OBJECT OF THE GAME
The object of the game is to be the first to capture a set number of Victory Banners (usually 5 to 9), depending on the selected battle scenario’s victory conditions.
A Victory Banner is gained for each enemy leader or enemy unit entirely eliminated. When the last block of a unit, or a leader, is eliminated, collect one Victory Banner. In some scenarios, capturing certain terrain hexes, or accomplishing other battle-specific objectives can win additional Victory Banners.
Victory is achieved the instant the last Victory Banner required is gained.
A word about multi-player games: Commands & Colors: Napoleonics is introduced here as a two-player (or two-team) game, with each side leading one or more warring Nations. While some components are designed to facilitate larger scale battles, these additional capabilities are beyond the scope of the core game. Our La Grande Battle scenarios (using a double size battlefield and a La Grande Battle Command card deck) will be the subject of a future volume.
