I was hoping Google wouldn't take it literally. I guess I just fell off the turnip truck...silly me for trusting humanity.

I'm going to assume anytime the word "porn" is in a google search you may regret seeing some of the suggested images.

I'll take a crack at it:



"A wargame for the Grumblers and those who would like to."


This Historical game proposes to simulate the battle of 14 June 1800 in Marengo (northern Italy) that opposed the army of the Austrian Empire of General Melas, to the French Republican army of General Bonaparte.


The game system is meant to be of medium complexity, while being historically accurate.


The rules, the neat card*, the combat pieces and the specialized dice** that are presented to you have all been designed for this purpose.


The philosophy of the game is one based on the complete absence of stacking for regiments while featuring an unprecedented unit-loss (or could be "step-loss") recording system that is accomplished with a minimal use of markers and tables.


* (not sure what a "neat" card is?)


** "revolutionary dice": as in dice that are revolutionary in design or dice used by revolutionary (era) players?  I suspect the former, thus my suggestion for the change.

Never do a literal Google Image search for "dice porn."

I would change grumbler back to grognard. It makes more sense to English speaking war gamers in the original French.

Would you just order your dice already?  I'm interested in what color and how they look when you get them.

I'll jump right on it.

Hello,

I come to ask for help from the wargame community.
Marengo FES is a splendid wargame, with quite revolutionary material.
You can find it here:
http://wargame-process-edition.com/index.html

I started translating the site with a translator, can you tell me whether the translation is correct ?
There will be 8 pages.

Thank you for your help.
