Against the Odds Magazine has launched a Kickstarter for an upgraded reprint of their award-winning game, "Beyond Waterloo." The John Prados design begins with Napoleon entering Paris in 1815, but keeps the field open for how and where Europe reacts to him. (Unlike other "100 Days" games, there is nothing that pushes players to have ANY battles in Belgium except their choices!). Beyond Waterloo won the Charles S. Roberts Award in 2012 for "Best Magazine Game." It has been out of print for several years, and ATO wants to upgrade the issue, incorporate clarifications and errata, and include all the expansions and extra scenarios that have come out as well. Stretch goals include card-stock charts, upgraded cards, player aids, and more. [Forum]
