Maurice is a delightful combination of tabletop miniatures rules for historical and fictional battles, a limitless campaign system that requires virtually no math or paperwork, and a role-playing game in which the “characters” are officers, units, and armies, whose personalities you create, and whose fates you manage from battle to battle across wars and decades.
This 18th century ruleset by Sam Mustafa looks intriguing, and not just because of the unusual name. The card-driven game mechanism looks fun and challenging at the same time. The possibilities for ‘imagi-nations’ look particularly interesting.
And, finally, an eighteenth-century publication that highlights (in its title and in its evident format) the flamboyantly rococo French of the period, rather than Frederick and his Prussians!
