Battle Cry Description:

  • Richard Borg of Florida designed Battle Cry, fast moving, entertaining boardgame recreating famous battles of the U.S. Civil War.  Its simple yet clever system makes this game appealing to the entire family.  The game was released in 2000 by Avalon Hill, a division of Hasbro.Battle Cry
  • The US Civil War made easy!  Perhaps that’s stating it too plainly but the emphasis here is on fun rather than history. Terrain tiles allow you to create plenty of different maps and scenarios on which to recreate portions of Civil War battles. There’s plenty of dice rolling and the battles can often be one-sided but the game is so enjoyable that you can easily play twice, switching sides
  • This is a great 2 players strategy board game for for those passionate about American Civil War.
  • Winner of the 2001 International Gamers Award for General Strategy in the 2-Player category.
