Playing Napoleon’s Triumph with CyberBoard
A game box has been created that allows Napoleon’s Triumph to be played remotely via email.
The game board and all of the pieces necessary for play have been reproduced in fine detail.
Download the game box file below to get started.
Once downloaded, you will need to extract the constituent files from the compressed file (zip) into a folder on your computer. A new game can be started from either the “1 December” or the “2 December” scenarios.
- To learn more about the game or to purchase it, please visit the Simmons Games website. The publisher has also posted the rules (English) online.
- To use this game box, you will need CyberBoard (by Dale L. Larson) installed on your computer.

- Units should be tightly stacked (Ctrl+A) to denote their membership in a corps. Independent units should not directly touch other units if possible.
- The Corps Commander pieces need not be rotated with their units - just point the flag tip at the block of units in the corps. They can be turned over (Ctrl+I) to flip their orientation if the spacing within a locale gets cramped.
- The Uncommitted & Undefeated pieces at the bottom of the board should be turned over (Ctrl+I) when the associated morale deduction is made.
- Artillery Attack markers help track which hour the artillery units fired. They can be removed after the second hour goes by.
- Attack Threat markers are placed on the threatened approach bar.
- The Activated markers (green checkmark) should be placed on any unit(s) that is finished for the turn. Additional uses are: to mark units named as defenders and to mark units that have retreated.
- The Movement Restricted marker is used to show which locales cannot be subsequently entered by corps larger than 1 unit.
- The Corps Command marker should be placed near the corps commander's flag.
- The Independent Command marker should be placed near the unit commanded.
- The “Blocking this approach” marker in the Notes tray can be used as an alternative to rotating units into position when blocking an approach. Place the yellow diamond on an approach and point its pole towards the units that are currently blocking that approach.
