Rising Tides Entertainment Announces Tides of War: Gettysburg (C)

"The App and Rotating Miniatures Bring Unparalleled Military Realism to This Superb Game" - Maj. Gen. Alan Salisbury, USA (Ret.)

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2012) - Rising Tides Entertainment, Inc. has created Tides of War: Gettysburg ©, a board game with a smartphone/computer app and 172 pewter miniatures. The game is in the final three days of its launch on Kickstarter at:

Signed, numbered, limited edition Keith Rocco prints of actions at Cemetery Hill, Little Round Top and Devil's Den are among the launch incentives.

Professional officers, combat veterans, historians, and software gaming experts developed this breakthrough, militarily realistic, patent-pending App, Board & Miniatures Game. Innovative rules include "merging" of depleted units, prisoners, and the multi-move Move that allows a defender to reinforce or retreat before combat commences.

The smartphone/computer app cuts playing time in half, relieving players from spending hours debating terrain and angle-of-attack advantages, calculating odds, throwing dice, or consulting combat results tables.

Played on an oversized metal-and-wood game board, 172 real-life collectible pewter unit-commanders enhance realism by rotating on counters as casualties are taken. No longer will whole units be eliminated in a single action.
