Field Commander Napoleon is our biggest game to date, as befits the Empire, the Emperor, and his Grande Armée! The game is so massive it requires a 4″ high box!
The game design focuses on the battlefield tactics and Napoleon’s powerful personality. Through political and military cunning, Napoleon swept France to super-power status. In previous Field Commander games, supply was a primary concern. As the Emperor himself said, “An army travels on its stomach.” In this game, Napoleon’s achievements and public adulation drive all facets of game play. Be successful, gain the support of your troops and your countrymen, and you can achieve anything!
The game spans all of Napoleon’s campaigns from Italy in 1796 to Waterloo in 1815.
Success depends on the vital balance between strategic and tactical focus. You must move your forces across the maps to achieve your strategic goals, but you must also out-think your opponents on the battlefield.
You can play each campaign as a stand-alone game, or as part of a linked series of games.
