What is A Damned Serious Business?

A Damned Serious Business is a set of rules for playing grand tactical battles from the Napoleonic Wars with 15mm figures.  One of the major influences is Napoleon's Battles, a game system our club used (and enjoyed) for many years.  However, there were enough problems and arguments about NB that we've been in the market for a system that keeps the flavor of the period, but makes for simpler, faster moving, and more fun games.  This is one attempt to build such a system.

A link to the rules is here:

Here is the first page of the ruleset:

It has been a damned serious business... Blücher and I have lost 30,000 men. It has been a damned nice thing — the nearest run thing you ever saw in your life. … By God! I don't think it would have been done if I had not been there.
