Product Description

Replay the first major battle of the American Civil War -- a battle that shattered any hope of a quick war; a battle that set the stage for America's bloodiest conflict.

The 200 different cards accurately portray every general, regiment, battery, and significant terrain present at Bull Run, also called 1st Manassas. The uniforms and the portraits of the generals are historically accurate, providing the civil war buff with a detailed, graphical, order of battle for Bull Run. Special Cards add flavor and excitement to the battle. Dixie Bull Run cards are printed on premium card stock in full-color.

Don't Just Whistle Dixie - Play it!
July 10, 2002

This was Columbia Games first game in a series of three card games based on battles of the American Civil War (the others were Shiloh and Gettysburg respectively).

I feel this is a classic game. The rules are tight and the sequence of play is very clear. A veteran of this game can teach it in less than 15 minutes to a total novice. The cards are quite attractive and evoke a wonderful sense of period. The various cards (all with great historical flavor) include: Infantry, Cavalry, Artillery, Generals, Terrain, and Special cards. The first three catagories are each named after their historical regimental counterparts. The Generals are all based on those leaders at the battle with of course varrying abilities. The Terrain is based on locations around the battle of Bull Run (or First Mannassas to the southerners out there).

The game system allows for huge all out battles using the entire deck or smaller battles using a build point system in which players customize a deck based on an agreed upon point limit (each card has a point value to base this on like some collectible card games).

This game and its cousins define what successful light wargaming is all about - fun battles and period flavor in a quick playing system. Enjoy!
