Napoleon’s Triumph: getting out the pieces

Pieces

Napoleon’s Triumph comes with 140 wooden blocks to represent cavalry, infantry, and artillery units, 18 metal flags to represent the senior commanders and their staffs, and a dozen wooden markers for bookkeeping purposes.

The wooden blocks are painted either blue or red, to indicate whether the units are French or Allied. Symbols on the pieces indicate their type and strength.

The metal command flags are identified by nationality and name (stickers are provided for marking up the command pieces).

The use of three-dimensional wooden blocks allows for convenient simulation of “the fog of war”, as pieces have their type and strength printed on only one side — this allows each player to see the type and strength of his own pieces by facing them towards himself, while leaving the blank sides facing his opponent.
