"We are enjoying your Borodino game which I bought recently, a very nice playable game which really has a lot of action and tension and Napoleonic flavor in only four pages of rules - nice job !" - Steve R.

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 Fleches, and the Shevardino and Grand Redoubts, Cossacks, garrison units and a non-player reaction phase. The game map for Borodino is based on a modified style and color of maps created by historians of the battle in the decades immediately after the battle.

“Of all my fifty battles, the most terrible was the one I fought at Moscow (Borodino).”

- Napoleon

"Overall, I really like it and can see it getting played often. It won’t make that midweek short session unless I play the smaller scenario, but I don’t mind that. It will certainly do for our Friday night face-to-face session, in which I am trying to find games that will play to a conclusion and give a good game. I just don’t see the point anymore of playing a game to get half way through, only to have to pack it up and say ‘well, I think the game was going this way’ etc. Borodino will give a full game and be interesting and engaging, capturing the subject nicely."
