Twilight’s Last Gleaming 2 (TLG2) includes three more battles from the War of 1812: LUNDY'S LANE, CHIPPEWA, & THE THAMES. Low complexity tactical scale game, with 50 guys/SP, 15-60 minutes/turn, 100 yards/hex. Three battle maps on a 34x22" sheet, a rather unusual treatment from S&T lately.
TLG2 presents low-complexity simulations of three important battles fought during the later stages of the War of 1812, when the Americans re-secured their control of the Old Northwest and then attempted to win the war by invading and conquering Canada. TLG2 is a follow-on to the original TLG, which was published in S&T #184 (Mar/Apr 1997) and covered the battles of Bladensburg, North Point and New Orleans.
Each of the three battle games included in TLG2 is a two-player contest. One player commands the American forces, while the other commands the Anglo-Canadian opposition. The American player is generally on the offensive in all three games, but the Anglo-Canadian player will also have ample opportunity for counterattack.
