Dear Renaud,

I know the game has been around for awhile now, but I am glad I discovered it and wanted to publicly thank you for taking the time to create such a GREAT game. It captures the essence of the historical events of the "flavor" of the period as well. The strategy is deep, the components beautiful, and the time it takes to complete is within reason (not 6 to 8 hours!).

I read your designer notes in the "Scenarios and More" PDF here on BGG, and took note of your prioritization of family life and greatly appreciate that. I love to play historical war games with my sons and this one allows me to do so without compromising other responsibilities. My 11 year old son loves the game saying it's his new favorite (and he loves Twilight Struggle, Washington's War, Commands and Colors: Napoleonics, and No Retreat, so your game is in very good company!). Thank you for all your efforts. They are blessing a good number of families and working class men with good, clean, educational, brain-exercising fun. Blessings,

Jim Lee

Thanks. Very kind of you. It is particularly meaningful that your son enjoys playing it with his dad.

Indeed Jim, this is on heck of a great game!

If you liked it, you'll also Love Renaud's gem of a game on the US Civil War.

I just looked at it the other night. It does look very good and I don't have any civil war games except the light "Battlecry." May have to give it a try.

Hey, Carl. I sent you a message asking for a Vassal game of Age of Napoleon. Did you get it? Let's do it! By the way, I'm really enjoying No Retreat with my son, too!

Yes do look into it.

OK I saw your message, and just answered, sorry for the delay.
