Starting when the smoothbore musket became the primary weapon for Infantry in the 1690's , to the end of the era when Smoothbore Musket's were being converted to rifled muskets or being discarded for more modern weapon's in 1862 during the American Civil War. These rules are designed to capture the flavour of the war's or campaign's from 1690 – 1866 with the subtle changes and innuendoes . The Wars covered by these rules are the League of Augsburg, War of Spanish Succession and the Great Northern War. They are also designed to be easy to use , fast flowing and capable of covering small and large scale games . Happy gaming .
