Website dedicated to Frédéric Bey wargames and articles
The Jours de Gloire series is dedicated to Napoleon's victories and to their 200th anniversary celebrations.
The original rules were the result of a close collaboration with Richard H. Berg in 1997 (Victory rules that became Glory! for ACW and Triumph & Glory for Napoleonic) and with Marc Bransdma (French adaptation). Jours de Gloire has now been living on its own for several years, capitalizing on the experience of more than 2500 games played in tournament during the yearly Trophée du Bicentenaire.
Marengo 1800 has been listed as nominee for 2000 CSR Awards Best Magazine Published Boardgame.
Three Days of Glory has been listed as nominee for 2021 CSR Awards Best Napoleonic Board Wargame.
In 2001, Jours de Gloire Campagne rules were developed to cover another game scale (operational level).
