Yes, but there is no need to count blocks in the Open Tournament. It is banner only count.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.

Round 3 / Game 1 (Eylau 206 - 8AM to Noon (8 February 1807)
Timothy Phelps - Russian: 7 banners (24 blocks lost)
Aaron Medina - French: 4 (39 blocks lost)

After some initial success by the French pushing up the center, the Russians reinforced with their Grenadiers and were able to eliminate the threat. With the help of two Cavalry Charges, the Russians were then able to force four of the French infantry units into square and slowly whittle them down for the victory. A very fine game and I look forward to the rematch.

Round 3 / Game 2 Eylau 206 - 8AM to Noon (8 February 1807)
Timothy Phelps - French: 6 banners
Aaron Medina - Russian: 7


The battle began with a French push for the center and the French guns. After some initial success, the Russians counterattacked and drove the French from the hills. The battle shifted to an attack against the Russian left. After two attempts to break the Russians, the Russian cavalry put an end to French hopes on their right flank. The battle shifted back to the center, where reinforcements had arrived from the left flank.

Although taking an enormous risk, the French saw a chance to overpower the Russian units at the edge of the hills. In reality, both sides were desperate. Both sides put everything into an all-out attack, with the Russians emerging victorious.

Thanks to my opponent, Timothy, for a fun, intense game!

The most important qualification of a soldier is fortitude under fatigue and privation. Courage is only second; hardship, poverty and want are the best school for a soldier.~Napoleon
