Nice review. I especially appreciated the description of the changes from the prior version.

An excellent review.

One question – are these new rules exclusive to the Republican period or can they be used for the Imperial phase as well in other words the entire war?

They can be used for the entire war, and I think Bruce is coming up with fast play sheets that make them useable for 1866 and 1859 as well.

Thanks Mollinary.

We had a couple of serious attempts at 1870 but gave up eventually. We got bogged down in the micromanagement of what we thought was going to be a high level game.

1871 sounds promising and I think I will check them out at Crisis in Antwerp next week.
