    very good revision of an already great rule set. As a hardcover now it sits also well on the shelf beside my other ESR books.

    A game that allows a player to fight large engagements in a limited area with a limited amount of models

    This the level of gaming that I've been looking for . The mechanics of these rules represent the time period . However, the rules need to be a little better organized. I found them hard to follow and a little confusing at some points. I would suggest a companion video explaining the working of them. Once you understand these rules they are fairly simple and quick to play.

    ESR Series 3 Rulebook

    Posted by Hugh on Apr 14th 2022

    Another very well crafted and assembled product, the text is generally very clear and well written. I highly recommend this game and all the kit that can come along with it.

    Rules and associated player aid cards

    Posted by Kevin on Apr 13th 2022

    Not played version 3 yet, but it looks fabulous. Just what is needed in Napoleonics today - rules that allow you to play entire battles and not just corps-level actions. Only complaint is that there are no leader and unit cards yet available for French allies, Prussian, Austrian, Swedish, Ottoman, or Spanish armies. Cannot wait until these are available.

    Et sans résultat! Series 3

    Posted by Christopher Sweet on Apr 3rd 2022

    Just as the best Napoleonic naval games require that you know how to "sail" your ships by the wind, plan ahead, and maintain your battle line; in ESR you must know how to deploy your corps, divisions, and assets like artillery to take the best advantage of your army's strengths on the given terrain. You must decide when to commit your reserves, when to shelter your battle-worn formations, and most of all, how to stay alive on the battlefield.

    The game's name is misleading: There is always a decisive win or loss, but it may not be the "battle of annihilation" you're hoping for.

    The game turns on your judgment, not on the roll of the dice. There's always plenty you can do to compensate for bad dice rolling.

    The French are not "gods," but you have to know your own strengths and weaknesses as well as the enemy's, if you play as the French or against them.

    In truth, battles of ESR3 are lost or won by the player. No bad situation is hopeless until you've been reduced to exhaustion. That's why it's important that you keep a reserve.

    Pendulum swings are slow and steady, so I've seen little or no cursing the dice; the slow erosion can creep up on you, however. It's a game of reading the tipping points.

    I recommend trying it with whatever minis you have, or even cardboard counters, just to learn how it plays.

    Et Sans Resultat! Series 3

    Posted by Maurice Hopkins on Apr 2nd 2022

    The rules simplifications in Series 3 make the game much easier to understand and much more playable. The rules are much shorter, the background much deeper, and movement of the uniform illustrations to the scenario books makes for a far less daunting experience. The streamlining of rules will make this landmark Napoleonic game more accessible and appealing to a far wider audience.
