Game mechanics: Waterloo

I hadn’t heard of this game before. Waterloo has some interesting game mechanics.

About the game:

  • RTS
  • Play from the point of view of a commander on the battlefield (literally).
  • Move your HQ to get to a better position.
  • Orders are dispatched by messengers in the form of written notes (literally! It has a text interface!).
  • Messengers take time to arrive and can even be killed en-route.

Four words: HOLY SHIT THATS AWESOME.
