Wo, wo, wo, wo Waterloo.

 "Waterloo, Quelle Affaire" by River Horse games has been on my table this week.


Designed by Alessio Cavatore it is a right good game and I have played it twice this week.



The only problem with the game is the tiny writing and numbers on the nice big one inch counters. I have had to resort to a magnifying glass mainly during set up because the French set up guide in particular is very hard to see.

I intend to get some of those little sticky paper dots and write the numbers on them to make them more readable.

Here are a few photos of a game...


Blucher arrives on turn five.

The Anglo-Dutch hang on and the French are sandwiched between them and the Prussians. Napoleon is defeated. 

The casualty pile.


Great stuff, for a good review of the game Norm Smith have a look here link

  1. Wow - that would 'fit' very nearly exactly on my hex-table. I think I have an extra row in the 'long' direction. But when I did my Waterloo, I had the 'grain' perpendicular to the battlefront, rather than parallel. Interesting post!

  2. Hi PAUL- Good to hear your fully enjoying your Boardgame. I recall that about the only Boardgame I've played was 'Kingmaker' - with my school mate Richard and that was back in the Summer of 1976...Kingmaker is a great game and I'm amazed that it isn't still being produced now in 2022. Stay well my Friend. Cheers. KEV.
