It is near dawn on April 6th, 1862. The first major clash of arms in the western theater of the American Civil War is about to commence! You and your opponent each control one of the opposing armies.


As the Confederate player, you open the battle with a devastating surprise attack on the Union camps around Shiloh church. If you can route the disorganized blue coats and take Pittsburg Landing before reinforcements arrives, you can deal a potentially fatal blow to the invading Yankees.

As the Union player you must survive the initial onslaught and hold back the advancing rebels on the first day of battle. Then, the next day, you can deploy your full forces to crush this latest threat to the survival of the United States. Whose will prevails?



Clash of Wills is the perfect way for 2 players to swiftly and casually explore military strategy in the first land battle of the American Civil War. It tells a rich story without requiring a lot of time or complicated rules. You can finish a game in ≈45 minutes. Dice and action cards determine flexible command opportunities.
