The rules of Napoleon 1806 are divided into three parts and can be learnt in fifteen minutes. The first one, called "Rules of the Conscript", allows to acquire all the notions of the game easily. The second, "Rules of the Grognard", brings more finesse including "fog of war". The last, "Rules of the Marshal", allows to play Napoleon 1806 in competition.

Will you meet the challenge of doing as well as the Emperor Napoleon or will you succeed in thwarting his plans at the head of the Prussian forces? 

How to play Napoleon 1806:

A game of Napoleon 1806 is played in 7 turns, each representing two days of campaign. Players alternate operations with their army corps. Fatigue and losses accumulate until the breaking point of one of the two armies causing the defeat of a player.

The game is based on cards to perform moves and combats. Even if luck is present, strategy is key to victory. Moving your army corps on different approach paths to facilitate maneuvers, managing the fatigue of your men generated by marching and fighting, concentrating your forces in order to win the decisive battle; these are the challenges you will face.

The French troops are more numerous and more experienced than those of their opponent, but time is short before the arrival of the Russian reinforcements, and the Prussian army is not to be underestimated! The French player to win will have to master the art of attacking and speed of action. The Prussian player, although defensive, will have to seize the opportunities presented to him to counter-attack and surprise his opponent. As the game is fast, each player will have the opportunity to take charge of the fate of both armies in one evening.

    Napoléon 1806 nous faire revivre et nous plonge dans la fabuleuse campagne éclair de la Grande Armée contre l’armée prussienne en Saxe durant l’automne 1806. Et autant vous dire que ce jeu de Denis Sauvage et développé par Julien Busson est une petite pépite ludique. Un jeu de simulation historique pour deux joueurs, asymétrique et à l’échelle opérationnelle (échelle des corps d’armée), que nous avons trouvé relativement simple à prendre en main et d’une très jolie profondeur de par son gameplay. Une carte faite à l’encre de Chine, de grands cubes en bois illustrés pour représenter les corps d’armée, un deck de cartes retraçant les grands moments historiques et toute une série d’autres petits composants... On a littéralement été séduits par cette belle production. En résumé, un titre stratégique mais facilement accessible qui plaira aussi bien aux amoureux des jeux de gestion qu’aux ludistes souhaitant s’initier aux simulations historiques. On ne saurait trop vous le recommander !

    Un super système qui tourne très bien et permet de rejouer dans un temps très raisonnable cette campagne de Napoleon. Matériel somptueux.

    Un excellent jeu d'affrontement asymétrique. Des règles accessibles, un matériel de très bonne qualité qui adoucit un prix un peu élevé certes mais il existe finalement assez peu de jeu sur ce créneau, permettant une très bonne expérience tactique dans un contexte historique, sans que ça dure des heures et sans règles trop lourdes. Des mécaniques malines offrent une bonne représentation des mouvements d'armées, des combats et de la fatigue, tout en restant très fun à jouer. Facile à sortir et finalement original vu son créneau entre wargame et jeu de plateau, Napoléon 1806 est une très bonne pioche.
