Napoleon has escaped exile on Elba to retake the French
throne in early 1815, but is surrounded by the armies of the Seventh Coalition,
determined to remove him again. Napoleon's only chance is a preemptive strike,
to disrupt the Coalition's plans and perhaps cause it to fall apart. Belgium
has the closest targets, the armies of his two most steadfast opponents,
Britain and Prussia. The French concentration, secret and swift, catches the
Coalition armies off-guard. For four days, the armies maneuver and clash, with the
fate of Europe in the balance. This game is a reprint and update of the classic
SPI game from 1976. The map covers the entire campaign area, featuring the
towns, roads, rivers, woods, chateaux, and ridges that affected the fighting.
The colorful units in the game include infantry, cavalry, and artillery
brigades, plus key leaders. The original game's scenarios are intact, covering
the entire campaign or using just a portion of the map and counter set to cover
each of the four principal battles fought historically: Ligny,
Quatre Bras, Wavre, and Waterloo (or La Belle Alliance). The one-day mini
campaigns and a Wavre variant from DG's 1995 reprint also return.
A number of extra units have been added to make potential reinforcements
available, to modify the original order of battle due to new research, or to
give players the means to alter each army's countermix. Optional rules present
variants for several of the standard rules.
Components: 24-page Rules Booklet, 400 die-cut counters, two
22” x 34” mapsheets, 1 die.
