Hold the Line: The American Civil War is a block game that uses modified rules from the Hold the Line game system. Infantry, artillery, cavalry, leaders, and even gunboats are deployed on the game board allowing players to refight great battles from the American Civil War.
The game comes with a game board and terrain tiles so you can set up and play one of the 12 included scenarios or create your own.
Each turn players receive a fixed number of action points based on the historical leaders. They then roll a die which adds a random number of action points. During each of their turns they spend these action points to move, fire, close combat, or rally their units, all with the goal of eliminating enemy units and/or capturing terrain objectives leading them to victory.
