Fourth Edition! A new 4th edition, funded on KICKSTARTER, will be available in June 2013. The success of the Kickstarter campaign has made Napoléon better for everyone - all 4th edition copies will have metallic foil unit labels and a deluxe map and battleboards.
The 4th edition brings the game back to its 1st edition roots with some improvements. Napoléon can be played by two or three players.
On June 18, 1815, one of the most decisive battles in military history was fought in fields ten miles southeast of Brussels. Within a short 100 days, Napoléon, former emperor of France, had returned from exile on the island of Elba, again seized power, quickly assembled an army, and marched to attack the dispersed British and Prussian armies now preparing to invade France.
Napoléon attacked on June 15th, defeated the Prussians at the Battle of Ligny on the 16th and after a day of pursuit, faced the British and Dutch army commanded by Wellington. Aided by superb defensive tactics and the timely arrival of Prussian reinforcements, Wellington defeated the French in the great Battle of Waterloo, ending forever the military ambitions of the great Napoléon.
