In the wonderful game, Bonaparte at Marengo, this is how to get nasty Frenchies out of a village.
I just got the game as a bday present. I read through the rules and i think i know the rules, but i was wondering if someone in the princeton, nj area could play a game or two with me so that i can see the game in action. I'm the type of person that learns faster by playing the game than by just reading the rules. Thanks.
If you don't find a local opponent, you can see if anyone would be up for a tutorial play-by-email game using cyberboard. As you say, the best way to learn is to try to play. PBEM's not as fun or effective a learning tool as face-to-face, but it's not bad.
