Waterloo 200


The sun rose on the morning of 18th June, 1815. Napoleon Bonaparte breakfasted with his generals at Rossomme on the Brussels's road. The conversation returned to the weather; It had poured rain throughout the night and Drouot, the commander of the Emperor's artillery was worried about the effect on his guns. Napoleon acquiesced to a delay in starting the attack. This was the first of many fateful decisions to be made on that day...

Waterloo 200 is a new concept game covering the epic Waterloo Battle fought in Belgium in June 1815.

Developed on wooden blocks, over a colorful 86x64 cm mapboard, 400g thick.

The over 200 wooden/plastic components have been created by the best Italian artisinal industry and painted "A buratto", a technique usually adopted for painting car parts and accessories.

Historical Background
On June 18 1815, Napoleon's Armée du Nord and a coalition led by Wellington, clashed over the plains of Waterloo in Belgium for a decisive battle.
Waterloo is a game for two or three players, one controls the French Army and the other one/two control the Seventh Coalition.
Although based on history, players in command of the two sides can modify the evolution of the battle and of the history in the Europe of XIX centuries.

Reviewer: Neil Parry from UK   5 Stars
I bought this after watching a demonstration on YouTube. I cannot recommend this highly enough. Both myself and my opponent enjoyed the 'fog of war' aspect where you can see the enemies blocks but have no idea what they are. It made for some fun (if nerve racking) games. The gane mechanics also work well, making you think about your command and control. My only criticism is the board that is supplied which is card. It is fine but I am not sure how well it will cope with use. I went to the VentoNuovo website and bought the 'Mounted Map'. This is on much thicker card and will be more durable. I would also recommend the video tutorials for this by the games designer which can also be found on their website and YouTube
