A little late but still part of the festive holiday period, I popped over to Fishponds for a game of Muskets and Tomahawks using the Napoleonic army lists.
The game uses an activation deck, with a card for each type of troop on the table e.g. British Line or French Light. Players hold a hand of 3 cards and must play them all in turn before getting a new hand. The subtlety is that your hand might contain cards for enemy units so you are "gifting" them a go at certain points.
When you do play an enemy card you gain Command Points which can be used to activate units instead of playing a card from your hand. So a safety mechanic in case you get mostly enemy cards. There is also spotting ranges that stop too much speculative long range fire.
We played Anglo-Spanish (Guerrilla / British Line) vs French (Voltagier / Line Grenadiers). Units tend to be 6 - 12 figures, with lower quality units having more troops like in their Saga rules. The aim was to secure a wagon of supplies in the village.
