GENERAL DE BRIGADE DELUXE EDITION AMENDMENTS.
General de Brigade has been revisited and revised. Much thought has gone into virtually every rule mechanic with a view to enhancing and accelerating game play.
General de Brigade rules remain quick to learn and provide for fast, historical games with a minimum of record keeping. The General de Brigade core game mechanisms remain but the Deluxe Edition is however, a slicker animal than its predecessor.
The reworking of the rules followed a desire to avoid unnecessary and continual reference to charts and the amendments to such areas as command, melee and morale now significantly reduce some of the need for chart referencing, so speeding up game play appreciably.
In addition, generals are now graded as to their ability and this directly impacts on their capacity to command on the battlefield. For example, the number of charges they can order per turn is now linked to their ability and this effects the timing and deployment of attacks, so players will notice the greater use of attacks en echelon and less reliance upon massed column formations.
The key challenges in playing General de Brigade Deluxe are command and control, correct formations, (for both battalions and brigades), and appreciating or compensating for particular national traits.
