Song of Drums and Shakos

"Song of Drums and Shakos" by Ganesha Games is a small unit skirmish game set in the Napoleonic wars and based on the award winning "Song of Blades & Heroes" rules. SDS can be played with as few as half a dozen figures a side and focuses on the small scale raids, foraging and other daily brushes with death that form so much of the action in the Sharpe novels and similar. Come along and capture or defend a farmhouse overlooking a vital bridge, storm a small outpost or defend the same, when the line collapses can you get the standard to safety? With 45 min to an hour per game you can do all these in a day.
