It's a pretty good game (re-release of an AGEOD game from a year or two back). Doesn't have a grand campaign, though.

That's why I won't buy it.

Oddly enough it's my second favourite Ageod game (after the wonderful RuS) for that reason. Keeps the whole thing manageable to deliver an excellent 'historical' feel for the problems of each scenario without having to compromise to accommodate an inevitably un-historic grand campaign - even more so if anyone but the French were to be genuinely playable.

Never could see the point in a Nappy game as unlike the ACW, for example, historically there never was any 'grand campaign'. Unless you include a seriously in-depth political and diplomatic simulation as well it's just creating an unhistoric 'big' game for the sake of it.

That's an interesting point. I was thinking it's a shame there's no grand campaign, but maybe it's not necessary. However, was the naval element not more of a grand campaign?
