First of all, thank you Victory point games, i just bought Levee en Masse and i am waiting delivery to knock on my door .

I just saw the Napoleonic 20 system and i really like it, i read the rules and tried Jena 20 on Cyberboard.

I often play solo so i was thinking about a little variant to give a taste of "fog of war" during Napoleonic 20 solo play.

---

When units are in combat the player must roll a die for every unit engaged and see the results below:

1-2 the combat value of the unit is reduced by 1
3-5 nothing happens
6 the combat value of the unit is raised by 1

This portraits the "will to fight" or the manouever ability of the General of the Corp/Division, and this should give a bit of unexpected during solo play.

The player will know the average value of the unit but not the real value.

And, if using the expansion kit with attacker and defender tactics and its matrix i will suggest this little house rule:

assuming the player should be always the attacking side (for he is the "active player"):

1 - shuffle all the defender counters and discard "face up" two of them (or just one... i am thinking about it)
2 - attacker will choose one attacking counter
3 - randomly choose one of the 3 (4) defender counters that are face down (or in a cup)
4 - reveal the counters and cross the matrix

Interesting suggestion, Andrea. How would you apply this when using the existing official rule for "Unreliable" troops?

I am sorry i miss that rule on Nap20Rules Ver.2 (the version on the web site)... is that an optional rule or a card for some specific scenario?

Andrea

Leipzig Exclusive rules- Optional Rules section ,16.8(Unreliable Troops)



I would go over to the Napoleonic20 page and post your variant there so it can be used with Any game of the series(once you figure out using it with any unreliable troops rules there might be for any game using it)
