Napoleon’s Triumph

without comments

Peter came over and destroyed me at Napoleon’s Triumph. It’s very difficult to grasp how to play well. I read the rules, but they didn’t help much when playing. Peter understood the basics, so cleaned up.

As many have said, Napoleon’s Triumph is a game that reinvents the wargame. Imagine Nightmare Stratego and maybe you’ll have an idea. I suspect I will not like it in the long run, as I like to relax while playing games, but I was very wrong about Age of Steam on my first play, so it will get another chance.

Before I play Peter again, I’m going to try to find the time to play the solitaire scenario with Vassal.
