Ratings and Reviews
Has really grown on me
I've been interested in Napoleonic warfare and played board games since I was in high school. I downloaded this game and at first it didn't really impress me much, but as I have played it more, I realize this game has a lot of great features that are subtle and if you just randomly play the game you might not appreciate how much is going on in this game. The differences in formations really make a difference as do troop quality and morale. I am not going to pretend that I fully understand all that is going on there but when I see a unit in line break and run from a cavalry charge I realize that there is a good deal to appreciate in this game. There are certainly things that could be done to improve the game. One of those is that I would propose it would be more realistic if every unit that engages in melee were disorganized after the fact. This is particularly true of cavalry. They do not seem to "feel" the ill effects of engaging in melee after a charge. They should probably require a turn or two to reorganize. Secondly units should probably rout/disorganize more if as they lose troop strength. Also it would be nice if there was a way to create your own scenarios. And of course it would be gret if you could play another human, but overall, two big thumbs up for these Napoleonic era games. Please make more!!
As another reviewer noted, this game plays a lot like the old miniature-based game system, Empire. I too am an old gamer familiar with that system, and the other reviewer is correct, there are several similarities to the former. A few more historical additions such as desultory cavalry, negative charisma, and nationalistic battle tactics would be interesting additions. Even so, this is a good and entertaining game in its own right.
Good game - could be even better
Very well done game. The game rules remind me of Empire (for all of those that have done miniature war gaming). Missing are formation directions, flank vs rear attacks (both melee and firing) and cannon limbering - include those and we really have a game system!
