toganalper 7 : plaınscape 5
toganalper lost 15 blocks : plaınscape 30
It was very interesting to play with the new rules. The dice roll was one by plainscape after 3 tries. Pl opted for the extra card whereas I, toganalper opted for the extra leader, planning to form an extra cavalry wing.
Plaınscape went for the additional shooting power with two slingers, I went for the extra mobility together with the ldr, to overcome the command card shortage.
I opted with the additional moves to bring the heavys upfront and formed a cav group in the right flank. The fight started at the center. And actually all the fighting happened always at the center. Getting the cav together and at a good striking distance. I draw the cav charge which helped to get the game to my side

That was very quick, bloody and... hilarious game. Both of us opted for extra card, Mark took 2 LS, and I LI and W.
We moved in center quickly - line command, double time, leadership any section. So we very quickly started to fight. And then strange things begin to happen - Mark lost leader on lc2, I lost a leader on lc2, then I lost my HI in range on 1d. The tide was turning but definitely I had better card - like FS or Mounted Charge and Mark's lack of center cards was very painful.
The MC card finished game, although previous attack on MI finished almost in disaster.
- if you want to remove the annoying "Extra" label just right-click on the unit, select "Label" from the menu and delete the text. Press Enter and the label will disappear;
- I don't know if people is ware of this but the last version of the module (3.3) contains a "solitaire" option. If you select it when watching a log file, you will be able to inspect both players hands.
