A combatant counter represents respectively 1,500 to 2,000 pedestrians and 750 to 1,000 riders on the front and half on the back. One artillery counter represents a hundred guns - of all types and calibers.
The game is played over 13 turns corresponding to a season (spring, summer, autumn), the winter turn is not played.
