Commands and Colours
Over the weekend I got a game of this Napoleonic board game I'd heard good things about. Thoroughly enjoyed it, the game played out in under 2 hours including setup. We played in pairs, a novice and someone who had played before. I think we had the advantage as I am a fan of Memoir 44, which C&C is a more detailed version of.
The initial setup, my Brits and Portuguese face the French rearguard holding the central hill.
