A Solid Game Whilst not as polished as its sequel, Quatre Bras is not to be overlooked. The core mechanics and gameplay are wonderful. They will be readily familiar to fans of Napoleon's Triumph, but are quite easy to grasp for those who aren't. Add in the varibles -- the early start, summoning the guard cavalry and D'Erlon's -- and you've got a game that never gets old. Don't be afraid to throw down the money on this one. You won't be disappointed!
Excellent!! This is a great game that is easy to learn, plays differently every time, and has just the right balance between strategy and a little variability in the artillery accuracy to make every battle unique. A big yes please to the designers for more battles in this genre, also with more complexity a la Napoleon's Triumph of Simmons Games the board game classic.
Stratagy greatness Simple to lear hard to master real mind bender love it
Easy and quick to play Great fun
Good game Love this wee game.
A great start I buy DK Simulations games sight unseen, and I was delighted to discover that this game uses a system similar to the system used in board games like Napoleon's Triumph. The AI is not particularly challenging, but that is a minor quibble. My biggest issue is that the AI does not make decisions about whether to bring in reinforcements, so playing as the Allies, you have to decide whether to commit French reinforcements. If the AI could do this, it would make both sides viable, and the game would be a 5.
v1 - first version
v2 - better set-up. Nicer map showing topography better
v3 - better zoom
