Assault at Cold Harbor

Watermarked PDF

Assault at Cold Harbor is a solitaire design that simulates part of the Union assault taking place at the Battle of Cold Harbor in Virginia on June 3, 1864, during the American Civil War.  It is a solitaire design, where the player controls the Union forces, and the game system controls the Confederate forces.  The object of the game is for the player to initiate a breakthrough in Kershaw’s portion of the Confederate defensive line.  In game terms, this means controlling one or more victory hexes by the end of the game.

Assault at Cold Harbor comes with a small map, set of unit counters, and digest-sized rule folder. 

As happened in the actual battle, your Union troops stand against long odds in this little game.  This solitaire game that focuses on Kershaw’s portion of the line, and ends at the end of eight turns, or until the Federals have uncontested control of at least one victory hex. As you peer out toward the enemy from your own position, there is but a single objective:  pierce the Confederate line and leave it to those following to facilitate a breakthrough.  One observation will stand out from setting up and playing this game:  frontal assaults like this were very costly, and invited slaughter on a terrible scale. Can you pull off a victory?  

Designed by Gary Graber.  Published by Minden Games, and now available in PDF format.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
