Operation Mercury: The Invasion of Crete [Overview] [GTS, MMP, 2017]

"Thanks Eric, there's not much out there on GTS and CCS; Ty and Lee did a few videos [which I link to in my early videos], and Kev [Big Board Gaming] has done a few. It's surprising given how rich the gameplay is throughout these."

The learning curve on GTS

I feel like the learning curve on the GTS system is huge.. Through many hours of gameplay I've now worked through seven scenarios [the first Learning scenario, then the six Introductory scenario], and am onto my first Intermediate-level scenario, and I still feel like I'm wrapping my head around many of the rules, and making the occasional silly rules-mistake. I feel it's worth it though, the tactical considerations I'm making in the current scenario are far advanced of where I was even just…See More

La Bataille d'Albuera

Despite the old counters, La Bataille d'Albuera has the potential to serve as a good introduction to the La Bataille series.

Here's the full video of my recent playthrough:



There are only a small number of specific rules, and they're easy to implement. It's also a relatively easy battle to manage, consisting of just the…

La Bataille de Mont Saint Jean [complete]

It took my about 4-weeks of regular play, dedicating roughly 1-2 hours each night [with a few missed nights], but I finally completed La Bataille de Mont Saint Jean [Battle of Waterloo], using the Marie Louise Rules, and the compiled reports, totalling just over three hours, are now up here:

La Bataille de Mont Saint Jean

I've spent the past few days reading the exclusive rules; punching, clipping and sorting the counters; and finally, setting up the game.





Now it's time to get started at Clash of Arm's La Bataille de Mont Saint Jean which combines their La Bataille des Quatre Bras and La Bataille de Ligny. I need to spend some time figuring out…

Tactical/Regimental-level Napoleonic Wargames?

There seem to be quite a few difference tactical/regimental-level Napoleonic wargames. Does anyone have experience with a broad range of these, enough to recommend one (or a series) above others?



I like the play-style of the Great Battles of the American Civil War system, and ideally I'm looking for something similar, but in the Napoleonic era.



I don't have much of a…
