Description

Longstreet's Disaster is a solitaire game that recreates Pickett's Charge during the Battle of Gettysburg, with the player assuming the role of the Confederates. The game uses a modified Cold Harbor (Panzerschreck #3) system of play. Basically, after the CSA bombardment phase each turn, the player advances his troops against Union cannon and rifle fire and attempts to occupy one of the victory hexes on Cemetery Ridge. Nine CSA brigades (each with six steps) are arrayed against eight USA brigades. If you can occupy one of the victory hexes by the end of turn 8, you have managed to nudge the outcome of the entire battle back into the "undecided" category. But achieving victory is not easy, and you are bound to take massive casualties. How many Confederate brigades would it have taken to breach the Union line? The game system used is easy (and bloody) and plays quickly, enabling you to replay the events of that July afternoon on your table top.

Complexity: Low. Solitaire Suitability: Very High. Set Up Time: 5 minutes. Playing Time: 30 minutes.
