The usual geeklist where I can record the games I play for the next podcast episode, others I won't make it to (but are interesting to consider), and so on.

I've now moved back to California, but have one more France-located topic to cover for the podcast. The Franco-Prussian War is another topic I didn't know much about when I started. Some historians say that in 1870 it set the table for the 20th conflicts that define our modern world.

Be sure to follow the blog & podcast itself over at https://www.boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/68153/wargames-go-131...

I've had it for a while. From what I've read, I'm not really looking forward to this one. More fiddly than I'd like.

A well-regarded game AND the magazine article. Sounds perfect. Maybe I should start with this one.

I'd LIKE to obtain a copy, but with no easy sources--and too many games already on this list--I will let this one pass by.

Nope, wrong--I decided to order one. Seller was in Spain, and the mag got to me pretty quickly and inexpensively.

I had a good experience with this designer's other PNP games. Eager to try this one.

I printed four 11x17 sheets and glued them together to make a large version of the map. Now that I'm back home the counters are better than I was able to make for myself in France. I use matte board from an art supply store. The counters are single-sided, which helps, too. I had my trusty Oregon Laminations corner-rounder, as well.

Now I just need to PLAY it.

One of the later VV mags (after issue 100) that features mounted counters. That's a welcome improvement. (And still a bargain!)

This isn't even about the FP War. However, it's directly about the previous attack (and conquering) of the capital city. These events factored heavily on the minds of France's next military generation. The fortress system and city walls built after 1814's events led to the endgame of the FP War--the siege of Paris.



A fine little game for me. I've played a lot of Vae Victis games, but I think this was my first one from the recent publication era, when they include diecut counters instead of ones you have to paste up. That's nice. Are all of that new maps small like this, just half-sized? That would be fine with me, too. Especially if they're this attractive.

As for gameplay, this was closer to the light combat system that I've been wanting to complement lighter rulesets. Yes, the historical scenario is imbalanced, so a French "win" comes from delaying the surrender of Paris longer than actually happened (even by hours). I liked it for the history, showing which allied units arrived when, where, and how the pushed their way through the French defenses. Including some tough fights for hills and other defensive locations. If you want a more balanced game, you can play the alt-hist scenario where Napoleon himself retreated from Waterloo to the personal defense of Paris, bringing a corps with him. That would have more fireworks.

I really love this map. So evocative. This is the setup for the standard scenario.

The reinforcement schedule for the allies is an impressive bunch of stacks. As a Californian, I normally don't find my home on a wargame map, so it was special to study hex 1103 in this game. That's where my Paris (Vincennes) apartment was, though in 1814 I think it was probably farmland next to the fortress.

Here's when & where the allies broke into Paris' perimeter defenses. It's only a matter of time, as the French don't have enough units to resist. Although the game includes Napoleon himself and another corps(?) that could've been there, had history been different. I didn't try that scenario.

"Also Ran" is never a game I play for these podcasts. It's just something I use as a separator for games above (that I might play), and ones below (that I don't plan to).

Belagerungs-spiel, as this asymmetric classic dating to the Napoleonic era was originally known, is not a game about the Franco-Prussian war. However, this particular German edition was made for the French market shortly after that war ended.

Board Game: Asalto


What makes it interesting (and funny) is its realistic but unlikely art: The board shows properly uniformed French artillery officers at work, but they are firing what are unmistakeably 1870 Krupp breech-loading siege guns - exactly the ones used against the French in the siege of Paris!

Not quite ready in time for my podcast, and probably a bit larger in game scope than I'd play (I think).
