Description Edit | History

On 14 June 1800, the French army under Napoleon Bonaparte was taken by surprise and attacked by the Austrian army under General Melas. Outnumbered and out-gunned, the French were defeated and forced to retreat. But later that same day, French reinforcements arrived under General Desaix, and in what amounted to a second battle the French counter-attacked and won, taking thousands of prisoners and driving the Austrians from the field.

Thus was won the battle of which Napoleon was always the most proud – Marengo.

Bonaparte at Marengo recreates that dramatic battle. The game is simple and fast-playing, departing from almost all of the standard conventions of wargaming in order to achieve the look and feel of nineteenth century linear warfare.

In the summer of 2007, a sequel with a modified system was released: Napoleon's Triumph

FAQ

Q: Can a unit move directly from region 12 to region 11 using the road? Or does a unit need to pass through regions 21 and 20 on that road to reach region 11? (The road isn't drawn through the approaches between 21 and 20.)
See this photo for clarification: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/101063

A: It must move through 21 then 20. The appearance of the road in question is a graphical error in the map. It should have been drawn passing through the approaches between locales 20 and 21 rather than by them.
