I first saw the initial description of this game on VPG's site, I thought, "well, that's nice." But the more I read the more interested I get. Now I discover that the counters are going to look like this:





Not only that, but the map we've been seeing (and thinking, "oooh, now that's cool") is only the playtest map!

The Wheatfield is moving towards the top of my "must buy" list.

Hi Tom and thanks for the kind words! We are very happy with the way this game has developed and you're right - these counters on Rick Barber's map are going to rock. By the way, the game plays well too . Thanks for your interest and spread the word. We should have this good-to-go by August. Hermann

I posted a couple of new images to the gallery. There's a display of all the new markers and a picture of some of the new units on the game map. Enjoy! Hermann

This game looks sweet! This may very well be my first ACW game. When do you see it making the shelves??

Whoops - I just answered your other post, Ski . The game should be good-to-go by August. We're just finishing up the new graphics and fine-tuning the rules. I think that G:TW would make a great first ACW game for you. There are only 12 pages of rules and it represents the introductory game to what hopefully will be a long series of games. With each expansion, we'll add a few more rules and components and players can grow into the system. We're really looking to serve as the "common ground" between boardgaming and miniatures gaming. Thanks for your interest and keep looking for updates either here or at the Victory Point Games website. Good gaming! Hermann
