"Last time I looked at some older sets of rules that might be fun to use for Seven Years War gaming; this time I will be thinking about some more recent rules. This is by no means meant to be a comprehensive review/survey – it's simply a look at the various rules I have picked up in the past few years – and not actually played, I should make clear. Writing this post has been an exercise in looking at the rules, and thinking about how they seem to work, which has been useful for me, at least! I hope others may find some interest and benefit, too.

First 'Maurice', ( published 2012 ) from Sam A. Mustafa. Sub-titled 'War in the Age of Gentlemen and Philosophers 1690-1790', a sentiment I rather like. The name of course , comes from Maurice de Saxe ( 'An original. A thinking man's general' ). It's a nicely illustated softback book of 112 pages, with lots of good clear diagrams and photos of figures – painted much better than I will ever manage, of course!…"

I playtested Nick Dorrell's new Twilight of the Soldier Kings rules for the SYW. It takes a little work to get the hang of it, but it is well worth the effort!
