Marengo - revisited

Marengo (Decision Games - folio)

Time to have another go at Marengo (see the previous Marengo post for a more detailed AAR and the Shiloh post for an in depth look at the system) from the Musket and Saber series. I use the quick play version of the rules, which are actually intended to be used with the 'mini' folio games, so when playing the full sized folio games, there may be some areas of the full rules that players will need to dip into.

Saalfeld, prelude to Jena 10th October 1806.

Image taken from the front cover.

Saalfeld is a ‘mini folio’ game from Decision Games, using a 17" x 11" map and just 40 counters. It uses the cut down (quick play) version of the full system that is presented in the larger game folios. Click ‘read all’ below for a full After Action Report and game observations.
