Bobby's Games

I will be posting monthly recaps of my gaming which I have been doing in GeekLists. I'll also be commenting on games on occasion, though I can tell you that I will be behind the curve because I just don't get to play the new games as soon as some people do.

I was able to play Commands & Colors: Napoleonics for the first time tonight and I hate to report that I was really disappointed.

One of the complaints I had seen over and over about the game is there was little impetus to attack. That's because you lose fighting power by moving while putting yourself into the line of fire of the enemy, and the ranged attacks are so devastating. Because of the complaints, I was happy to see that I had what appeared to be the attacking position with the British in the Roliça (French Second Position) scenario. I had cards which let me attack on left and right, but got shredded attacking and it became quickly obvious that those complaints were right.

I'm now leaning towards trading away my unplayed copy just because I would much rather play Commands & Colors: Ancients and maybe even the newer Battle Cry. Heck, I'd even rather play the original Battle Cry with all of its warts.

I'm sure Mike and I will play it again so I might change my opinion.
