Cedar Mountain (Video Game Review)

cover

 

 

American Civil War battle of the same name. ‘Stonewall’ Jackson against political general Nathaniel Banks as a prelude to Bull Run, August 9, 1862. A meeting engagement, Banks launches a spoiling attack against a superior CSA force and then has to conduct a fighting withdrawal to survive. The game uses the Great Battles of the American Civil War system. Victory is determined by capturing and holding geographical objectives and killing units.

Each Game-Turn represents 30 minutes of real time, and each hex covers about 125 yards from hex side to hex side. Each Strength Point is the equivalent of 100 men or 1 gun.

In this episode of The Long View, I’m pleased to be joined once again by Martin Griffiths, qwertymartin on bgg, as we discuss the Reiner Knizia classic, Ra. Along the way, Martin and I discuss the innovative game mechanics, the theme, and why this game has been a mainstay of the hobby for so long.

As a new feature, Martin and I begin the episode with a general discussion of games released in 2009. In this special look back, we give an overview of our impressions of game such as Smallworld, Steam, The Resistance and more!
