BelloLudi is a small publisher from The Netherlands who specialise in fast and fun rules. This is because we want to have as much people as possible to experience this great hobby. The games are designed as a multiplayer games but will work just as fine with only two players or even solo. BelloLudi rules are intuitive and easy to learn, yet offer enough variation for seasoned wargamers. Hopefully, playing the game will encourage you to create your own armies. If you are just getting into the hobby, check out the skirmish rules. They are designed with armies of roughly 25-30 miniatures per side. So one box of Wargames Atlantic excellent miniatures per side will be enough.

BelloLudi Big Battle (Strategy) games

BelloLudi Big Battle games are designed for multiplayer battles using a large amount of miniatures. They are designed to be fast and fun and easy to learn for non-wargamers. BelloLudi designed these rules especially for team-building purposes.

This ruleset simulates battles in the period of 1660 to 1721, the age in which the ‘Queen of the Battlefield’, the Pike, was gradually phased out. Refight the battles of the Marlborough, Turenne, William III, Charles XII and others. Units were drawn up in line in order to maximise the effect of their weaponry. The musket, the type of gun that the troops were increasingly supplied with, was only accurate on short distances. During a volley all muskets were fired simultaneously at the same target. Off course, this required iron discipline of the men. Soldiers of that age were drilled to fight formed up into line formation and to march in columns.

The rules use the so-called Commander Die, to create friction in the games. The Commander dice are sold separately. However, instead of the Commander Dice you can use a standard D20. Just read 0=B, 1-4=0, 5-9=1, 10-14=2 and 15-19=3

Cards and Commander Dice can be purchased at: www.belloludi.nl/winkel

So onward, to glory! And, of course: have fun!
