With the news of Wargame Design Studio (WDS) purchasing JTS (viewtopic.php?f=4&t=22675), they also launched their first new game and it is an ACW one!

Forgotten Campaigns - https://wargameds.com/products/forgotten-campaigns

The game description reads: Forgotten Campaigns is a title unlike the others in the Civil War Battles series, in that it covers a wide range of actions from all theaters of the war. In this 15th installment of the series we have rolled up the actions not covered in other titles, and in many cases actions that the historians have not devoted much attention to either. Fighting will range from frontier actions in New Mexico during 1862 to Mobile Bay in 1865. The Red River campaign of 1864 is included as is the War in Mississippi with Brice's Crossroads and Tupelo. Naval combat plays a prominent role in many actions as well, with coastal actions from Charleston to Baton Rouge and many others.


FEATURES

Forgotten Campaigns includes 115 Scenarios – covering all sizes and situations, including a solo tutorial scenario plus specialized versions for both head to head play and vs. the computer AI.

The master map (293,550 hexes) includes all the significant locations fought over in Forgotten Campaigns.

The order of battle file covers the Union and Confederate forces that participated in the campaign with other formations added in for hypothetical situations.

Campaign and Scenario Editors which allow players to customize the game.

Design notes which cover or include the production of the game, campaign notes and a bibliography that includes the sources used by the designer team to produce this simulation game.

Forgotten Campaigns provides multiple play options including play against the computer AI, Play by E-mail (PBEM), LAN & Internet "live" play as well as two player hot seat.

Val Verde

Sounds great.
My old clunker of a computer is at capacity to the point where I can not download anything new. Fortunately, a new hard drive has been ordered and when it arrives I can begin to fill it with more wargames including 'Forgotten Campaigns'.

A special

<salute!>

to John Ferry for designing this latest installment in the Civil War Battles series. Without his dedication, the game might never have happened.

And never to forget John Tiller

<salute!>

without whom the entire CWB series would surely never have happened.

I have dreamt of a game series like this ever since my boyhood. Thank them two and all for making my dreams come true.

Man, the 'John Ferry' name has been around for a long time. Good to here he is still involved with this series.
