The classic wooden block wargame:
Like Napoleon himself returning from Elba, this is the original,
classic wooden block wargame based on the Waterloo campaign returning
to WBC in the wake of Columbia’s new improved 4th edition printing.
Although the rules are fairly simple, the game provides for diverse
campaign strategies and tense tactical battles. The WBC tournament
is designed to provide a good learning opportunity for rookies,
yet a high level of competition for veterans. The best of all
block wargames, Napoleon requires a combination of strategic
maneuver on a Waterloo regional campaign map, combined with tactical
battles fought out on a separate battle board!
Napoleon returns to WBC with the release of the new and updated
4th edition. Those familiar with the 3rd edition will quickly
adapt to the new game features. However, the game now plays much
faster (similar to the original 1st and 2nd edition rules) with
a smaller block count, plus popular new features including horse
artillery and a larger campaign map. See the current rules draft
The second WBC tournament of Columbia’s Games 4th Edition
of Napoleon will be a Swiss event where players will play two
rounds to determine the best four records before moving to single
elimination play. Players will bid steps removed from their blocks
to play a preferred side. Come to learn and play, and experience
the best of both campaign strategy and tactical battle resolution.
