Description Edit | History

Le Retour de l'Empereur is a game on four battles of 1815: Quatre Bras, Ligny, Waterloo and Wavre, using the Vive l'Empereur game system.

"Vive l’Empereur!" is a series of simulation games using a standard rules system and a set of exclusive rules specific to each battle. These particular rules include an historical commentary and the victory conditions for each scenario. The aim of this system is to refight at the regimental scale the numerous battles fought during the Napoleonic Era in Europe, between 1805 and 1815. It uses a map on which the players move counters representing the combat units involved in these battles.

The present game simulates battles of the campaign of 1815 in Belgium that belongs to the legend. After he returns from Elba, Napoléon reconstructed an army and landed a preventive strike on the two closest armies, the Prussian army under the old and faithful Blücher, and the Anglo-Allied army under the Duke of Wellington. At first spread over a vast area, these two armies eventually assembled and fought four legendary battles at Quatre Bras and Ligny on the 16th of June, and then two days later at Wavre and of course Waterloo, called Mont St Jean by the French, and La Belle Alliance by the Prussians. This campaign is an impressive collection of missed opportunities on both sides. Now it is your turn to do at least as well, or better...

Components:

- six 22" x 34" maps (scale 250m/hex)
- 600 counters, including 300 combat units
- 2 rules booklets: the Standard Rules Version 3 and the special rules
- 10 charts and tables, including army losses
- more than 30 scenarios and what-ifs, including a 3-day campaing game

1 Vive L' Empereur rules summary
This is a a rules summary I have been working on. Primarily to help digest the rules but also to help with getting the optional rules I want integrated into the main rules. I expanded the TOC but the rules could really use an index.... As such it is not comprehensive regarding all the options. It is abbreviation heavy, so user beware. Let me know of any suggested changes, corrections or improvements.
