This week friends and I got reacquainted with another old friend, Maurice, the card play rules by Sam Mustafa together with a very nicely prepared collection of Seven Years War, Prussians, Austrians and Bavarians as we played a warm-up game to refamiliarize ourselves with the basic mechanics of play, prior to another larger game later this month.
Once we got into it, all the reasons to love playing Maurice came flooding back and I’m really looking forward to our next game.

Excellent report. I was just thinking that I need to dig out Maurice again and work on the armies for it, so this si the sort of encouragement I need. Well, it will be when I am back in the same country as those armies!05/03/2022 at 11:21 #169565
Hi and thank you, glad you enjoyed the read and feel inspired to get back into Maurice and I hope your estrangement from your armies won’t be to long.

Fantastic looking game. If I had to do it all over again, I think I’d be heavily into 10mm. For me it hits the sweet spot between visual mass and recognizability, as your photos attest to.
That said, our 15mm collections for the SYW, GNW and WSS still seem to work. We’re all huge fans of Maurice for those periods as well. Brilliant, brilliant set of rules that always creates a great story of a battle.06/03/2022 at 10:09 #169614
Thank you. Back in the day it was 6mm, but 10mm is to my mind is a vast improvement on the overall look, whilst capturing the big battle feel when seen in numbers.
I have a vast collection of Napoleonics in AB at 18mm but am unlikely to add to them because my eyes can no longer cope, which I think explains most folks transitions through the scales, that and affordability, with perhaps more disposable income in our latter years compeared with when we start out – just a theory.

A lovely looking game, fantastic SYW eye candy.15/05/2022 at 05:44 #172943Evil DaveParticipant15/05/2022 at 20:06 #172983
Most of the key terrain items and the windmill are from the Total Battle Miniatures 6mm range.
