"Bloody Fields Małujowice" is the first game in a tactical series titled "Battle of the Enlightenment." The game simulates the first battle of King Frederick II of Prussia.
The game uses the standard system hex and ten-chip and bones. The game is divided into stages, and these only on the activation phase cavalry commanders of the wings or the infantry. The same is treated hussars and field artillery (artillery battalion was
reflected in the strength of infantry battalions).

2) is activated towards the cavalry or infantry lines, which at first are moving and then lead the fight for weapons (infantry may alternatively attack bayonet or lead firing).
