SOWGB - The Research Paper? PDF Print E-mail

Every once in a while we search the net to see what's being said about the game. During a recent search we were pleasantly surprised to find a research paper written by Mark Mullen at George Washington University. It's cool because he gets it! He knows why we make the game the way we do and you all play. He understands the dedication to creating a realistic experience. Since it's public on the net, I guess it's safe to share:

United States Army College Selects Scourge of War: Gettysburg for Senior Officer Training

In a testament to the battlefield realism, historical accuracy and quality user experience of the game, the United States Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas has chosen Scourge of War: Gettysburg for inclusion in its suite of classroom training simulations. The Army is using the game as part of its professional education program for developing the next generation of senior Army leaders.

Scourge of War: Gettysburg is being used in two different Fort Leavenworth classes. The first class trains Simulation Operations Officers and will use computer driven simulations such as Scourge of War: Gettysburg in combination with classic map, rulebook and dice war games the Army traditionally uses.

The second Mission Command class trains students in how to exercise command and control on the battlefield. This class will use Scourge of War: Gettysburg to simulate key action on the first day of the three day Gettysburg battle, including a multi-user Rapid Decision and Synchronization Process. They will use a scenario that puts the student in the command position of Union General John Buford or Confederate General Henry Heth, thus imposing the unforgiving real time pressure of battlefield command.

The US Army Command and General Staff College educates and develops leaders for full spectrum joint, interagency and multinational operations; acts as lead agent for the Army’s leader development program; and advances the art and science of the profession of arms in support of Army operational requirements.

Antietam Released! PDF Print E-mail



We're a few days early, but we knew that a lot of people are taking off and wanted to get started. So we finished up the patch this morning and got the final Antietam Installer finished.

GET THE PATCH! You need the patch to play the map pack because we added some new features that the map pack is using.
Scourge of War - Gettysburg Patch 1.4

The map pack is available in both of our download stores, but here's a link to get you there fast:
Scourge of War Store

Install the patch, install the map pack, then you'll find the new stuff on the Additional Battles Screen. The team here has done an amazing job of recreating the Battle of Antietam. There's something for everyone, some easy ones, hard ones, and even an 11 hour one if you want to play the entire battle. Lots of new maps and scenarios, more content than the original game. This one's a winner!
