Product Description

Theme:      Franco-Prussian War     

Folio Version.

Von Moltke's Triumph: Fall of the Second Empire, 1870 is a two-player game simulating the first decisive campaign of the Franco-Prussian War. Under Helmuth von Moltke the Elder, the German states used superior logistics, advanced artillery, and a strategy of envelopment to terrorize the sluggish and unprepared French. Historically, it ended with the capitulation and capture of Napoleon III after a mere five weeks. By designer Tom Russell (Blood on the Alma), the game slants historically but is intended for competitive play: the French will almost always lose the war, but a good French Player can win the game.
