Before Richard Borg’s Memoir ’44 (Days of Wonder), Command & Colors (GMT), or Battle Lore (Fantasy Flight), there was Battle Cry. Borg created Battle Cry for Avalon Hill back in 2000, introducing the appealing and accessible system for military gaming that would power those later designs.
Battle Cry has been unavailable for a few years, but Hasbro/Wizards of the Coast are republishing it later this month. That’s really good news for gamers. And if you don’t know what Battle Cry is, just think of this: Memoir ’44 … set in the Civil War. MSRP is $60.
