In Magnificent Style is a solitaire game depicting the final desperate Confederate attack on July 3, 1863 at the Battle of Gettysburg. You command the Confederate brigades that made Pickett's Charge.

In Magnificent Style is a solitaire game depicting the final desperate Confederate attack on July 3, 1863 at the Battle of Gettysburg. You command the Confederate brigades that made Pickett's Charge. General Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia has been fighting General Meade’s Army of the Potomac for two brutal days at Gettysburg. Lee’s army has garnered some successes but could not achieve that decisive break through of the Union lines. On the third day Lee, despite resistance from his trusted “Old Warhorse” General Longstreet, decided on a massive assault against what he deemed to be the weak spot in the Union battle line. This dramatic, infamous assault is popularly known as Pickett’s Charge.

The game system features some new takes on the traditional “push-your-luck” mechanic and applies them to a war game setting. As General Longstreet, you must decide how quickly to press your advancing troops across the deadly open ground before allowing the men to regroup themselves for another bound. But time is not on your side and the longer your stalwart soldiers remain in this maelstrom of enemy fire, the more dangerous it becomes and the less likely they will arrive with the verve and numbers required to carry the day. Good luck!

    Excellent jeu. C'est du push your luck bien thématisé. Quand les regles sont assimilees (et elles sont simples) la partie dure 1h.

    Wargame en solitaire très dynamique avec pas mal de rebondissements dus à la fréquence de cartes d'événements et aux résultats variés des jets de dés (jets d'action). Sentiment d'attrition progressif bien ressenti en avançant vos brigades confédérées vers la ligne de défense nordiste. Quelques choix tactiques intéressants (ordre d'activation des brigades, avancer par brigade ou en ligne de bataille de plusieurs brigades, positionnement et effets des généraux, affectation des réserves...) même si le moteur de jeu est très dépendant des jets de dés (souci de nombreux systèmes de jeu en solitaire d'ailleurs). Déconseillé donc aux aléaphobes, conseillé aux joueurs qui aiment gérer les surprises et avoir des parties variées, dynamiques, et finalement assez courtes (de 1h30 à 2h30 selon la maîtrise des règles). Matériel magnifique, règles claires dans l'ensemble même si le livret aurait nécessité une maquette plus aérée et moins austère, avec plus de graphismes et d'exemples. Conditions de victoire variables allant de 1 (Catastrophe) à 10 (Incredible victory!), Longstreet se positionnant "historiquement" à 3 (major defeat). Il sera assez facile de faire mieux que le général sudiste mais difficile d'envisager une victoire décisive, à moins d'avoir beaucoup de chance aux dés. J'aurais donné un 5 si la dépendance aux jets de dés avait été un peu moins forte. Mais ce wargame en solitaire reste une très belle surprise, sur un thème évocateur à souhait !
