Posted on May 21st, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

While Black Powder allows for gaming the American Civil War (ACW for short), this nearly 200 page expansion adds far more detail into it.With the ACW always having been my main “historical gaming intrest”, this was a tome I just needed to have for the …
