Hi guys,

It looks like yesterday when I decided to group all C&C website under a single web domain (commandsandcolors.net)... but a full year has passed!

A single domain has the great benefit to ask for a single renewal so I'm here asking for your contribution to keep this website free, updated and without annoying ads!

Feel free to contribute in every way you decide using the PAYPAL icon on  the top-right corner.

Support Us 

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely

Alessandro

I'm cross posting this message on all other C&C website.

Hi guys,

I've changed a little bit "top menu".

After login the right most link will be changed in "user" menu with the following "submenu":

  • Your Profile
  • Played Games
  • Personal Messages
  • Submit an article
  • Logout

These should be "self explanatory"... :D

I've also tried to introduce "Played Games" as a sort of "own played game record". Every users should see his own played games.

Let me know if you'd like to have more details under this menu.
Regards
Ale

CCN Website Launched

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 0.00 (0 Votes)

Welcome to all Commands & Colors: Napoleonics fans!!!

Some times ago I've read some thread over BGG talking about "missing CCNapoleonics.net" (after the satisfactions around CCAncients.net). I've thought about it and after receiving permissions directly from GMT Games I've decided to create the CCAncients.net "brother".

As previously suggested in BGG threads I've decided to keep them separate (so CCAncients.net users will have to register again over here, sorry!) but Ive kept most of the features like Downloads, Scenario Results, Forum, Rules, ecc... trying to improve them.

I'm completely open to add new features or better ones, so don't hesitate to write them down in the forum.

Hope you like and enjoy it as we all did on CCAncients.net website.

Welcome to a new scenario designer: Keith Barker!

This is a modified Quatre Bras scenario that has been inspired by William Barnes Wollen's painting of the battle: Black Watch at Bay.
To this end the French lancers have been added and one of Picton's units upgraded to GR to represent the highlanders. The crossroads was vital so now the French must capture it in order to win. Kellermann's Cuirassiers and Cooke's Foot Guards are no longer available at the start of the battle.

2008 - launched www.CCAncients.net website
2011 - launched www.CCNapoleonics.net website
2013 - launched www.CCSamuraiBattles.net website

Right now these websites are full with every available expansion (as to say units, scenarios, rules, faqs, online game modules).
We have 564 scenarios on CCA, 107 scenarios on CCN, 20 scenarios on CCS.
In the past months I've also tried to cut off some of the continuous "spam attempts" and sadly I have unwittingly created login problem to some of you... I've also managed to resolve them but I'll take this opportunity to apologize with you.
