Description

This game is epic. I've played it in its prior incarnations many times, but this is an entirely different animal. The combination of command, hidden movement and big stacks means that frontal assaults are both possible and decisive. Where the original game was the classic line 'em up and count combat factors, the new one is much more subtle. Hidden movement creates both local and regional uncertainty.

Napoleon at Leipzig is a comprehensive game with a proven track record of excellent re-playability, among the most popular Napoleonic wargames of all time with 20,000 copies in print across the first 4 editions. Now it has a bigger playing area and more manpower for both sides, all working within a smooth and efficient engine of 19th-century warfare.

Some of the surprises in this edition

Eleven additional hex-rows of terrain, added to the top of the north and bottom of the south maps, provides 25% additional maneuver room for the armies.

The reason Napoleon didn't build additional bridges for his army to escape, his Pontoon train was blocked from reaching Leipzig (This is covered by a card).
