The most interesting campaign, a lot of space for the maneuvers, but time and table-space consuming.

Un sistema bien probado y que simula muy bien la vertiente operacional de las Guerras Napoleonicas, pero que a mi entender falla en el táctico. Superado por Habit of Victory. Aún así, si tienes el tiempo y el espacio para echarte la campaña no lo dudes, Zucker nunca defrauda

Beautiful rendition of one of Napoleon's toughest campaigns. The full game has some problems, but I liked this so much I bought a 2nd copy for a gaming buddy so we could play it over the phone (yes, yes, this was before all that fancy Internet stuff). One of my favorites in the series.

OK, I am a "Napoleon at bay version seventies" enthusiast. So I was eager to play the game.
And then came the worst: rules are difficult,not clear,you need a lot of errata's.
We played two full campaign games and deserves a medal for that.
can do better.

My personal favorite in the Campaigns of Napoleon system because it is the biggest and offers the most manuever. Struggle of Nations would be here if it didn't have the little units and tiny hexes. In fact, a friend has made Struggle of Nations with regular hexes and units and updated rules. That is my favorite of all. Not available to the public and not rated on BGG.

A game with a less than medicore name. Kevin Zucker just rehash once more his Napoleon at Bay system into another excellent Napoleonic series game. Great box cover and package. Maps are excellent too.

Huge game, well, huge map. Very pretty, fun to play. Good system, good look at the campaign. Very playable if you have room for the 3 maps. 6-12 hours. There is a campaign game that could take longer, but it's not absolutely necessary.

Part of Kevin Zucker's superb Campaigns of Napoleon-Series (CNS-1x) - depicting the French forces on their way to get a hold on the Russian forces, who are pulling back into Poland and Russia.

Napoleonic Warfare on operational level (regimental/brigade-size).

A must for all the Napoleon-Grognards.

The rating is for the game series' system only; haven't played this one yet.

Good: Operational - Napoleonic - Medium

Plus:
-Theme: Napoleons 1807 winter campaign; nice to play after 1806
-Three huge maps with a lot of space for manoeuvring
-Great strategic situation
-Good balance: really challenging for both
-Low counter density

Minus:
-I like the OSG optics better
-Huge campaign came that requires an afwul lot of space and time

Watch out: you require space and time!

Revisited: appealing game but due to increasing time constraints it does not see table anymore and more accessible games are currently point of attention.
The ultimate game for stdies on Napoleonic Warfar. Recommended only for everyone who is a Napoleon buff and who likes to play the operational side of it all. There is no better than Kevin Zucker around. Excellent for solitary play / studies.

Sold it.

Three maps and organizational displays that make this a monster game, but with very few pieces actually on the boards. The battles and smaller campaigns are challenging, but getting to play the big one is going to be difficult because of time and space considerations. This is one of those games that you stare at the huge amount of territory and your handful of pieces and say, "What do I do now?"

One of Kevin Zucker's tremendous operational-level games on the Napoleonic Wars. This was (and possibly still is) the definitive treatment of the campaign, arguably superseded by Zucker's own THE HABIT OF VICTORY which covers the same campaign at a different scale (you need a lot less table space, that's for sure). I do like the older game for the feel of vast distances/desolation as Napoleon tries to grapple with his enemies in wintry barren hinterlands of Poland. Play this with F. Loraine Petre's book on the campaign in your hand!

These games are not really for competitive players, but for historian gamers who are interested in some of the lesser-known or not-as-popular campaigns of the Corsican Ogre. If you fit that mold, you'll be happy with the game; if you don't, I'd pass it by.

Really like the campaign series and this was the campaign I anticipated, but the rules were so bad I was a little more than disappointed. I may try the new rules and see how it goes.

A beautiful, beautiful map. Requires ACRES of space, however, and the rules are byzantine. Not a fan of the mechanics, either. Would love to sell it.

A heavier weighting on this NAB series game due to some weather/forage/hospital additions. Keen to give this a go, but will probably test drive 'Habit of Victory' first to get a feel for the Campaign.

This is my second game in the Campaigns of Napoleon (1x) series after owning The Struggle of Nations since the early 1980s. I bought this to accompany La Bataille de Friedland, which I plan to play as a face to face team game in 2015 whilst reading David Chandler's The Campaigns of Napoleon.

Counters are clipped and stored in ziplock bags. One counter sheet was so poorly die cut thay I had to use scissors to cut out the counters: no "punching" of those pieces.
