In his review on BoardGameGeek, Brendan Whyte first turns a critical eye towards the components and rules and lists their shortcomings. Game play fares better: “…the game is fast and quite fun”. Whyte then goes into comprehensive details covering game mechanics and spares no criticism for the game opponent (AI). His discussion concerning solitaire board games vs solitaire computer games is very interesting.

Bloody Roads South Rules

Bloody Roads South covers the Battle of the Wilderness, May 5th through 7th, 1864. This battle was the beginning of the coordinated campaign which lasted from the spring of ‘64 through the spring of ‘65 which ended the war in a Union victory. A Confederate victory here might unravel the Union master plan and send the Union’s leading general, US Grant, back in disgrace. If Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia fail to do so here, it will be the beginning of the end.
