Welcome to our Civil War gaming blog! Feel free to stay awhile! We have posted photos of our wargames we ran, as well as pictures of leading leading war dioramas and vignettes from across the country.
The Johnny Reb Gaming Society had its genesis as a global organization of miniature wargamers who recreate historical military conflicts from the Civil War using regimental-level gaming rules such as Johnny Reb 3, Honor & Glory, Regimental Fire & Fury, American BattleLines, Mr. Lincoln’s War, Civil War Commander II, Rally Round the Flag, and many others.
The Johnny Reb Gaming Society existed to promote the usage and enjoyment of miniature wargaming of clubs and individuals who enjoy regimental-level Civil War miniature wargaming. Through education, cooperative sharing of scenarios and gaming tips, and social interaction at gaming conventions, the society will actively seek to expand the use of these rules for private and public wargaming.
Each quarter from 2003-2013 we published an informal newsletter (CHARGE!) with original regimental-level wargaming scenarios (suitable for other rules sets as well as Johnny Reb), reprints or updates of classic older scenarios (many of which had first appeared in The Zouave magazine), historical articles on the Civil War by leading authors, gaming-related articles, terrain making tips, painting and flag guides, Civil War research papers, and rules-specific articles. This newsletter typically contained at least two scenarios in each issue. Publication ceased in the summer of 2013.
