In adapting his multi-award-winning The Napoleonic Wars game system, Mark G. McLaughlin creates a furiously paced, card-driven, and battle/siege-intensive strategic/operational game of Wellington's campaign to drive the French from Spain and invade France itself. Wellington is a game easily played to conculsion by two, three, or four players in an evening or an afternoon.
Players represent the British, Spanish, and French armies of the North and South. they fight their foes and compete to gain glory in the conquest or liberation of Iberia. When armies collide, battle or siege-related cards may be played and then dice rolled to resolve conflict, inflict casualties, and possibly gain loot. Some cards confer special advantages such as interceptions from two Dutchies distant, raise or eliminate pieces, or affect the course of the broader world-wide war with consequent impact onteh Spanish theatre.
