"Bloody Big Battles (BBB), by Chris Pringle, is a set of miniature wargame rules designed to play large battles during the 19th century. Each unit in the game represents a brigade sized formation (although this can be scaled up to a division or down to a regiment using the games flexible scaling system). While designed with the late 19th century in mind, it does not take much to use them for a wider range of periods (more on this later!). The rules are brief and succinct, while also including substantial number of examples at the end of each chapter. The concepts and mechanics are straight forward and allow players to quickly run their own units and combats within a few turns of playing the game. As the mechanics are pendant, they are also very well suited to multi-player games (something many other rules in this space can struggle with)…."
