To experience the maximum enjoyment with these two new Napoleonic game formats, both EPIC Napoleonics and La Grande Battles scenarios are best played using the Command card and Tactician card decks that were part of the Generals, Marshals and Tacticians expansion.
Included in this expansion are six standard sized scenarios that focus on key phases of the battle of Austerlitz, 2 December 1805. This expansion also features 12 EPIC sized engagements and two La Grande Battle scenarios. Also included are two double-sided mounted maps. The EPIC sided battlefield is larger, and at 11 hexes deep by 20 hexes wide, it is almost double the size of the standard size battlefield of 9 hexes deep by 13 hexes wide. When laid side-by-side to form the La Grande battlefield, the battle area is a whopping 11 hexes deep by 26 hexes wide.
Knowing that it is not always easy to muster eight players, the EPIC Napoleonic game is set up to play very well by just two players. Or if players so desire, the EPIC game, can in fact, be expanded to include four and even six players.
EPIC Napoleonic will allow two or more players to enjoy a truly Epic size battle, but it is important to note in order to play most EPIC Napoleonic scenarios, players will need a copy of the Commands & Colors Napoleonic game and its expansions (Spanish, Russian, Austrian, Prussian and Generals, Marshals and Tacticians) This EPIC Napoleonic expansion will only provide enough units and terrain to fill any gaps.
Normally a La Grande Battle game is best played with eight players. Four players will take command on each side. One player, on each side, will again assume the role of the CIC. The other three players will each take on the role of a Corps field commander. Each Corps field commander will command two sections (2 left or 2 center or 2 right) of the six sections that make up the La Grande Battles battlefield. In a La Grande Battles game, each CIC has a hand of Command cards and on a turn must give one card from his hand to one of his Corps commanders. Also on the turn, the CIC must select one card from the Courier rack and give it to one of his Corps commanders. Command cards must be given to the proper Corps commander. Section cards, that state left, must be given to the left Corps commander, center section cards to the center Corps commander and right section cards to the right Corps commander. While tactic Command cards (Command cards with text and no section illustration) can be given to any Corps commanders.
In a La Grande Battles game, each Corps field commander also has his own hand of Command cards. During a turn when the Corps commander does not receive a Command card from the CIC, he may choose to play one of his Command cards from his hand. In addition, if the Corps commander does not like the Command card given to him by the CIC, he can discard it and instead play one of the Command cards he has from his hand.
