Quatre Bras Can Marshal Ney get II Corps into action and seize the road to Brussels, or will The Duke ultimately funnel enough reinforcements into the crossroads to stymie Napoleon's "Perfect Plan"? PLAYED ON ONE MAP
Ligny Can Napoleon destroy Blücher's army in one massive battle, so that he can turn and concentrate on les Anglais, defeating each army piecemeal? Or will the wily Prussian player wreak enough havoc on the French and escape with his army to fight again? PLAYED ON TWO MAPS
June 16 Combine Quatre Bras and Ligny into one giant battle and see whether you can figure out how to defeat two armies at once -- a great example of the use and limits of command. PLAYED ON TWO MAPS
Wavre Can you, as the Prussian III Corps commander, Thielmann, hold the river line against Grouchy from a possible link-up with Napoleon? PLAYED ON ONE MAP
June 18 This massive battle allows gamers to explore the full range of possibilities that ranged from Wavre to Mont. St. Jean, complete with variable entry for Grouchy. Does he finally "ride to the guns"? Great for multi-player gaming. PLAYED ON THREE MAPS
