I wonder...is the original poster from 2004 Samsonite still around, or did he pack it in?

See post #147. He showed up for his annual query about two weeks ago.

Just finished a ftf wif that took 5 months to play.  PBEM might be ok, but it may allow too many games to be going on in my head at one time.

I know someone who was playing 4 Wif campaigns at a time with PBeM and Vassal.

Civil War by Victory Games is excellent as well.



I used to have a copy of this and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a few hundred miles away at a friends house now. We played one epic campaign with the random leader set-up; Stonewall Jackson showed up in Missouri in place of the forgettable Rebel generals over that way and proceeded to drive on Chicago early in the war.

Anyhow, I don't understand this post. Does the game make for a good CyberBoard game, or is there a computerized version out there to play somewhere?

You think Microsoft will still be in existence by that time, and that Windows will still be in use?

I think it's safe to say (without violating the Non-Disclosure Agreement I signed) that we'll have this out on the shelves long before a neural jack (located behind the ear) is the standard computer interface used by the majority of the populace.

There is a Civil War computer game out there. I actually think I have it here somewhere but I have never played it. I have only ever seen one listed on Ebay. I bought it. Let me know if you are interested in it. I'm not using it as I have some local guys who like to play the boardgame version. woohoo!

Why would company buy rights for a game and then just leave it? I haven't heard any news about WiF-Computer Game for ages. Why don't Matrix sell the rights on to somebody who would really do something? WiF is one of the best strategy games in the world, so I think it's a dicgrace to not publish it and keep the fans waiting.


Not many people buy these wargames, for example vs a very popular FPS, so the resources that a company can allocate toward development are very minimal if it plans on seeing any profit (profit, yep, the point of a company).

You are a truly class act Samsonite. Word to the wise you ignorant buffoon - the programmer, Steve, has had major health issues - as you well know from reading other threads. The game release has been delayed due to those health issues. What is more important, a game or someone's life? GET A LIFE.

brian, brian - there is an excellent VASSAL version of Civil War that I have been using. It plays very smooth.

While I'm here I would like to comment on the MWIF project.
I have played WIF since it first came out and had many FtF games. Like the rest of us I was very excited when Matrix first announced the project. Over the years my emotions have ranged from excitement, disappointment, don't care anymore, and now hope. Steve - I'm sorry for your health and I wish you well. You are a "god" in my eyes to take this on.
My opinion is that MATRIX needs to quickly put more resources into the project and get this thing out.
I think we all agree this has been way to long. You may not say it but I know you think it.

Do you mean The Civil War from VG or Civil War from AH?

The good news is that Avalon Hill DID produce a computerised version of the VG Civil War game - you can still find it on Abandonware sites ... google "Home of the Underdogs".
The bad news was that it was in 640 by 480 EGA and was absolutely unplayable. I love Civil War and still have my copy of the game but even I drew the line at the AH computer version

I still have mine too. I also have the several leader variants. This is the 2nd wargame I would love to see converted. But that won't happen in my lifetime.
