Review of N: The Napoleonic Wars

"So one rainy Saturday morning I decided to print this thing out and give it a play. And boy am I glad that I did!...This is a fantastic little solo game...If you’re a fan of Napoleonics and grand strategy games which focus as much on the politics as the actual fighting, then you should try this game out. If you’re new to wargames but are interested in history, this might also be a game for you since the rules are fairly straightforward and well written. If you’re looking for detailed tactical manoeuvring of your armies as they march across Europe, perhaps you’re better off looking elsewhere. But consider that at the end of the day, N tells a great story and is a great experience overall." - Christian van Someren

Mounted Game Boards

Some WDG customers have mounted the game boards of their WDG games. WDG does not offer this service but you can have that done by a company called Print & Play. Just send them an image file of your WDG game board, which we provide free on request to game buyers, and for a small charge Print & Play will send you a nice, mounted game board. The game maps are mounted as one piece and fold for convenient storage.

Below are two examples of WDG games with mounted game boards submitted courtesy of Paul Maienknecht.

Larger Maps Printed In One Piece

WDG is pleased to announce that we are now printing our 22" x 17" maps in one piece. No longer will we print a 22" x 17" map in two 17" x 11" sections; instead it will be printed on one 22" x 17" sheet. The map will be folded twice to fit the box. Note that the folds for a one-piece 22" x 17" map will be no different in degree than the folds for two 17" x 11" sections. Below is a snap of a one-piece War in the Pacific map unfolded from the box. Gamers will probably want to continue using a plastic sheet over the new one-piece map format as before with the two 17" x 11" sections.

For those who would like no folding creases at all on the 22" x 17" map, we will offer the 22" x 17" map sent by mail tube.
