There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

I have always been a fan of good artwork in games and especially love when maps are done especially well. Over the past few years in picking up games I have become quite a fan of one map artist, Rick Barber, and have slowly tried to increase my collection of games where he has done the maps.

Beyond a standard geeklist, this is a call for assistance for game titles where Rick Barber is the map artist. I did a forum and geeklist search but did not find any lists specific to the work of Rick Barber, so I thought it might be a good reference for those of us that love beautiful maps. I hope this might inspire others to create similar geeklists for other artist/map designers who contribute so much to our hobby. I appreciate everyone's contribution to this list and thank you.

This was probably my first game purchase where Rick Barber did the maps. I collect American Civil War games and this map just blew me away. If I could remove the hex grid it would be framed and on my wall!

Picked this title up looking for a good operational game covering the sometimes overlooked southern theater. Every time I lay this map out I lose about 30 minutes just staring at this amazing map!

One in a series of five Napoleonic titles from Clash of Arms games with an amazing map! If it wasn't for the map artwork I probably would have held out purchasing this when I did.

I also believe this is part of the Clash of Arms five game series. A good introductory game to the series and, in my opinion, worth owning for just the map!

The French versus the Prussians in one of Napoleon's famous battles. The map, needless to say, is a true work of art.

February, 1814. Napoleon against the odds proves he was a force with which to still be reckoned with, even if it was a brief glory. The maps are once again fantastic to behold.

Considered one of the hardest fought battles of the Peninsular Campaign. I am guessing this was maybe an early piece of work for Mr. Barber given the age of the game. The map is still beautiful, but I wish there were more and better pictures of the map in the BGG database.

From the game description;

Quote:
The first of the COA games detailing the climactic moments of Napoleon's last 100 days as Emperor. This edition simulates the Prussian Army of the Lower Rhine's desperate attempt to stop the French Armee du Nord as it plunges north towards Brussels. It was here that Napoleon found his last great victory.

From the game description page;

Quote:
This game completes the Waterloo series of games which includes Ligny, Les Quatre Bras and of course Mont St Jean. The game does of course involve the exploits of the right wing of L'Armee Du Nord on June 18th.

It can be played independently of the other games or linked to be simultaneously resolved with Mont St Jean.
Unfortunately there is only one picture of the maps in the database. Thankful to have it there, but wish there were more.

Don't forget this COA Civil War games series. Got this one a few months ago.

Again, great map, with real feel for the period
