I am mightily displeased that the locals let the last remnant of the Quatre Bras battlefield be torn down.

And I now realize that I have Quatre Bras built or available for the following systems:

1.  Black Powder 2
2.  Blucher
3.  Commands and Colors: Napoleonics (weirdly, no epic or LGB version available, even unofficial)
4.  Lasalle 2 (rules due out soon)
5.  Napoleon's Last Battles
6.  Shako 2
7.  Snappy Nappy (almost)
8.  Volley and Bayonet (also almost)

With the decision not to release v. 2, I've scratched my LPE project.

I have embraced the notion of playing through them all. and declaring which of them is our favorite.   Or, put differently, which we prefer?  Thing of it is, each game has a different player count.  Shako, for example, could readily seat 4-6.  C&C is pretty well two.  So, with that in mind, who wants to be on the test team such that I'll seek you out come either Wednesday (more likely) and Saturday (for the bigger games)?

Also open to hearing which you'd like to learn or test.

Jeff already knows he's explaining "BP2".

I'd be up for another game of blucher and as always a bit of a wildcard if you need a player on anything else :)

I may get to Polemus and it has a scenario, but MN doesn't support scenarios.
