QuoteA game is divided into 16 Campaign Seasons for the "grand game." LoH provides two scenarios - the Republican (1792 to 1800) and the Imperial (1801 to 1815) - plus instructions on how to design your own scenario, which can be any length desired. The grand scenario with 6 players takes about 8 to 9 hours.A campaign seasion consists of an administrative phase (the Campaign Season Segment) plus 0 or more In Garrison Rounds and 0 or more On Campaign Rounds (depending on what happened in that Campaign Season historically). Play is broken down into the following phases:Organization of PlayCampaign Season Segment1. The Fair Sex Phase - When using this optional rules, determine changes in the characteristics of a lady of quality in play: her charm, influence, and wealth.2. Money Transfer & Tax Phase: Move money in between one's bank account ("Paris") and person ("Purse"). Tax the money in the bank at 10%.3. Aging Phase: Determine the amount of Health points the player (the "Grognard") loses.4. Assignment Phase: Determine any changes in the Grognard's Army (pre-Imperial) or Corps assignment. This is out of his control.5. Glory Phase: Acquire Glory points for a Grognard who has a Legion of Honor (based on his level in the Legion) and for having a wife and/or mistress with charm (if playing with The Fair Sex).In Garrison Round(s)1. Recovery Phase: Check to see if a wounded Grognard is able to leave convalescence and re-enter normal play.2. Income Phase: Collect income associated with rank and, if well advanced in life, from one's wife, office, title, Imperial Guard membership, and/or level in the Legion of Honor.3. Support Phase: Pay for that expensive wife and/or mistress(es).4. Deck Phase: Compose the deck for the round, inserting any relevant In Garrison Event Cards and the randomly selected In Garrison Cards.5. In Garrison Phase: Act on each card dealt to a player in sequence. This is when duels can take place if the right conditions are met. This is also when a Grognard can try to get his assignment changed.On Campaign Round(s) 1. Recovery & Health Phase: Same as above, but also an automatic decline in health due to the rigors of campaigning.2. Income Phase: Same as above.3. Support Phase: Same as above.4. Deck Phase: Same as above, but for On Campaign Event Cards and On Campaign cards.5. On Campaign Phase: Same as above, but for the On Campaign deck.There are six kinds of cards:In Garrison Event Cards (typically of a political nature)In Garrison Cards (depicting the humdrum aspects of military and personal life while in garrison)On Campaign Event Cards (typically of a military nature)On Campaign Cards (depicting the humdrum aspects aspects of military life while on campaign plus minor military actions)Combat Cards (to determine the battle outcome for one's unit during a major battle)Duel with Swords CardsDuel With PistolsThe above description does not do justice to the period color and even the dark humor woven into the game.

I'm not even going to punch the fucker. If they put the rules online, I'll load it into my ipad and read them on the can.
