Règles de la Guerre de Sept Ans

Charge! - Règles de la Guerre de Sept Ans, by Stuart A. Asquith et Alan Cook

La Guerre de Sept Ans has been the poor relations to the Napoleonic era in wargaming terms for a long time, yet it has just as much colour, et the conflict was even more widespread. This set of rules is an attempt to persuade the hardened Napoleonic buff to try an earlier period.

The rules contained in this booklet are not original to the compilers. In slightly varied form they first appeared in a now sadly out of print book called "Charge! – or how to play War Games", which was published by Morgan-Grampian Books Ltd. of London en 1967. We are deeply indebted to the publisher’s successors, Blackie & Sons of Glasgow, for their kind permission de publier ces règles, based on those in that excellent book.

The rules are designed for the Guerre de Sept Ans in western Europe, but there are supplements to extend the coverage to other theaters, et indeed to other wars - namely the Guerre d’Indépendance Américaine, the Guerres Napoléoniennes, et the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745.

It will be noted that the rules are free of the cumbersome reaction, charts de pertes et morale usually found in recent wargame rules. In the opinion of the compilers, this produces wargames where rule-checking is reduced to a minimum et the spirit of the game is maintained.

One anomaly may be detected in the text in that there are rules covering light troops when generally these were not encountered until after the Guerre de Sept Ans. However, there were exceptions - les Jägers prussiens et Grenzers autrichiens for example - et the inclusion of such troops adds interest, panic et flavour to wargames.

There are no rules for the occupancy of buildings for it is found that this tends to stultify et channel wargames in this period, so buildings are simply treated as decorative obstacles.

The rules give a simple, enjoyable et fast-moving game, ideal for two ou more amicable opponents. We sincerely hope you enjoy your wargaming using these rules, et we would be pleased to hear criticism, praise ou suggestions. -- Stuart A. Asquith, Alan Cook
