Campaign Book Description
25 pages; PDF only
It is late June 1863. Lee's army--now larger than ever before--swarms into Maryland and threatens Pennsylvania. At this critical moment, General Hooker is suddenly replaced by the respected but yet untested George Gordon Meade. Can Meade discern Lee's true intentions and stop him?
"A Formidable Invasion" is a free campaign supplement, allowing players to re-fight the pivotal weeks of the Gettysburg campaign. Players maneuver their divisions across a vast theater map with the potential to fight a series of interconnected battles. Our simple rules are only 10 pages, but still include logistics, supply, weather, variable map movement, asymmetrical victory conditions, and historical random events. Did we mention it's free?
Note: This is a campaign supplement only--the main rule book is still required to play the battles.
Theater Map. The map for the Gettysburg campaign is considerably larger than our previous Vicksburg campaign. Instead of dividing this map across multiple pages in the rules PDF, a high-resolution, full-size color copy of the theater map can be downloaded here for printing on larger size paper:
Event Cards. The campaign requires the use of ten event cards, representing random events such as bad weather or new reinforcements. The cards are sized as standard poker cards, which could be slid into plastic protective sleeves if you so choose.

You can also download an image file of the map tokens for re-sizing!
