Computer Wargaming / Fort Sumter: The Secession Crisis
« Last post by Grim.Reaper on Yesterday at 04:53:29 PM »
I know card game type PC games not everyone's cup of tea, but saw this today and seems interesting for the low price of $9.....

Can you drive the Secessionist into the Fort Sumter trap that gave Lincoln his historic victory? Can you successfully use the issue of States Rights to divide Northern opinion? Fort Sumter let’s you explore this seminal moment in American history in a fast-playing, easy-to-learn game.

The country is on the verge of being torn apart so how will you act? Fort Sumter: The Secession Crisis is set during the events that led to the bombardment of Fort Sumter and the start of the American Civil War. The game takes the side of either a Unionist or Secessionist who must work to preserve the Union or follow the path to dissolve it. Each player uses an area control mechanic to place, move, and remove political capital. The location of political capital determines who controls each of the four crisis dimensions - Political, Secession, Public Opinion, and Armaments. After three rounds of play, the game culminates in a Final Crisis confrontation.

Main Features
CDG (Card Driven Game) system designed by Mark Herman
Civil War Historical setting depicts the actual events of the crisis
Immersive voice over and audio that recreates the sound of that era
Asynchronous 2-player online game play

Fantastic game but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do the tactical battles properly. If there's not a clear objective to accomplish aside from "sink the enemy ships", then I find myself just drifting around trying to find enemies, until I'm told the enemy fleet left and given an inexplicable Major Defeat.

I'm loving the grand strategy layer, and mechanically I enjoy the tactical battles. Maybe I should try the 1920 starting campaign.

I have the first version of this game. I would just go straight at the beginning of the match. MOST of the time, the game has the two fleets on a collision course, or close enough to it.

I ran into a old  friend the other day. Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn on Steam for $5 and I just had to go back and try one more time to get past Bhaal's minions. I'm just a sucker for AD&D.  :dreamer:
