|Battles of Napoleon | Published 15 February 2010|
“When we are determined upon war, we should carry it on vigorously and without trifling.”
– Napoleon Bonaparte
For twenty years, from 1796 until the final defeat at Waterloo in 1815, Napoleon Bonaparte and his generals fought on the battlefields of all Europe. Now, you can recreate the excitement and danger of the Napoleonic Wars on your tabletop!
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Battles of Napoleon, a board game for two players. Battles of Napoleon is a war simulation system that pits the forces of the French against the forces of the British, and this first game in the series, The Eagle and the Lion, includes ten gripping scenarios.
The Battles of Napoleon system is easy to learn, but it offers a wealth of strategic options; this gives you a fast and challenging game while at the same time pitting you against the same tactical problems that commanders of the Napoleonic age had to face. Well-coordinated use of infantry, cavalry and artillery, skillful maneuvering of your units and use of your formations, and knowledge of the strong and weak points of your troops, will all be essential in leading your army to victory.

Battles of Napoleon is a board game of strategic battles set in early 1800s Europe. Two players send orders, organize their various troops into formations, and manage their troop morale in an attempt to lead their armies to victory.
Interesting. I'm a long time wargamer and am capable of sourcing rules, scenery and miniatures and painting them. So I have many choices for my wargaming kicks and this won't necessarily be the first.
Never-the-less, It'd be interesting to see what FFG and Nexus can do here. So I'll follow the developments for this game closely
Will we have a Napoleon vs Russian expansion?
Oh yeah, I've been looking at this one on BGG for about a year now, mark me down as another "Must have" fan!
Looks VERY impressive.
I was starting to think this would never come out! Looks amazing and I'll be first in line without question.
at last!!!! I was waiting for this!!!!
The description page quotes Hugo!!!! This is now an automatic, first day purchase for me!!
True, WHATS IN THE BOX?!
The box doesn't fit the black square with the question mark. I think it's something else.
This looks absolutely awesome! This is hitting a sweet spot for me! I hope this is a very realistic game that will allow us to re-enact actual battles these armies engaged in. There's soooooo much potential here!!!!
Is this the 3rd question mark box on the front page?
Is this the third new release they were talking about at gencon
