At Neuve Chapelle provides a tactical simulation of the World War I battle. The British attempted to reduce a poorly-[removed]defended German salient centered on the town of Neuve Chapelle. Plans were to expand a breakthrough and with cavalry and infantry reserves take the Aubers ridge line. However, poor communication and coordination and the weather conspired to slow the initial British successes and allowed the German army to rush reinforcements into the area. Among other game features, At Neuve Chapelle uses offensive artillery and defensive artillery fire, British command checks, and a unique assault combat mechanic to simulate the bloody struggle.

At Neuve Chapelle "gives a first hand experience of these historical events...gets the job done...as a historical game it is a good game..it is a game I enjoyed."
- from Marco Arnaudo's video review.
One review of the game reported a poorly cut countersheet. That was a rare exception to our excellent print standards and it was unfortunate that the reviewer did not ask for a replacement set of counters or even bother to report the problem to us before doing his review. We do not recall anyone reporting this problem with a Neuve Chapelle order to us and we have sold many copies of the game. However, if you purchased the game (or any title) and experienced this problem, please do let us know and we will ship you a free replacement set of counters.

"...thank you for forwarding this game so quickly - arrived in UK in about a week . I conduct Battlefield Studies and am out to Neuve Chapelle with a group next week. Your game has helped me with my research and I appreciate you making the effort to tackle one of the less known WF battles that, of course, happened 100 years ago today."
