Gettysburg is now almost ready to go beta.
We are now planning an ETA of end of March to kick off the beta phase for the game. Of course Gettysburg will feature the same level of playability and strategic depth that we are known for, as well as the polish and intuitive interface that made Bulge so exciting to gaming veterans and so welcoming to people who had never played a wargame before.
So if you feel up to the task, keep checking the Slitherine beta area and we will also be posting the news here when we make the beta of Gettysburg available!

Desert Fox has been awarded Wargame of the Year runner up by Pocket Tactics!
“Even with its unfamiliar geography and modified campaign rules, Desert Fox still boasts the accessible core mechanics and careful craftsmanship that have made the Crisis in Command games something special. Mastering those ridges and driers and blasting an opponent out of a sodding minefield were among the year’s best gaming highs – don’t pass it up for fear of a little sand“.
Thanks to Pocket Tactics for the award and to all the fans for making Desert Fox so popular!
