Round 2 (Game 1) - Lübeck
Bayernkini (Allies) - Gonzo (French)
7 (25 blocks lost) - 5 (37 blocks lost)

It was an Artillery battle a long time, which killed a prussian ART and weaked 2 prussian ART down to 1 block.
The game was general lost at this time, but a wild running prussian single CAV could then destroy also 2 french ART´s in middle of game,
and this was the coming back time for prussian. Step by step they could weak the french now and after a few french misses in important last turns,
the Prussian could win.

Because of a dropout, 2 parts of logfile

My dice are the hell!

Round 2 (game 2) - Lübeck
Bayernkini (French) - Gonzo (Allies)
7 (17 blocks lost) - 2 (21 blocks lost)

French started with a Short Supply on the prussian left FA and moved his troops forward on left and center (preparing an attack because of a Bayonett Charge).
Prussian could counter twice with a Bombard, which suffers a few casualties (blocks).
French moved his CAV forward then (preparing a CAV charge) and in following turns, the french attack could destroy 2 ART´s
and one french LC could escape for a VP.
Outnumbered the prussian then on their right / center-right, it was only time, to get the last VP for the french.

Logfile again in 2 parts

Game 1

Round 2 - Lübeck

asyncritus (French) - 6 Banners, 29 blocks lost
mantra (Allies) - 7 Banners, 20 Blocks lost

This game came down to the wire. The French started to push for the church and were slowly chipped away and repulsed. They later switched their focus on the hills and easily took them driving away the Lt. Inf. into the town. The French building upon this success kept pushing into the town on their left with success until they were driven off with only the arty units holding the hill heights.

Switching back to center the French were able to take the St. Gertude Church with the use of the Infantry Combat First tactic card, if only for a brief moment, before being laid low by the Prussian Grenadiers. At this point the Banner count was 6/6. The Prussians played the Elan card and activated the Grenadiers and 2 Arty units to range fire on the French in the center to take the win. The last few plays were very anxious for both sides to say the least. A fun tense match. I look forward to switching sides next week

Round 2 - Lübeck

mantra(French) - 7 Banners, 11 blocks lost
asyncritus (Allies) - 2 Banners, 25 Blocks lost

This was the second game of the match. The French pushed the hills hard and gained their heights. Once there they consecutively bombarded the Prussians in the field below. The Prussians attempt to push the French off the heights, but the French Inf. were able to make gains in the field and take the town. This was contested by the Prussians as they sent in their Lt. Cav. to shatter the French masses, but this came to no effect as the French were able to play the battle first tactic card. It seemed the Prussians could only chip away at the French with ranged fire. Their melee came up short.

Once the French had 5 banners, they earnestly started to push into the church and its environs. The Prussians did all they could, but were deeply outnumber and out gunned. The French would not be denied the victory and its spoils.

Both games were fun and well played by both. On to round 3!

Game 1

Round 2 - 412 Lübeck - North Gate (6 November 1806)

Aaron (French) - 7 Banners
Mark McG (Allies) - 3 Banners

French advance across the board, and a desperate struggle for the Church ensued, which the French won at a price. Otherwise the methodological advance of the French pushed the Prussians back and in the end took them down

Game 2

Round 2 - 412 Lübeck - North Gate (6 November 1806)

Mark McG (French) - 7 Banners
Aaron (Allies) - 1 Banners

Keen to get rid of the advanced Prussian LT, a grand battery blew him away, 1 banner on 1st card!
The French cavalry then charged and took down one Prussian battery, and weakened a 2nd. After some more moving, the Cavalry lost 1 unit, destroyed the other battery, and exited the North gate. Tilly masterfully call forward his reserves onto the Prussian base line (a cheesy move..)

Then it was a matter of flushing the Prussians out of the Church, assisted by Aaron forgetting the Iron Will markers.

Round 2 - 412 Lübeck - North Gate (6 November 1806)

Bangla (French) - 7 Banners
gottoman (Allies) - 1 Banner

French advanced in the centre thanks to a couple of fortunate cavalry attacks that wiped out the artillery there. More great dice rolling from the French meant this game lasted less than an hour. Greg was really up against it. the final banner for the French was a breakthrough movement by French cavalry that switched the score from 6-2 to 7-1.

Game 2

Round 2 - 412 Lübeck - North Gate (6 November 1806)

gottoman (French) - 7 Banners
Bangla (Allies) - 2 Banners

Always hard for the French to win this one and keep the Prussians to a single banner, or less. Greg almost did it, though with a lot of losses he had to keep funnelling 1- and 2-block units towards the rear to save losing banners. In the end, the Prussians managed a second one and then it was a matter of time before the French won the game, and without losing another banner too.

Round 2 - Lubeck - North Gate 6 November 1806
Sansmerc1 (French) 7 Banners 24 blocks lost
TLangston ( Allies) 3 Banners 24 blocks lost

Lots of maneuvering to begin the game left the Prussians with a mass art of their left. A bayonet charge by the French made it 3 banners to 2 for France. The Prussians counter with a well timed Bombard CC but didn't kill any French units. I did not have any center cards for the last third of the game and was fortunate that Tony rolled poorly several times. The game ended with a Give them the cold steel CC on a lone leader.

Round 2 - Game 1

TheMP (Allies) 7
Groundeaux (French) 5

The French unleashed a Bayonet Charge with their second card against the Prussians in the church and their supporting artillery. The Prussian INF took down some French INF blocks with them, but both units were overrun. The Prussian FA unit falling to the first dice rolled against it.

For a while the French looked ascendent from this and looked to press the Prussians further. But the tide seemed to change when their 2 x LC were unleashed on the next line of Prussian guns commanded by Yorck. These gunners refused to budge and basically assisted in removing both enemy cavalry units with some support from the single Prussian LC unit as well as their LI also getting involved. From here, the Prussians kept plugging away at their enemy, with Yorck and his guns seemingly the lynchpin in the centre. The French around the centre were eventually worn down, including a leader loss and the Prussians crawled over the line 7-5.

Mark,

Just a quick note to say that Grondeaux and myself will complete the second game of this round on Nov.3rd. He has been away for the first part of the month and I the second part. We played the first match-up in the short window we had between those times. So we'll be 3 days late Mark
