Introduction of the game

I used google translate tool.
Actually, the only new information is there will be 10 scenarios in this game. Sounds great.

Quote:
Twenty long years, from 1796 until the defeat at Waterloo 1815, Napoleon Bonaparte and challenged his troops on the battlefields of Europe.

The Battles of Napoleon is a game series, the most important battles of the period simulated. The game system is simple to learn and allows for a quick end. Despite the low complexity of the system is based on a detailed historical research. This allows both the tactical problems facing Napoleonic generals are needed to be adjusted as quickly and elegantly played.

In order to be successful, must be infantry, cavalry and artillery will be useful, must be skillfully maneuvered their units and formations of the appropriate elected - always the strengths and weaknesses of the troops in mind.

And 90 Euros... perhaps plus significant shipping?

I'm going to want to see some rules, somewhere, before getting out the credit card. It's certainly beautiful to look at, but I wonder how it plays?

Sergio or ugo ,its been quite a while since we've heard anything about the game so i'd really appreciate it if you could let us know if the release date on the phalanx website is correct and at least a rough approximation of when the english version will be available.You have to give us some info cause there's a few of us on this site that have been loyal fans of this game and waited patiently for its arrival for quite some time.At least let us know if its still getting made and if it is maybe some more info on the rules and photos of the finished prototype would be good .
Thanks.

While the EU folks can pre-order the game there are currently no shipping options to the US so we can't complete the pre-order process.

I agree we need to see some rules before forking over a lot of declining dollars...

I shudder thinking about shipping cost from Germany...

Yep!! I know the game will be released when done....adn when all the logistics are worked out. I remember waiting for Tide Of Iron and it seemed to take forever.....now that I have had it a while....it seems trivial. Board games, unlike computer games do not suffer from a late or very late release date.
