In case you haven't heard, we are going to play some Napoleon in Europe at BGG.con this year; the first year it's made an appearance at the con. We're still looking for more players, so it would be great if you'd sign up! Details at CTG NIE at BGG.CON

Hope you have a great time Alan, maybe some day I'll have time to read through the entire latest version of CtG NiE, and maybe even play it (!) ...though that is unlikely anytime in the near future.

Played a couple great sessions of CTG NIE at BGG.con 2015. The first was a "demonstration" 1805 Team game for new players. Midway through it looked like this:



Britain succeeded in all the important naval battles, then lost Nelson and another Admiral in a disastrous, useless port attack. Napoleon finally lost his army in a Waterloo-style battle fought in Switzerland.

The next day we played a shorter 1800 Empire game for more experienced players, using the new Army Screens. Pictures at setup:




France pressed the Austrians deep into Hungary, forcing Austria to sue for peace in the last turn of the game. A British landing drove the Franco Spanish fleet from Brest, but the Royal Navy lost the ensuing naval battle. The Ottomans managed to eek out a win, having done nothing besides capturing Egypt from Bonaparte's minions.

I'm especially glad to have had the opportunity to introduce CTG NIE to several new players. Special thanks to Jonathan for soldiering through both games.
