Napoleonic War Games

Welcome to the Napoleonic Era, when the control of Europe lay in the balance. These napoleonic war games are played at a strategic-level, where players rule historical empires, leading their legions of grenadiers and curraissers. To achieve victory, you will need to use well-planned tactics, clever scheming, and ruthless determination.

The causes of the Napoleonic Wars are complex, but beneath all the propaganda its roots reach down into the ancient struggle for wealth, power and position between Britain and France, back through Agincourt, Poitiers to Hastings in 1066. In some respects the Napoleonic Empire was a counter-revolution, restoring order after a period of excess, but in other respects it carried on revolutionary goals. Napoleon's very existence was an affront to the royal houses of Europe and their loyalists. Even worse, his economic policy opposed the hegemony of London bankersÑhe resolved never to "live upon the future," and never ran a deficit budget.

The Napoleonic War Games in the Napoleonic Battles series cover many different campaigns during the time of Emperor Napoleon. March with Napoleon's Grand Armee or join the struggle of nations who battled the man, the emperor, the despot of Europe's 18th Century. Recreate with these Napoleonic War Games, the early battles with these napoleonic war games where Napoleon stunned the world with his revolutionary art of war, or the last desperate struggle to save France from a league of enemies.
