This game is great fun, easy to learn, and plays very fast (as do most card games). It also manages to be a good representation of Napoleonic combat. However, there are a couple of minor problems that prevent it from being a 5-star game:
All in all, I think the game is great--the fact that it's so playable makes up for its minor shortcomings. Anyway if players agree with my characterizations of the game, the problems can easily be fixed by the addition of a couple of minor rules changes.
This is definitely a nice game for those times when you just don't want to be bothered (or don't have time for) setting up a boardgame. It's also great as a solitaire game.
