I picked up a set of these, and the cards, at Campaign this weekend. The rule set is named maurice after Maurice de Saxe, Marchel de France in the early/mid 18th century, and cover the period 1690 - 1790.
BTW, coincidentially, my 'French name' at school was Maurice. Did anyone else have to undergo that indignity ? Not only did you have to try and learn that dastardlt tongue-twisting language, but you had to answer to a French name as well ! Child abuse I call it.
Any way. Maurice is a new rule set which interacts with a pack of cards in quire an intriguing way, see this month's Wargames Illustrated for a review. Having read through most of the basic game rules they look quite simple but subtle too.
Anyone with a Seven Years War army fancy giving them a trial run ?

Hi Martin count me in, I did see the review and it sounded interesting, I picked up the Muskets and Tomahawks myself, I couldnt run to both sets of rules. We need Graham, Dave or Mark to give us an opponent, how big an army do we need to make a start?
