Quantity

Field Commander Napoleon is one of DVG's biggest games, as befits the Empire, the Emperor, and his Grande Armée! The game is so massive it requires a 4" high box! 

Wan Chiu created the artwork for this mega game. He got off to a fantastic start with a classic box cover design. 

The game design focuses on the battlefield tactics and Napoleon’s powerful personality. Through political and military cunning, Napoleon swept France to super-power status. In previous Field Commander games, supply was a primary concern. As the Emperor himself said, “An army travels on its stomach.” In this game, Napoleon’s achievements and public adulation drive all facets of game play. Be successful, gain the support of your troops and your countrymen, and you can achieve anything! 

The game spans all of Napoleon’s campaigns from Italy in 1796 to Waterloo in 1815. 

Success depends on the vital balance between strategic and tactical focus. You must move your forces across the maps to achieve your strategic goals, but you must also out-think your opponents on the battlefield. 

You can play each campaign as a stand-alone game, or as part of a linked series of games. 

The 11 Campaigns include: 

First Coalition 1796
Egypt 1798
Second Coalition 1800
Third Coalition 1805
Fourth Coalition 1806
Spain 1807
Fifth Coalition 1809
Russia 1812
Confederation of the Rhine 1813
France Invaded 1814
100 Days 1815 

Each campaign has its own unique set of force counters that accurately detail the divisions and corps that participated in the campaign. 

The force counters are a rectangular 0.625” by 1.25”. This allows the use of Line and Column Formation tactics in battle! Each Force has a troop quality: Elite, Veteran, Line, Poor Line, or Conscript. 

You command the French forces in your bid for world domination! 

You command your forces forward across the continents! You command your forces across the battlefields of Europe, Asia, and Africa! 

When you return, covered in glory and riches, it is you the citizens of France will be cheering!

Field Commander - Alexander the Great
Field Commander - Alexander the Great

Solitaire Game! - Alexander is the second game in DVG's Field Commander series of solitaire strategy games. 

The perfect follow-up game if you liked Field Commander Rommel! 

You take on the role of Alexander the Great in his world-conquering quest to extend the Macedonian empire and achieve personal glory. 

When we started designing the game, our goal was to represent the battles of Alexander the Great, but the more we learned about him, the more we realized our opportunity to explore not only his battlefield exploits, but also the other aspects of his life. True, Alexander the Great was highly skilled in warfare, but he was also a skilled negotiator and at his core was the constant drive to connect with the gods. It was rumored that his father was Zeus, and he spent much of his life seeking the favor and advice of the Greek gods. 

When playing the game, you are placed in Alexander’s footsteps when he comes of age in 338bc, just before the battle of Chaeronea. From that point on, you get to decide where to travel, when to battle, when to negotiate, and when to seek out divine prophesies to guide your actions. 

You are supplied with soldiers and advisors to help you navigate the dangers of the battlefield and the negotiating table. These include Infantry, Archers, Phalanxes, Cavalry, Advisors, Scholars, Courtisans, and Spies. You will craftily combine these resources with your own plans to achieve victory, and glorification. And if you do well, you will be remembered as one of the greatest leaders ever to walk the earth. 

The life of Alexander is divided into several campaigns, each spanning several years. During each campaign, you are given goals, but how you achieve those goals is up to you. Do you enter into battle? Or negotiate? How strong are you? How strong are they? What can you gain? These are all decisions you get to make, and must make well, if you are to live up to the immortal standards set before you. 

The campaigns can either be played stand alone, or linked to play through his entire life. When played as one on-going life, the outcome of one campaign affects your starting situation in the next campaign. 

How you proceed is up to you – The Entire World is Yours for the Taking! 

Wan Chiu and Clara Cheang have created the outstanding artwork seen throughout the game.

Field Commander - Rommel Deluxe
Field Commander - Rommel Deluxe

Deluxe Edition: Solitaire Game! - This edition of Rommel has the same content as our original game. The Deluxe version features mounted maps, extra thick counters, and a new taller box. 

 

Rommel was designed by Dan Verssen and was the first game in our "Field Commander" solitaire series of historical strategy board games. You get to take command of General Erwin Rommel's forces in 3 exciting WWII campaigns: France 1940, North Africa 1941, and D-Day 1944. An easy to use game system manages the Allied movement, combat, and reinforcements. 

The counters are beautifully printed and die cut with full color on both sides. The game box is 9" x 12" x 1.5". Each of the 3 MOUNTED Campaign Map pages are 11" x 17" to provide both a large playing area, and fit nicely on an average table. 

As your units win battles, their stats will increase. 

Each campaign comes with a list of historical options. You can select any of these options to modify the campaign, and its difficulty level. This allows each campaign to be replayed many times and never be the same twice. 

The game comes with "Career" rules that allow you to link the campaigns. The outcome of one campaign affects your start-up conditions for the next campaign.
