Round 1 Game 1

EZPickins (French) 8 banners
Scipio (Allies) 5 banners


The French launched the initial attack on the left and took the village on that flank. We then assaulted the center village while the Allies reclaimed the other one. The rest of the battle was mostly fought just outside the central village with heavy losses on both sides. Cavalry were heavily involved from both sides and infantry were forced into squares which especially hindered the Allies. Gyulai was the finally casualty to secure the French victory.

It was a back and forth affair that could have gone either way. We were both rusty and I showed it. Fun game with a fine opponent.

Round 1 Game 2

EZPIckins (Allies) 8 banners
Scipio(French) 2 banners

My Allies had good day against the French this time. He moved his artillery to the front but lost two early to ranged fire. Switching then to assaulting the villages luck favored me and I was able to withstand his attacks and inflict heavy damage. Losing two leaders made it harder for him as well. The final result indicates how bravely the French attacked but it was not their day.

Game 1
Mark McG (Austrians): 8
Stephen (French): 3

All the action was on the Allied left, French cavalry began approach, giving the Allied cavalry an opportunity to setup. Austrian infantry and artillery bore the initial brunt well, and the Austrian cavalry charge riposte was magnificent. From there it was unrelenting cavalry grind, all the Austrian losses were cavalry, and most of the French losses. All he villages still in Austrian hands.

where might i find the fan scenario below? I am getting this when i open the file:

- This game was saved with extension 'CCN_Fansscenarios3' loaded. You do not have this extension loaded. Place the file into the 'C:\Users\Steven Duke\Downloads\CCNapoleonics3_42_ext' folder to load it

That said, it does appear to operate normally without the fan extension.
