Yea!!!! Capt. Fletcher Moon!
27 August 2004 | by allibris_3See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite games of all times. Very playable. My husband and I sit down and play hot seat 2 player games on the Multiplayer version of the game on a regular basis and it is a pretty old game now.

The major thing I love, is how many scenarios from history, although not completely accurate are playable from everyside.

A little tid-bit for anyone in the metro DC area. The military adviser in this game is played by Brad Howard, otherwise known as Capt. Fletcher Moon of the Musical/Reenactment group The Pyrates Royale, who are most commonly known from the Maryland Renfest.

Happy playing!
