Announcing Yet Another New Game!
So last week I announced the second game in the "Battle Hymn" line of games, "Pea Ridge: Gettysburg of the West." This week I'm announcing the third game in the series and attaching a copy of the map for your review. As with Pea Ridge, this is the computer version of the game, the board game will have a hex grid printed over the map - and yes, it is expected to be published in both forms. Next week I'll share information about a fourth game in the series.
But first a little about Bentonville. It was the last major battle of the war and tragic because the end of the war was in sight and every loss was a man who died, or was maimed, for no good reason. The Confederates launched a surprise attack against one wing of Sherman's army as it was marching across North Carolina. The attack went well, at first, and the better part of two US divisions were destroyed before the attack petered out and US reinforcements arrived. But the battle continued to a second and third day! My game includes scenarios for: Day 1, Day 3, the historical Campaign, and a what if scenario: what if General Sheridan were in charge of the US? It would have been a different battle, that's for sure.
Here's the map, I hope you enjoy it. Although it appears small, it is actually quite large and the areas around the play area will include charts and tracks for the board game.
