Game 1
Austrian (Mark McG):1
French (plainscape): 6

French Bayonet charged straight into Obersanding. Austrians came forwards on their left, and managed to take their sole banner here before being destroyed. French then annihilated the Austrian right flank as it attempted to take back the village. Game time, 40 minutes.

Game 2
Austrian (plainscape): 0
French (Mark McG): 6

French started with 5 Centre cards (of 5), and ergo attacked up the centre. French Light infantry ate up the Grenzers and an Austrian infantry on the Right.
By this stage I had the cards to respond to the Austrians taking Obersanding and booted them out, knocking off 2 Line in the doing. Austrians responded in the centre, and had a close call with the front most French Light before snatching the final banner on the Left.

Not sure why this scenario has such a close balance rating, because the French seem quite capable here.

Hi Mark, I wonder if the scenario is more even using the original 70 card deck and no tactician cards - I know that is the setup I was using when I played it. Two extra tac cards can make a difference. I don't know how many games were played and results posted using which card set up.

it is possible, but I don't recall any Tactician card play that made a significant difference, except possibly in the first game with the Austrians using Inspired Leadership to get the only Austrian banner.

But once the other results roll in, the picture may change

Sansmerci 6 banners
Mantra 4 Banners

The French had great tactics cards First Strike, Infantry Combat First, and Canister which Chris used them effectively and probably would have won if some of his rolls where better. The action was mainly in the center and back and forth with the banner count at 4 each. The Austrians killed a two block LN in melee and then got a great four hit roll on four dice to end the match. The French would have won on the next turn for sure. Thanks to Chris for a nail biter we have a second game to play next week.
