Napoleon At Waterloo Free Wargame

Gamers (like me) of a certain age will remember the old James Dunnigan game Napoleon At Waterloo. It’s a small, but interesting board game that was given away to S&T subscribers, and also by many game stores — I got mine for free on a “games day.”

You can now download this classic for free. Maybe it can be used to introduce a new generation to the joys of chit and hex games.

Old Trousers 6mm

From Baccus miniatures, Old Trousers 6mm is a set of quick-play Napoleonics, played on a 2 foot x 2 foot board.

Quick Napoleonics

Back when MWAN was still being published, it was my favorite wargaming magazine — in no small part because of the variety of interesting characters who wrote for the magazine. One of those was Friar Aelred Glidden, who is perhaps the world’s only wargaming monk. Glidden’s game rules were always simple, but interesting, and I very much miss reading his works.

Quick Napoleonics is a set of free wargames rules inspired by Friar Glidden.
