"Closing the Trap in Russia, 1812"
Napoleonic 20 #4 Expansion Kit
Designer Kim Meints offers a fascinating Expansion Kit for Borodino 20 - Berezina 20. It examines Napoleon’s Russian campaign in 1812. When the Tsar refused to negotiate terms, the French Army retreated back to Poland in the dead of winter, forced to cross the Berezina River with the Russians in close pursuit. One player commands the French army of Napoleon, while the other leads the Russian armies under Kutusov, Tchichagov, and Wittgenstein..
Note, Berezina 20 is not a ‘stand alone’ game. You must own a copy of Borodino 20 to use this expansion kit.
