Game System: Black Powder Napoleonic
Game Description
The year is 1812 and after four years of war in the Peninsular, Lord Wellington is finally gaining ground and pushing the French out of Portugal and back across Spain.
Napoleon meanwhile has been busy in Russia and so troop numbers are getting a little stretched, making a strategic retreat the only real option.

Awaiting reinforcements the French force have entrenched themselves in the small port town of Torreguadiarro to the west of Gibraltar. Local Spanish forces have struggled to push the French out of the town, and not wanting to leave a threat to the rear of his advancing army, Lord Wellington orders a Marine relief landing of British And Brunswick troops to aid the locals.

Captain Hornblower commands the Frigate HMS Cyane, whilst Captain Mead commands the brig HMS frolic, which also has a few Spanish marines from Gibraltar on board and a Spanish gunboat in tow.

The game starts with the British forces just about to launch the first of their gunboats to protect the landing boats as they make for a landing.

What happens next will become your history.
