Unless your current residence consists of living under a rock somewhere, you likely know that this year, 2015, is the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. And as expected there have been more than a plethora of books, films and games gracing the public to honor the event. It is within this environment that NORBSOFTDEV (NSD) has thrown its hat into the ring by expanding its very well received Scourge of War (SOW) series to include Wellington and Napoleon doing battle on 18 June 1815 once more near the sleepy hamlets of la Belle Alliance and Waterloo. In doing so they have taken a plunge into the unknown as the Napoleonic Wars were vastly different in almost every conceivable way than the American Civil War. Thus there were undoubtedly many opportunities to stumble

Strategy gamers young and old understand full well the iconic vision of the Eastern Hordes galloping into fearsome battles across China, the Middle East, and Europe. No student of world history or warfare can ignore the devastating and immense accomplishments of one of the most feared fighting forces in the history of man: The Mongols. The very name brings forth images of massive armies of horse archers and the pillage and capture of cities from Beijing to Baghdad. Unstoppable in their progress, these fearsome steppe warriors make it into almost every incarnation of game that centers around the Middle Ages.

First there was Legions of Steel the boardgame (which I must confess I hadn’t heard of), then French development studio, Studio Nyx, started a Kickstarter campaign to develop a digital version. Alas this was not successful; however, a Plan B emerged with a partnership with strategy games publisher Slitherine and 18 months later the game has finally hit the (e)stores being released for PC (including Steam) and iPad.

Western Civilization Software’s Forge of Freedom is the best grand strategy game of the American Civil War, delving into all aspects of nations at war. However, the tactical mode is extremely abstract. The developer seeks to remedy this with a tactical game, Brother against Brother –The Drawing of the Sword. However, the computer gaming pool is crowded with tactical American Civil War games. What would make this game float or not be eaten by the sharks?

Sometimes great riches can be found in the most inexpensive of wrappers, and so it is with Tercio to Salvo, the very first expansion module to Matrix/Slitherine’s impressive PC game, Pike and Shot. That said, it’s now time for BLUF – Bottom Line Up Front – as some disclosures are appropriate here. I love this game series, something you might have noticed had you read my previous review of the main game itself. Thus if you are expecting a positive review, you would be correct. If you’ve not read the previous review, grab a mug of your favorite libation, surf over to the earlier review and then sit a spell and read. In doing so you’ll not only set the stage for a look at this new expansion, but likely concoct a whiff of gunpowder in the air as well. And you will also start to understand why I love this infuriatingly addictive game.

Regular contributor to Wargamer.com, Jean Marciniak, reviewed it and concluded that “If you have any interest in The Civil War or The Battle of Gettysburg this game is a MUST BUY” – pretty clear! Now jean is back looking at the iPad version of the game. Can it live up to the desktop version?
