Games and US Shop Suggestions Wanted

Posted by James (admin) on September 8th, 2013

USFairly soon I will be taking a holiday and visiting a place I’ve wanted to see for some years now: Gettysburg.  (I became interested in the US Civil War after watching the amazing Ken Burns documentary many years ago.)  So, why do I tell you this?  I always like the idea of playing boardgames at the location of the game itself.  If you’ve read this blog for a while, you’ll know I played Alhambra at the real Alhambra (which prompted a friend to play Carcassonne at Carcassonne).

It would be great to play a US Civil War game whilst at one of the battlefields but I’m having trouble finding something appropriate.  (I have Guns of Gettysburg but it doesn’t suit solo play at all).  So, can you recommend a good solo-playing US Civil War game?  (or one that plays okay solo even if not designed to)

Any suggestions of good games shops in Salt Lake City or Denver? (especially ones with games nights to play games at) would be greatly appreciated too.

Any suggestions, greatly appreciated.
