I had read a number of reviews on this game prior to ordering so knew what would be in the box. I am very pleased with the product. It is a very light simulation of the American Civil War, easy to learn and play. No record keeping or measuring movements with rulers etc. Probably not for the devout wargamer, very dependant on die rolls and card selection. Overall a fast, fun, easy to learn and play. The miniatures provided with the game are a nice touch and look quite impressive as they march across the board, much better than cardboard counters. Highly recommended.
