John Tiller Civil War Games

Sun Dec 16, 2018 9:41 pm

I'm looking at Tiller's Civil War games but, before I invest my $40, I'd like some input from those in the know.

I'm especially interested in Antietam or Gettysburg though I'm open to any one of them.

However I'm aware that while all of Tiller's civil war games have scores of scenarios, are there any that have lots of shorter scenarios? I don't have the patience to play 50 turns with hundreds of units on a side.

Thanks for your advice.

Each of the titles have a sampling of small to medium sized scenarios. Additionally they all come with a scenario editor, so you can make anything you want too.

As of yesterday both Antietam and Gettysburg have been significantly updated with new graphics as well. See the main JTS page for new screen shots - http://www.johntillersoftware.com

I have played both Gettysburg and Antietam... I like both of them very much and continue to play both... The updated graphics are a very good improvement...

Bought Campaign Shenandoah based on the review here. Good game. A couple of minor issues, some of the keys for accessing features, such as the manual, do not work. Not too much of an issue as the manual can be accessed through file explorer.

The graphics are good. Unexpectedly, I have prefered playing with the unit symbols showing instead of the unit icons. Probably because you get a better top down view.

I have a difficult time determining combat (defence) factors. I had placed troops behind (stone) fences and on creeks where that attack factor discount was 0%. I would have expected that troops behind a fence would get a defensive bonus. Troops attacking across a stream should receive an attack discount (or units on the defence, a bonus). But, I couldn't determine that. (Pressing F2 does show combat modifications.)

Many many years ago, I had bought Campaign Chickamauga. I mention this because Campaign Shenandoah seems to be based on the same game engine. There may have been some evolutionary improvements (graphics are better) since the original release of Campaign Chickamauga.

As an aside. I am using LINUX as my principle operating system. I do have a dual boot computer. So I will have some opportunities to play turn based simulation games such as Campaign Shenandoah.
