Fort Sumter: The Secession Crisis 1860-1861 Reviewed on The Daily Dope for October 3rd, 2018

I review the two player, card driven historical game Fort Sumter: The Secession Crisis 1860-1861 from GMT Games. Plus news from Greater Than Games, Bundle of Holding, Pinnacle Entertainment, Five24Labs, Fantasy Flight Games and more.

Summary
Fort Sumter is an interesting design and certainly fun to delve into for twenty or thirty minutes a pop. Personally, I believe it will appeal to those who enjoy CDGs but don't have a ton of time to invest. That said, I prefer my card driven historical games to much more epic in scope and a lot less abstracted than Fort Sumter. While the component quality is nice, I found the game board to be a bit on the ugly side and nothing really stands out in the component presentation. The rules and playbook are nicely done as usual from GMT though. All in all a title I found was pretty good but just not in the same league as many of Mr. Herman's other fantastic designs.
