I work for a company that creates and distributes all of the specialty editions of MONOPOLY (sports teams, Simpsons, etc.) as well as a number of other unique games and puzzles. We are currently working on a new game - an American Civil War Edition of Hasbro's classic Stratego game. I came across this wonderful blog site and am hoping some of you would be able to help me!
I am on the hunt for a few Civil War buffs/historians to help me in selecting which ranks (8 Union and 8 Confederate) to include as the game pieces. I have done some preliminary research on this but really want to get an expert opinion on who should be included. The current plan involves using General Lee and General Grant as the "generals" and keeping the remaining pieces generic with no one's name attached to it (i.e., Colonel, Captain, etc.). My goal is to select the 8 most well-known or historic (for lack of a better term) rank of soldiers on each side. We really want to make this game as historically accurate as possible.
Again, any suggestions you might have for me would be most appreciated.
