Using a Board game to run a Miniature Wargame Campaign

Hi all,

Well after Fridays crazy Terriorist Attack I have been working on prepairing more Baccus 6mm Union Infantry to be painted up so we can play a few more games of Alter of Freedom. 

I am also working on setting up a campaign for the American Civil War and I am planning to use the Columbia Games board game, Bobby Lee as the engine that runs the capaing.

I took a picture of the game board so I can use it electronically.

Have any of you used a board game to run a campaign?

I hope to get some recomendations on how to run such a thing without killing the players with paperwork or myself...

Well have a good week.


  1. I have thought about this often but only tackled it once. I used a boardgame on the French and Indian War to generate battles for my table top miniatures gaming. I thought it worked well.

  2. Good idea. I know that one of our club ECW campaigns used a similar approach.
