WARGAME : The Sepoy Mutiny
The Sepoy Mutiny (The Indian Rebellion) is a strategic game that uses the same mechanisms as The Belgian Campaign, 1815 (VV124) and The Eagles of the Danube (VV144).
On 10 May 1857, the massacre at the British garrison in Meerut by indigenous troops of the Bengal Presidency erupted and spread to the north of the Indian subcontinent. It took more than two years for the British to regain control in the revolting provinces. Once the rebellion was squashed in 1859, the British Crown was forced to launch a series of major reforms to modify its system of government in India, notably by dissolving the East India Company, to which power had been delegated up until then.
The game allows you to experience at an operational level the first year of conflict during which the main military operations occurred.
Will you be able to free India from the yoke of the British? Will you be able to suppress the rebellion and take back control of Queen Victoria’s crown jewel?
