That is far and away my favourite tactical level Napoleonic game. Large enough to give you plenty of units to play with, small enough to finish in less than a turtle's lifespan, balanced enough that the better general wins. The LOS rules were always a bit tricky, but that happens in a lot of boardgames. Two thumbs way up for that one.

Youtube has some very informative videos on this one, Jason.

Unboxing Legion of Honor (lots of goodies inside): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXW79NEUqq0

Legion of Honor review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpvIkftUmVc

Legion of Honor - Intro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RUQTevYwOA

Legion of Honor - On Campaign Round: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vI8AZLUK-bA

I have to say... It looks like an amazing game (just take a look at that box full of goodies)!

Gain experience, promotions, wealthy, medals and titles... Rise fast or slow... This game has it all... Duels, sex (yes, it can bring some advantages), live with honor or not, try to save the eagle or run away, act with courage and you may die or be a coward and save your life, take risks and rise fast on your military career or play it safe (being promoted very slowly), try to get Napoleon's attention and favour, fight in various campaigns between 1792 and 1815 (if you can survive all those campaigns, one after the other), lead the eagle forward or not, parlay with the enemy, use your skills to survive, join the eagles during the Hundred Days or not (you could be shot just Ney was) and much more. What's not to like?

I'm very tempted to buy this one, my friend.

Dismal Jimmy,

I don't know if you are aware that Decision Games is reprinting and updating SPI's Napoleon's Last Battles and Wellington's Victory.

I was not aware. (And now I am).

WV was nice, but NvW was the better game IMO, for the reasons I gave. But I'm still gonna get it.

Thanks, Stratego.

Yes, May 2018, but likely before, if the Kickstarter reach the goal.
