Borodino 1812

New from Columbia Games. Borodino 1812 covers this historical battle involving wave after wave of frontal attacks by both sides, focusing on the Russian redoubts. However, the game will show all the options available to Napoléon and Kutuzov, including some not attempted historically. The French player has several possible lines of attack and the Russian player must try to anticipate and counter them all. The tactical interaction of Napoléonic infantry, cavalry and artillery is also emphasized, including cavalry charges and squares. This makes for exciting and tense gaming. Price: $69.98.
