Napoleon’s Imperium, 1798-1815 is an addictive and exciting new Napoleonic War game for two to eight players on a grand scale that has undergone more than 28 years of design and development. Designed for two to eight players, the game pitches eight Empire Nations of the Napoleonic Wars, divided into two Alliance’s in a fight to the death struggle for control of Napoleonic Europe. The game has a “Churchill war room” feel with large numbers of counters representing age-of-sail style Fleets, Artillery, Cavalry, Infantry, Commanders, Spies, the colors (flags) and the odd camel just to mix it up! It’s big, it’s bright, it’s attractive, it’s interactive and it’s addictive!
