At the heart of The Invasion of Russia (1812) are innovative and simple mechanics intended to encapsulate key elements of campaign warfare during the Napoleonic period; sweeping manoeuvres, feints and deceptions, forced marches, the greater flexibility and cohesion of seasoned troops, and the crucial importance of logistics. This is a very playable game with two sheets of large die-cut counters, one map of Russia and bordering states, at a scale of about 33 miles per hex, 15 days per game-turn. Each unit counter roughly represents a division.

The Invasion of Russia (1812) is very much a wargame, with an emphasis is upon the challenges of leading and co-ordinating armies during the Napoleonic period. Victory will generally go to the player who is best able to formulate and implement a cogent strategy aimed at attaining well defined objectives, whilst allowing a margin of error for enemy action and ill-fortune.
