UNION & CONFEDERACY
American Civil War Theme.
Module for the Warp Empires system.
You must use the Warp Empires system to play this game.
North America circa 1860-1865.
Divide each State into several territories.
Indicate Capitals & Major cities.
4 turns per year.
Either side wins automatically if all opposing units are destroyed.
At the end of 1865:
The North Wins if the North is completely unoccupied and union stacks occupy
over 50% of Rebel states, otherwise the South wins.
STACKS & UNITS
Units are also called Divisions.
Stacks are also called Armies.
Leaders are also called Generals.
Each side starts with 10 Divisions in their Capital.
The North starts with the leaders Robert Patterson and McDowell.
The South starts with the leaders Joseph E. Johnson and Beauregard.
Players share a common Action deck.
Stacks without leaders cannot move.
Ships can move into coast spaces and spaces with rivers.
Each Ship (Fleet) Unit can Transport one Division.
Any Move card can also be used for ships.
There are no revenue points, instead:
The North recruits 6 random units per turn.
The South recruits 3 random units per turn.
You cannot recruit more units than you have friendly Capitals under your control.
Recruited units start equally distributed in State Capitals.
After each battle the loser gets a “Demoralized” token and the victor removes a
“Demoralized” token. If one side ever has 10 “Demoralized” tokens it gives up and
the other side automatically wins the war.
Having Washington or Richmond (re)captured is worth 3 tokens each time.
UPKEEP PHASE RULES
Ignore the revenue = units rule.
Isolated (surrounded) stacks lose 10% of their force total in units per month.
Leaders in excess of 2 in a Stack generate only 2 Force each.
Leaders in excess of Divisions generate no Force.
When determining casualties, Divisions are always lost before Leaders.
HISTORICAL WAR RULES PROGRESSION
1963+: Union improvements in weapons technology, industry, experience, and
Leadership give all Union Divisions +1 Force.
1964+: Confederate manpower reserves are used up.
All Confederate Divisions are –1 Force.

WARP EMPIRES RULESET
Generic ruleset for a series of empire building/conquest games.
The map depicts an irregular, interlocked set of territories.
Use chits to represent control markers.
Use chits to represent units.
Units include Leaders & non-leader units.
Players share an action deck.
In some games, each player will have their own action deck.
The action deck cards allow you to move your units.
Most Leader units will be in play.
Others will be mixed into the unit chit pile.
Each player will start with several non-leader units in play.
Starting points of units will be determined by the scenario.
Players take turns. Each turn has 7 phases:
First discard any cards you don't want.
Each player draws 5 action cards.
Max hand size = 7. Discard excess cards.
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it.
Use Action cards to move stacks or units in stacks.
A Fast unit can move 1-3 spaces.
A Medium speed unit can move 1-2 spaces.
A Slow unit can move 1 space.
Units can move into but not through opposing stacks.
Fortifications cannot move (Move = 0).
Your opponent can only look at the top unit of your stacks
When two opposing stacks occupy the same territory there will be a battle.
Each unit has a force value.
Add up the total Force values for each side.
Players may play action cards to increase their force value.
If one stack has a Leader and the other does not, the stack with the
leader gets an additional 5 Force.
The side with the highest force value wins.
The losing stack must retreat one space.
The losing stack loses half of its units. The winner picks the first
unit lost, the loser picks the remainder.
Fortification units in the losing stack are destroyed automatically.
The winning stack loses units with a force equal to at least half the force
total lost by the losing stack. The winner decides which units are lost.
Destroyed units are returned to their chit pile.
Captured leaders are set aside and not returned to the chit pile.
After a battle both sides replenish their hands to 7 cards.
Gain revenue points for every revenue generating territory you control.
Draw 5 random units from the unit chit pile.
Purchase units. A units cost is equal to its Force value.
If you purchased all the drawn units, draw another 1D6 random units.
Revenue may be saved from turn to turn.
Discard unpurchased units back to your unit chit pile.
Units start in any revenue generating territory you control.
Number of Units that automatically receive upkeep = 5 x total Revenue.
Discard excess units.
Example: You generate 10 revenue points per turn...
You may have up to 50 units.
Place a control marker on every revenue generating
territory occupied by one of your units.
Only one control marker per space.
