Wargame Design Studio has started a new “Game of the Week” program that’s going to put a different game on sale each week (except during store-wide sale months).  The plan is to rotate through a bunch of different titles throughout the year, and the first one in the hopper is Civil War Battles: Campaign Antietam.   Note, this is the entire campaign, and not just the battle of Antietam itself – all for $29.95
