Today I got the chance to play test Napoleon Bonaparte meets Chain of Command courtesy of a great guy, John. You can soon see more pictures and more about the game on his fantastic blog http://fuentesdeonoro.
blogspot.com/?m=1 (wargamingin 28mm and sometimes smaller).It was a a fun game to say the least with some minor questions, and some minor recommendations.This is just what I think after playing a small game. I'm knowhere near an expert but here are my thoughts on the pros and cons.
CONS:First, was attack colums. What were the advantages (if any)?Second, there was no opportunity fire by the defender when closing into combat. I think there should definatly be a fire opportunity for defending infantry before they close into hand to hand.
PROS:The patrol phase was excellent and helps get troops into combat quickly. This makes for a better game, not taking up time moving onto the table and into action.The command structure was good as well. With a similar feel to regular Chain of Command, with commanders having multiple activations, there was never a shortage of what you could accomplish with good and bad command dice.
Overall it was a fun game and I'm looking foward to playing more in depth games.
