War of the Empires
The battles that changed the future of Europe, with a clever area-based movement system and large, gorgeous pieces.

Battles of 1866:
Frontier Battles

Fourteen scenarios cover five separate battles. At Trautenau on 27 June 1866, Ludwig von Gablenz's Austrian X Corps defeated Eduard von Bonin’s Prussian I Corps using outflanking tactics. But On the next day, the same methods failed when X Corps faced the Prussian Guard at Soor. On the same day as the battle at Trautenau, Karl von Steinmetz’s Prussian V Corps won a bloody battle at Nachod against Wilhelm von Ramming's Austrian VI Corps, and the next day trounced Archduke Leopold’s Austrian VIII Corps at Skalitz. The set concludes with the Battle of Gitschin, where on 29 June 1866 the Prussian First Army defeated the combined forces of Crown Prince Albert of Saxony and the Austrian I Corps.

Battles of 1866:

Holding a three-to-one edge in numbers, the Royal Italian Army advanced confidently into Austrian territory in June 1866. But Austria's crack Southern Army struck first, routing the main invasion force at the Battle of Custoza. The culmination of three decades of archival research, Custoza remains a fast and fun game. Austria ha superior morale, leadership and artillery; Italy's recently-expanded army has numbers but not nearly enough high-quality troops. This game has not yet been published.

Battles of 1866:

The battle that decided the fate of Europe for the next century, as Prussia defeated Austria in a close-run contest. The largest battle Europe had seen up until that time, Koniggratz is also a very large game. This game has not yet been published.

War of the States
The same system as War of the Empires goes to the American Civil War.

Chickamauga and Chattanooga
Two battles in one game: Braxton Bragg's victory at Chickamauga in September 1863 plus the "Battle Above the Clouds" that broke the Confederate siege of Chattanooga. Plus you can combine the two into one campaign game.
