Az Albuera & Vittoria egy nagyon összetett társasjáték, 2 játékos részére, az átlagos játékidő hosszú, akár 2.5 óra is lehet. A társast, a bonyolultsága miatt, csak 12 éves kortól ajánljuk kipróbálni. A játékmenet erősen épít a hatszög-rács és a szimuláció mechanizmusokra.

"Albuera is a simulation of the Peninsular War battle of that name. The game is for two players. One commands the French forces and the other the Allied troops of the Spanish, British and Portuguese. Each player in turn maneuvers his troops on the map according to the restrictions of terrain, leadership, and morale, trying to cause or avoid combat between adjacent units at the end of each movement phase. Artillery can bombard at a distance, with range and target density effects, and a new game-system shows the difference between the traditional arms of cavalry and infantry. The infantry commands slug it out at close musket attrition while the cavalry looks for broken or demoralized targets for their 'death or glory' charges."
One 17" x 22" blue on tan map, 26 red British, 16 white Spanish, and 29 blue French units, played in 14 turns.
