On To Paris! uses a wargame system adapted from Victory Games' “The Civil War” to simulate the grand events of the Franco Prussian war (1870-71) and challenge players to control the leadership, organization and military operations of Armies and Corps during the later 19th century.
On To Paris! simulates both phases of the Franco Prussian war; the German invasion of France in 1870 and the German conquest of France in 1871. Designed for two players, On To Paris! is also suitable for solitaire play. Nine scenarios include an ‘early start’ plus a full length campaign game. Players can also pick any scenario as a starting point and determine their own period of the conflict to simulate.
On To Paris! is a fast moving competitive one map game where players do their best to control their forces and where every decision creates excitement and tension. The game system features interactive game play with flexible initiative and variable turn length as well as extensive defensive player reaction ability. The game puts players in charge of all the famous Corps and Army leaders of the Franco Prussian war which are all rated for their individual leadership qualities and occasional unique characteristics like resistance to following orders.
