Last week five players in our club sat down to play-test a new campaign system for Altar of Freedom. This game covered three weeks in May 1863, with Grant, Pemberton, and Johnston maneuvering between Vicksburg and Jackson, Mississippi. We put an additional twist on the game by making it a full double-blind. This meant the players would be maneuvering through the Mississippi woods blindly, relying on a GM for scouting reports. Communication between players was also restricted to written notes, delayed by a turn. I think the outcome of the campaign reminded us of one simple truth--fog of war rocks.
