    Malbrough s'en va-t-en guerre, this set of table-top and campaign rules are designed to be used to represent the Wars of the Spanish Succession.

    The systems are adaptable to any scale between 2mm & 28mm.

    There are two elements to the game: A Campaign game using a set of playing cards and the resulting figure battle.
    The former will give the latter its context and players must be careful to judge that the fight is worth the candle as the epitome of Generalship was the avoidance of risky battles.

    If players wish, a simple system can be generated to create one-off battles, so that each battle is different or to get players used to the novel battle system.

    This Gamebook contains:

    • A brief summary of the period and details of the forces of the participants.
    • A set of battlefield rules that can be used to recreate either the early or late period battles.
    • A4 Coloured Sheet of Counter: Stick to card or foamboard and cut out
    • Weekly Weather Sheet of Counters: Stick to card or foamboard and cut out
    • 2 x A4 Army Sheets: One for each side. Used for placing your contingents and generals on.
    • 2 x A4 Contingent & Army Morale Sheets
    • A4 Year, Battlefield Clock & Victory Point Chart:
