@ Chad - yes, all comments on the io group please.

@mmcv - my own solo playtesting has been done with SYW figures. Luckily I have friends with Napoleonic armies.

@FierceKitty and Orcs - I hate to be PC, but can we leave the Essex girls thing alone? I'm here for the wargaming stuff.

Cheers, Keith.

groups.io is the replacement for Yahoo groups except for the fact it works.....

I know it's easy to sneer, but I was a member of a dozen or more Yahoo! groups and never had a problem.

Although I rarely used the web interface - just treated them as email lists.

Raider4 - I started out using a Yahoo group for this set of rules (as I had done for HoW), but found Yahoo sadly in decline. Posting photos appeared to be impossible, and there were other very basic glitches. I was glad to see that groups.io offered a rather more useable alternative. The last I heard, Yahoo were closing down. Or rather, their groups were closing down.

Yeah, the caveat to my statement is they worked fine, until Yahoo! decided to basically shut them down, what, two years ago now?

I enjoy a bit of Napoleonics, have signed up, and look forward to the day when I am approved.

Contrast with the tiny goblin's school "Portal".
Still attempting to get a working account after 4 weeks trying.

If anyone who has applied to join the group hasn't been approved yet, let me know. As far as I know all applications should have been processed.

Thanks, Keith.

I'm happy to endorse the choice of groups.io. Yahoo effectively shut down my BBB Yahoo group in December, so we migrated everything to groups.io. That all seems to be working fine, plus we got a surge of new members.

Keith, best of luck with your new rules!

Thanks Chris. The continued interest in BBB is a tribute to their quality and originality.

Well, thanks, Keith. I can say the same for HOW. (I've been reading up a bit on Frederick the Great lately - might have to get John M to lay on another HOW game for us, now the OWS club is back in action!)

Following the successful demise of the Rubarbian Forces in our PBEM (see BatReps for AAR) how can I not join this group? Application sent in and awaiting entrance ;-)

I'm wondering what the acronym will be for these rules? Gamers love to identify their rules with TLAs etc:

Does it need the historical background?

I think it will, these may be the only rules a non-Napoleonic Gamer has. Imagine someone from the 40k Universe landing at Waterloo with no background as to what's going on ... probably think it's a rather aggressive Morris Dance with all those uniforms and wooden sticks.

I've found the historical overview useful.
