What is Blucher?

BOARD GAME GEEK SUMMARY

Blucher is a tabletop game of the great battles of the Napoleonic Wars. Command an entire army from the first reconnaissance of the enemy to the deployment of forces and husbanding of reserves to the bombardment and engagement, and the final commitment of elite shock forces that will shatter the enemy’s weary defenders.

Blucher can be played with miniature figurines and terrain or with “unit cards” on any flat surface. You may in fact use both in the same game, since the cards provide a wonderful “fog of war” that conceals your forces until they are close enough to the enemy to be identified and represented with miniature figurines.

It has been given a rating of 8.2 on BoardGameGeek from 50+ ratings.

Epic Fox Table Top has produced a series of videos that are great at explaining the mechanics of Blucher.
