The Most Terrible Battle Borodino 1812 is a low complexity game simulating one of the most gigantic and bloody battles of the Napoleonic era, at divisional scale.
The Most Terrible Battle: Borodino 1812 is an introductory game at the division level of perhaps Napoleon’s most famous battle next to Waterloo. The game includes the meeting engagement of September 5, 1812 as well as the main battle of Borodino fought two days later. The game design is suited for beginners and more experienced players alike as it includes features such as square formations, heavy cavalry charges. The game map includes terrain such as the Fleches, and the Shevardino and Grand Redoubts. There are Cossack and garrison units. In each turn, there is a non-active player reaction phase for the inactive player to react to the active players moves. The game map for Borodino is based on a modified style and color of maps favored by historians in the decades immediately after the battle.
