OSS Games is a small company. We are composed of no full-time staff,  but  rather are a group of individuals who enjoy producing games in our  spare  time. Our MO is to produce small print-run games with  consistently high production values. We try to bring you the highest  quality product possible for a reasonable amount of money. We do this  because we enjoy  it.

That said, we are a game publisher, not a PR firm. We limit   communication to essential announcements. Therefore, we will not be   posting constant updates about everything little thing. Our posts will   be limited to essential milestones, such as the game going to press,  the  receipt of press samples, or when the game begins shipping. The  press  process is often one of waiting punctuated by occasional back and  forth on minor issues. If you don't hear from us in the updates  section, this  is simply because we do not have any update that changes  status of the  previous one.

The other day I swore I was going to stop pledging Kickstarters. That didn't last very long.

I guess my question really is, would it fit on a table?

One large MOUNTED map board in two 22" x 34" sections

So, probably 44"/almost four feet across by 34"/almost three feet. Rather large.

Looks interesting but I know nothing about the original.  Was this a definitive Napolenoics game?  What makes this one special / worth backing?

"definitive" is questionable, given the enormous breadth of Napoleonic games




but it was the first mass-market strat-level treatment of the entire Napoleonic wars, from end to end


Best descriptor I ever heard was "It's Third Reich for Napoleonic War fans"

Not definitive, no such thing, and, depending on my mood, I can prefer the designer's other strategic-level games (Napoleonic Wars, Wellington, Kutusov),  but I call it classic without hesitation.

It has always been to me the kinder, gentler brother of "Empires in Arms".

The system is straight-forward and the scenarios are each a good study of the campaign in question.

The only problem, which the designer acknowledges, is that the grand campaign never quite worked.  This has been one of the biggest goals of the re-design.

Very much looking forward to it.  I was in when it was up for pre-order on OSS.  Concerned it didn't make the minimum there and hope the KS gets this done.
