Description Edit | History

The game covers Napoleon's move on the way to Moscow but encountered severe resistance at Borodino. His aggression was stopped by the Russian Army and the winter effect.

Strategy & Tactics magazine #32 game published by SPI in 1972. 100 counters



(user comments:)

This game is broadly considered to be one of the early classics of wargaming. Though a crude simulation by today's standards it has many of the hallmarks of what makes a "game" one that is good. It is simple, balanced, replayable and can draw the interest of both new gamers and old salts alike.
