Kevin Zucker (Operational Studies Group) is back!

Good news for all Napoleonic wargamers.
Operational Studies Group ( is back in business after a small break. Kevin Zucker is designing THE COMING STORM, a new Quadrigame centered around the War of the Fourth Coalition. October 1806 - June 1807.

Taken from the

JENA-AUERSTÄDT 13-14 October 1806
PULTUSK/GOLYMIN 24-25 December 1806
EYLAU 7-8 February 1807
FRIEDLAND 13-14 June 1807

These four games explore the major battles of 1806-07, where the French Army encountered two different opponents with different capabilities, from the leadership-challenged Prussians in Saxony to the chaotic battle conditions in winter against the Russians. Based on OSG's Special Studies, which provide a turn by turn narrative of the four battles. Each game shows the approach to the battlefield on the day before battle. The Jena-Auerstädt game has both battlefields on one map and allows both sides to re-deploy before battle. Set at the scale of Napoleon's Last Battles-525 yards per hex and one hour turns-the game retains the Command System of Commanders and Corps Officers.

Napoleon's Last Battles System, following Four Lost Battles: 525 yards (480 meters) per hex, 1 hour per turn, 500-800 men per strength point. Each game lasts about 40 turns.

Four 22 x 34" full-color maps
Two Rulebooks (36 pages and 24 pages)
One 2" game box
Two counter sheets = 560 units
Three player aid sheets
Four player aid cards
Two decks of 50 playing cards = 100 cards

Kevin is taking now pre-orders with a 30%-off the retail price, at $92.00 (plus shipping). The Quadrigame is scheduled for September 10, 2010.
