Last weekend I played my first game of my dads latest rule set addition for ACW , Pickets Charge. I must admit I was alittle daunted at first as we have been juggling around with a fair few rule sets for this period and there was a feeling of 'oh no not again' and after my dad briefly ran through the rules it felt a lot to take in. However these fears were quickly dismissed after a few turns and I quickly adapted to the rules and the game mechanics, which I have to say are very very good. The game flowed at a decent pace with just the odd reference to the rules as my dad himself is just getting to grips with them, even by the last hour of the game I was already remembering scores required on the dice to hit and factors etc.
