To get a feel for the strategic picture that a Volley & Bayonet A House Divided campaign might take, I’ve been playing a few games of the old GDW A House Divided game. I’ve been using the second edition rules and playing the game via Vassal (see http://www.vassalengine.org/). Vassal is a good way to go if you have lots of children and pets that might mess up your game if you played it via the board and counters. While a bit different from the way VnB campaign game might go, playing A House Divided has given me some insight into the campaign. Plus it is a great game in itself. I used to play a lot of board games but sort of quit playing them for reason I can’t remember about 17 years ago (probably when my cat, then a kitten, messed up my 1776 campaign game that I had played for hours).
Here is a picture of my current A House Divided game, it is the start of the Jan/Feb 1864 turn:
