GETTYSBURG 1863 uses the largest mounted game board Worthington/Old School Wargames has ever made.  The reason this is the largest game board we ever created is because we wanted to use large thick counters with large hexes- 3/4" thick counters with large hexes - which at this scale creates the need for a large game board.  

Scale:  Each hex equals 200-220 yds per hex with 35' - 40' elevation changes.  Each strength point equals 100 men per strength point or 1 to 3 cannons per strength point.  Each turn equals 1 hour.

GETTYSBURG 1863 is Volume IV in the Old School Wargames Civil War Brigade Battle series.  Gamers get to refight the historic and pivotal battle of Gettysburg in 1863 using a large mounted map board, large pieces, and a streamlined set of series rules that is just 8 -12 pages long.  The Battle Booklet will give you historical details, design, notes and 6 scenarios:

  • July 1 - Meeting Engagement
  • July 1 - Take That Hill (Can Ewell take Culp's Hill?) (one map)
  • July 2 - The Fight for the Flanks
  • July 2 - The Fight for Little Round Top (one map)
  • July 3 - Lee's Folly
  • July 1 - July 4 (the full battle with an optional July 4th day for gamers)

The single day scenarios should take between 1 to 3 hours to play with the full battle taking 6 - 10 hours to play.

Special rules for early or late arrival of reinforcements, follow up attacks, new terrain rules for multi level hex changes, a new rout rule, and more!

GETTYSBURG 1863 is easily playable by teams of 3 or more with each player taking command of a corps in either the Union or Confederate armies.
