Semi Final 1
401 Schleiz (9 October 1806)
Mark McG (French): 1 banner, 14 blocks lost
Jim (Prussians): 5 banners, 7 blocks lost

Pretty miserable game for the French, started well moving into Schleiz easily, two easy banners. Then the Prussians conducted a Bayonet charge and threw me out. Multiple Infantry combat first cards to thwart my efforts to hold, and French couldn't hit a thing. Meanwhile the Right flank cards were building up, and the Centre was struggling to get cards. The French horse artillery and cavalry eventually came up, but couldn't make much headway.

2 French infantry and 1 cavalry destroyed, and 4 Prussians exited, vs 1 Prussian infantry eliminated.


Semi Final 2
401 Schleiz (9 October 1806)
Jim (French): 1 banner, 17 blocks lost
Mark McG (Prussians): 5 banners, 8 blocks lost

essentially the same report, French couldn't hit squat. I very nearly conceded on my opening hand of 3 Probes out of 4 cards, and 3 Left section cards and 1 Right.
The main difference was Jim took Schleiz for his banner, and would have won the semi if he put down the garrison.

2 French infantry and 1 cavalry destroyed, and 4 Prussians exited, vs 1 Schleitz banner.

not the worst Exit scenario I have played, but still a luck of the draw in terms of cards.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.
