Von Moltke's Triumph

By designer Tom Russell, Von Moltke's Triumph: The Fall of the Second Empire has been sent to the printer and will be available soon. Von Moltke's Triumph is a two-player game simulating the first decisive campaign of the Franco-Prussian War. Under Helmuth von Moltke the Elder, the German states used superior logistics, advanced artillery, and a strategy of envelopment to terrorize the sluggish and unprepared French. Historically, it ended with the capitulation and capture of Napoleon III after a mere five weeks. The game slants historically but is intended for competitive play: the French will almost always lose the war, but a good French Player can win the game.

Can't wait for this one to be available. I've wanted a good Franco-Prussian War game for ages. If the quality of this matches "Crisis on the Right" I'll be well-pleased!
