France 1870

A Note on Copyright

France 1870 is COPYRIGHTED -- NOT Public Domain -- and FREE under the following conditions:


France 1870 is dedicated ...
A. The French and German people in the hope they will never again go to war.
B. to my children Rebecca, Robert, Rohan, and Johanna, in the hope that they may never have to go through a world war:

The more we learn about wars, the better our chances that they will be the LAST wars.

A Request: If you do assemble and play this free game of mine, PLEASE let me know at what you think of it and whether, after more than a couple games, you think one side or the other has an advantage. Thanks!
And now: Here are France 1870 components, to print off and assemble so that it may be played. Players-students will also need a single six-sided die (or chits numbered 1-6, to be drawn out of a hat) for the randomized combat results tables.

More comments by myself and others about the game can (soon?) be read on href="">ConSimWorld and href="

If you are a friend, and/or if you would like to share info and ideas about military and naval history and game designing and cardstock model shipbuilding, and/or you have any questions about France1870 feel free to e-mail me at

Thank you for your interest in the game ....
