Chris, it sure looks like you appreciate the pre-Napoleonic and Napoleonic era games! 1776 has certainly aged extremely well. Haven't played enough of the Napoleonic 20 series, just Jena 20 and Fading Glory. Do think the C&C Napoleonic series are marvelous but haven't played all of them! Am big on the COIN and GBOH, even if I'm no good at playing them competitively!
