I reviewed that game and came to the conclusion that an exciting project had been sadly undermined by an incomplete set of rules, which had then been badly translated out of the original Italian. Therefore, when I say that this new game is the product of a Spanish company, with the “in-box” English rules translated direct from the Spanish .

Overall, this game is just okay. My wife and I are fans of Settlers and were excited about getting a travel version. The gameplay is fun for the most part with the exception being the game limits to just 15 turns where the scoring pad shows there's plenty of play left. So, the game feels incomplete when it was actually over.

For example, at the end of the game the Prussians lost a chance to retake Ligny because they had not moved up fresh troops ready for the counter-attack. I think a great deal of the coördination challenge was the fast pace of the game. Players only get 15-18 turns in a day and Ligny starts more than half way through that.
