Home Forums Horse and Musket Napoleonic IGOUGO or not Reply To: IGOUGO or not


For me it depends on both period and game scope and scale.

For instance, in a tactical Napoleonic game – no, I can’t stand IGOUGO. But, we do play FIW skirmish games commonly using Muskets & Tomahawks which is essentially card driven IGOUGO and I find that perfectly acceptable.

The less dynamic my impression of the period, the more willing I am to accept IGOUGO. We also play Guns of Liberty (American Revolutionary War), which is IGOUGO tactical and that is just fine.

But for Napoleonics and ACW, tactical or grand tactical… too static and thereby restrictive in reactions.
