Description
Refight the largest naval battle of the Napoleonic Wars using the lovely 1/1000 scale Sails of Glory ship models. It is 1805 and a British Royal Navy Fleet under Admiral Nelson must defeat a combined French and Spanish fleet under French Admiral Villeneuve to save England from invasion by Napoleon. Will the better quality of the Royal Navy defeat the larger size of the combined allied fleets? This game will put each player in command of a squadron (6-12) of Ships of the line (the battleships of the time). The rules are fast play and there is no record keeping, just dice and markers on the ship models. No nautical knowledge or understanding how to sail is required but proper use of period tactics does get rewarded.
