There is a lot of good scenarios for EiA. For example The Revolutionary Wars - scenario and so on. So there might be a lot of things to add for the game, as a patch or as a new product.

I'm ready to pay more for extra scenarios, how are others? I mean as long as game is a EiA

But now, just have to wait for game and hope, that things like basic EiA rules are included in original release...

J-S:

There are an endless combination of scenarios, no doubt. We've thought of the revolution scenarios, conquer the world scenarios, etc. We would probably like to complete the more popular std EiA scenarios. Can anybody tell me which ones those are?

Thank you

As far as I remember -

1805-1815 (Grand Campaign)
1805-1807
1812-1815
1813-1815

The revolutionary war campaign is also from AH, but was added later in an issue of The General.

Patrick Havert had a website with some alternative campaigns and senario rules. From memory they included the seven years war, the wars of the Austrian and spanish secessions and a french revolution senario.

He had a good web site with all this material displayed but last time i checked it wasnt functioning but try

http://members.fortunecity.com/lobodeoro080888/eia/1740scen.html

and/or

http://members.fortunecity.com/lobodeoro080888/eia/

I think if you wish to expand the game in scope and time frame these wars of the 18th century are adaptable to the game system but might require a degreee of "moding"

I would like to see a revolutionary war campaign. The 1788 one from Empires in Harm looks like it captures the flavor of that time very well.

These are what I ment. If Matrix Games sometimes release for example "EiA - French revolutional wars 1792" scenario that needs a basic game to use, I am ready to buy that. If a basic EiA is a good game

For basic game a Grand Campaign is inaf, but if Matrix wants to do extra products in future, please use:
1740
1756
1792
1796

Thanks

Somewhat off topic, but will the optional rules of playing Sweden as a major power be available in the grand campaign?

Hey,

We did a new scenario for EiA, its the Spanish succession War (combined to the north war, was at the same time) the war of 1702. We did a deep research to do this scenario and we based our scenario on another one we found online adapted to the reality. If you'd like to have the scenario just tell me and I can send it to you. As its written in French you'll have to understand French until I translate it in english.

By the way, is anyone here in Montreal and would like to play this scenario this summer ? We currently looking for players.

I don't have my manuel to reference like hlj right now because mine is at home and I'm in a distant land. However, I do believe your missing the Grand Campaign which starts in 1805 but has a different set up than the 1805 introductory campaign.

At the moment we only appear to have the 1914-18 scenario, you know the one where you sit around for months on end with only the occassional gas attack to distract you...

That would appear to be so. However, if you lay off of the mustard, saeurkraut, and sausage, your trench might be more bearable.
Oh! And Fabreeze can also do wonders!
