Top 10 Battle of Borodino Games
- Robert Carroll(Nap16)United States
Below is my Top 10 list of games covering the battle of Borodino (aka the battle for Moscow as it was the last major offensive of Napoleon during the invasion of Russia) during the Napoleonic Wars. These are games that meet substantially all of the following criteria: (1) focuses on the battle of Borodino or the lead-up to the battle, including the overall campaign in Russia; (2) a wargame; (3) addresses the "theme" in an interesting or compelling manner that leaves the player with a better understanding of the battle of Borodino (and its various aspects); and (4) fun to play (understanding that this can be very subjective, especially for wargames). This is a list of the BEST! As always, your mileage may vary and some entries may be "controversial." As such, please feel free to comment, debate, or just express your own point of view. Feel free to this list (to draw attention and more comments) or any pleasing, interesting or thought provoking entries. If I missed one that you feel is essential or I am "insane for not listing" (trust me, it has been said before), then by all means let the comments fly . . . just be civil. FYI - I am a sucker for comments and discussion and usually most if not all of them.Recommend

I find that these lists sometimes are helpful for others seeking similar games and the more rich the discussion for more useful the list.
