Dear Consimworld, I was told this site had access to the game designer, Kevin Zucker, for 6 Days of Glory. In the rules, I'm perplexed by the term "Prohibited Terrain" in terms of where units can and cannot retreat in 6 Days of Glory--I have a pdf of the rules and could find no section in it where the types of terrain that are prohibited are actually listed (i.e woods, river hexides etc...) Please advise. Thanks — Asked by Anonymous

I'm searching for an upgraded mapboard for the old AH game "War and Peace" that I'd seen it on the web a year or so ago. I decided to buy it, but I am unable to find it now. Could you point me in the right direction? The board had been done in nice colors, and had included some sea-transport lanes to newly added map boxes, ostensibly to simulate the naval overseas reach of the Napoleonic conflict. — Asked by Anonymous


Sure thing. I’m thinking this may be the updated War and Peace map you are looking for.
