In Leipzig, a wargame took flight,
Recreating the famed historic fight.
With strategy profound,
More accurate, they found,
Than Scott’s film, where history ran riot.
Ridley’s Napoleon, grand on the screen,
Yet inaccuracies all over were seen!
In the wargame’s embrace,
Each detail found its place,
The guys at Leipzig, more faithful, it seems.
- Game system: Sam Mustafa’s Blucher, which is not Napoleonic battles at the platoon level, even if it seems like it’s taking that long
- Forum Thread: still here
- More Info: Watch some re-enactors making a better movie than that movie
Don’t forget to pop in the Saturday Night Fights sub-forum on our site, where you can see what’s coming up and make requests for games. Plenty of the Dragoons are setting up all sorts of games, all the time.
