Last Full Measure: The Battle of Gettysburg is a brigade scale game of the Battle.

With only seven pages of rules, it impliments regiments, ranged artillery fire, command, reorganization and revovery, and cavalry charges, on a 33" x 38" map that includes the East Cavalry Field at a 250 yards per hex scale. The are 832 counters, player-aid card, Order of Arrival card, Eliminated units card, and a 16 page rule book that includes 4 scenarios, initial strength chart, and terrain effects chart.

The game is offered as "Print and Play" and is free of charge. Everything needed is downloadable from this page; though you will need to be able to view PDF's, and print in color. The map is in a PDF so it maye be printed in "Poster" mode, or "tiled" on an ordinary printer, or a full-size JPG is provided for plotters that can handle at least a 33 inch print area.

The files are:
  • Scenario Book and unit strength table specific to Gettysburg.
  • Order of Arrival card Complete order of arrival for both US and CS units.
  • Map in a PDF 33" x 38" map at 250 yards per hex. The turn victory point tracks are on the map.
  • Map in a JPG As above, but without the PDF overhead so it can be printed by a plotter that can handle 33+ inches.
