    Hi all,

    What I am looking for is an actual game. Napoleonic or American Civil War. I don't want to build a farm or a city, just fight battles. Preferably Hexagonal map based but am prepared to try the modern graphics type thing. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

    Welcome! John Tiller software has several boardgame-type PC games available.

      For your preference, I also suggest John Tiller -although some games have restrictions relating to the number of computers you can download to.

      For modern you have two real choices:

      1. Scourge of War - Gettysburg has a Napoleon mod that is worth checking out.

      2. There is also Histwar:

        The HPS and Tiller' s games are good but too much expensive.

          The games that come to my mind are Napoleon: Total War and Mount and Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars.

          Napoleon: Total war is a grand strategy game like the other games in the total war series.

          Mount and Blade Warband: Napoleonic wars is a first person shooter that allows you to shoot highly accurate and long loading muskets using bayonets. You can play as cavalry artillery, infantry etc. Servers can have up to 200 people so it's pretty fun. I would recommend getting into an organized regiment for a line-battle where strict rules of war are enforced to replicate orderly battles and such.

          Note: You need Mount and Blade Warband and Napoleonic Wars DLC to play the latter game.
