New ACW rules system being developed by TooFatLardies


The title, They Couldn’t Hit an Elephant, comes from a quotation attributed to Maj. Gen. John Sedgwick of the Union Army of the Potomac just prior to his death at the hands of distant Confederate sharpshooters during the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House in May 1864. Here is some information from the TFL website

“Great news for those who are looking for a fresh approach to American Civil War gaming, our latest rule set is at the printers and will be published on Wednesday the 3rd of December. Designed for either Divisional or Corps level games these have been written to give an enjoyable game which is also historically accurate in the abilities of troops and commanders. With fifty-two pages of text on high quality paper the rules are presented in staple bound format with a heavy card gloss colour cover. As well as complete rules for the period TCHAE contains lists for armies throughout the period, with commanders, weapons and troop quality covered for all theatres, and three scenarios to get you started.


We are now taking advanced orders of both the pdf and hard copy version, both will be despatched on the day of publication. £12 for the hard copy rules, £7 for pdf to anywhere in the world.”
