Dimitri Rotov on Gary Grigsby’s War Between the States

by Brett Schulte on July 5, 2008 · 0 comments

Looking back over the last week or two worth of Civil War blog posts, I noticed an extremely interesting one by Dimitri Rotov over at Civil War Bookshelf discussing how game designer Gary Grigsby does not see the Civil War through a “Centennial” lens.  As someone who is always looking into how well Civil War games are able to produce historically realistic results, I thought Dimitri took things a step further by delving into how a game handles competing ideas of what is or should be the orthodoix view on the Civil War.  If you are interested in Gary Grigsby’s War Between the States or Civil War gaming in general, this is a must read.
