David Docktor has been putting up some amazingly good AARs about the tourney scenarios in these games:
www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/2367654/mir...ysburg-roads-gettysb

These scenarios are just long enough to be interesting. I still think the game is made for long campaigns but it just isn't realistic unless you have a head to head player and a separate game room or drop surface in your table.

I almost got out one of my GCACW games out this evening and set it up even though I never would get a scenario in time to get the game done.

Got all of Roads to Gettysburg and Atlanta is Ours clipped, took 2 straight days and I can barely flex my hand at this point. Set up one of the 1 turn scenarios from Atlanta is Ours (Resaca), forgot what a cool package it is.

This is one of the better one turn scenarios (Resaca):



Games like this make me want to spend thousands of dollars on a gaming table with a drop surface, it would let me play the long scenarios and even a campaign more easily.

Played a longer scenario, Kennesaw Mountain. God it is fucking hard to attack as the Union in this game with lower tactical values.
