Now live on Kickstarter! The game features several innovations that combine to create a fluid and dynamic experience while remaining historically accurate: Regiments are never stacked, losses are recorded using 3D pieces and combat results are immediately obtained through dice rolls, with minimal use of tables and markers. The command system allows players to issue orders in a manner that realistically simulates the imperfect communication between generals in the Napoleonic era: anticipate the evolution of the battle and dispatch timely orders, knowing that their arrival will not be immediate, and that they could be delayed or even lost entirely!
