I wonder if there any wargames that allow you to play the whole civil war.

You could ofcourse buy a game about every battle, but I'm looking for a game that lets you play the whole war and re-write history.

Kind of europe engulfed for the Acw.

I suspect you'll mention house divided,got that, like it.

I wouldn't say The Civil War was unplayable, it is most definitely a long game by which I mean circa twenty hours of play to get you all the way through the war but those twenty hours are twenty hours very well spent! The Civil War is a great game that most certainly allows you to attempt the rewrite of history. Certainly would get my vote....just play it over several sessions... You could even play a session per year of the war to really break it down.

You need a large area that you can leave the game set up in. So unless you have a dedicated gaming room and you only want to play this it's not unplayable. If however you have limited space and (or) time it would not be a good investment.
