Berthier Campaign Manager

A new version of the Berthier Campaign Management software is out. Tony DeLyall, the programmer, explains:

Berthier is software that manages wargames campaigns for miniatures. Berthier allows two campaigners, without an umpire, to run simple strategic campaigns leading to tabletop battles. Alternatively umpires can use Berthier to run two sided campaigns. Berthier is suitable for historical, naval or fantasy wargaming in most periods but was developed with the Horse and Musket period in mind. Play by email (PBEM) is possible.

The software has been updated to version: 6.0
