Welcome to Field Commander: Napoleon, the third in our series of Field Commander games. The goal in designing this game system was to make the careers of some of history’s great commanders accessible in an easy to learn, fast playing game format. We decided on solitaire, because it had the proper feel. Commanders have staff and advisors, but in the end, they alone make the hard decisions that affect lives, change the course of campaigns, and decide the fate of nations.
In this game, you make all the decisions needed to command your Forces. The game rules, charts, and die rolls dictate the actions of the opposing forces.

Here it is, my idea for storing the counters of a marvelous and well designed game. Empty CD-cases (I hope it is the right expression) is a standard; everyone shall own one minimum. In the file you will find drawings and pictures for 12 different inserts. After a little bit of working and Origami you will have inserts to put in the CD-cases to replace the plastic-thing that normally holds a CD.
There is one insert per scenario, except 1796/1800. Two inserts are for the general things to play, except the dice and the boards. Download it, have a try and maybe fun. Drop me a line if you have questions or ideas for improvements.
After playing through this fantastic game, I was intrigued about the history behind the game. Since the game itself doesn't have a whole lot of historical info, I've thrown together this file, mostly containing info gleaned from this excellent site: http://www.napoleonguide.com/campind.htm
