Rod, you’ve told us how much space you have (plenty!) but not how long you want your games to last. Are you looking for a swift 3-hour or so evening game? Or a leisurely all-dayer?

Vincent has kindly mentioned BBB, which is geared to fitting an entire battle into a 3- or 4-hour club night including set-up and take-down, on a 6’x4′ table. He is too modest to mention that he himself has written several excellent scenarios for ACW actions such as 1st Bull Run, Champion Hill, Stones River etc – all freely available from the BBB files on Groups.io.


Best of luck with finding the ruleset that suits you.


Bloody Big BATTLES!
