TOCWOC – A Civil War Blog

March 24, 2008: After Action Reports Contest

Note: A Winner Has Been Announced and This Contest Is Now Closed!!!!

After obtaining an extra copy of HPS Simulations’ Campaign Chickamauga, TOCWOC has decided to hold a wargaming contest. Civil War wargamers are encouraged to submit After Action Reports from their favorite Civil War game. We encourage gamers to send in AARs from a wide variety of game types, including but not limited to computer games, board games, and miniatures. To see which games we would most prefer, refer to the Wargaming Contests page linked to in upper left hand corner of this page.

Contest Rules: Wargamers should post a comment at the bottom of this page, making sure to include your email address in the comments form, to indicate their interest in joining the contest. Once this has been completed, an email will be sent with details concerning the format of the AAR, how to send photos, and other items as needed. Once you receive this email, feel free to continue to submit as many entries as you desire by the April 30, 2008 deadline. Contest participants submitting entries agree to allow said entries to be posted on TOCWOC at a future date with editing if necessary. One (1) winner will be selected from all submissions and will be announced on Monday, May 5, 2008.

Prizes: A free copy of HPS’ Campaign Chickamauga will be mailed to the winner of the After Action Reports contest. In addition, the winner and other entrants may be asked to participate as TOCWOC bloggers in the future.

Contest Submission Window: March 24, 2008 through 11:59 PM CT on April 30, 2008

Final Winner Announcement: Monday, May 5, 2008

Contest Winner: Pat Hirtle for his Board of Inquiry AAR using Johnny Reb II! The official announcement is up on TOCWOC’s main page.

    I’m in the middle of an AACW campaign right now, and I can submit what I have, although the campaign is far from over
