Napoleon in Europe - 1805 return

Every once in a while I get a wonderful request from one of my sons to play a favored game of mine.
the 1805 scenario features France and Spain vs. the 3rd Coalition of England, Russia and Austria

Napoleon In Europe, by Eagle Games.
the board is TRULY massive - more than covering the entire dining room table


It is a mammoth board, with 20mm scale miniatures of the troops, that I have added the ships to in order to bring the whole surface of the map to life.
by October 1805, the north coast of Spain had been invaded and French shipping was trapped in port

early on the French side had convinced the Ottomans to join in their cause and the Russians came to aid the Austrians on the Hungarian plains

While we only played a few hours and a number of distracting work phone calls pulled me away at times I was still pleased with the interaction and connection I was able to have with my son.

the Russians were going to be busy with the Turks ...
It is always great to spend quality time with my sons.
