Outstanding game system, superb components, great period feel with the pieces and the cards. Rules are a little sloppy. Fantastic gaming experience though, hope GMT will do another set of these SOON!

Really enjoying this game. Wanted to give feedback to GMT regarding the counters and maps which seem to be a great advance in quality and I hope they could extend this quality of counter to all their other hex and counter games for the future. The counters are just the right thickness with rounded corners and punched out beautifully. Well done GMT.

The Napoleonic 20 system is a great introduction to traditional hex-and-counter wargames. Fading Glory incorporates 4 games in the system, each of which are very good. The components are high quality (rounded counter corners!), the game is quick to learn, and the battles are interesting and don't bog down. Highly recommended!

Napoleonic 20 Multi-Pack, Volume I 

Fading Glory is the second game (No Retreat - The Russian Front Deluxe Edition is the first) we are producing as part of our strategic friendship/partnership with Victory Point Games, and the first game we are producing from their popular Napoleonic 20 series. The idea for this and future volumes is that we will take multiple existing games from the VPG Napeoleonic 20 series, add an as-yet-unpublished game to the mix, and create a GMT boxed game with 3-4 games in the box, using larger (3/4") counters and GMT production.

The Napoleonic 20 game system from Victory Point Games features lower-level wargame complexity on maps where, generally, 20 pieces or less are in play at one time (total, for both sides).  This creates tense, dramatic and fast-playing situations on the board where higher echelon troop formations (generally corps) vie for position and dominance. Subscribers to C3i have recently enjoyed Jena 20, a game in this series which features eight pages of Standard rules and one-to-two pages of exclusive rules per title.
Veteran game designer Joe Miranda, with developers Alan Emrich and Lance McMillan, have created and refined a highly popular game series that is growing all the time. (Based on Joe's series rules, Alan, Lance, and Steve Carey have each designed one of the games in this multi-pack - in addition to Joe's Waterloo game.) A hallmark feature is the use of narrative random event cards that help “tell the stories” unique to each battle and small campaign. This “friction of war” element, combined with the operational-level maneuvers, combat, and even lulls, provide players a fun exercise in the Napoleonic parry-and-thrust of grand battles as armies close to bayonet-point to see which will break first.


Sample Random Event Card
Morale plays an vital role, as both sides can ‘spend’ this resource to force march their units, help rally stragglers, or commit reserves to a key attack or defense. But look out… when a side’s morale is reduced to zero, it has lost the game!

 Included in this Multi-Pack are:

  • Salamanca 20 (Wellington vs. Marmont, 1812)
  • Smolensk 20 (Napoleon vs. Barclay de Tolly in the near-battle to decide the Russian Campaign, 1812)
  • Borodino 20 (Napoleon vs. Kutusov before Moscow, 1812)
  • Waterloo 20 (Napoleon vs. Blucher and Wellington, 1815) 

Game Components: 

  • Four 17” x 22” mounted  maps ( 2 boards, backprinted)
  • 117  3/4"  Counters (thick, with Rounded corners, like No Retreat)
  • 48 Event cards (12 for each game)
  • One 8-page Standard Rules booklet
  • 4 Exclusive Rules sheets
  • One Player’s Aid mat
  • Two Player Aid charts
