Double win for French in two different battles ending 6-5 both times. Interesting and fast scenario for half an hour (top).

Just got beaten by British player 7-0. No luck in cards and dice for French.
Pretty devastating British win. :)

I'll say.. it only plays to 6 banners.. they had overkill

Double French victories. It could have been with a flawed strategy, though. Overload the French command structure by forcing them into square and maintaining a threat. Then, look for infantry in line and pick them off. The trouble with this is that the central woods and the French cavalry make it tougher for the British cavalry to maneuver as easily as they could. I'm going to revisit this one since there are recorded British victories noted here.

Played this scenario twice tonight. Went 6-1 British then 6-5 French. 2 totally different games with each player playing the same side twice. Shows what a difference cards and dice can make to the same set up. British quickly whittled away both French squares in the first playing taking a few losses then got aggressive with their LC and took on the French cavalry. After an even exchange of blocks the Brit played Rally and got 4 horses in the roll. The lucky roll which rebuilt 2 depleted Brit LC then allowed them to continue the charge and take out the 2 French LC. (5-1). the French never got back into the game.

The second playing had the French all aggressive at the start and they took the first honors after rifle and artillery fire eliminated a Brit HC. After finding the French squares hard to whittle away the British cav went for easier targets and soon had 4 French LI in square and Foy plus the artillery out of the battle (2-2). Further aggression by the French HC had the British LC reeling and despite taking out a French LI it was soon the British on the back foot looking desperately for quick kills to try to get back into the game (5-3). despite getting a second French LI (5-5) the British lost it when the French HC charged home and routed a 4th Brit LC with 3 swords in 1 roll to win a tighter and more exciting 2nd playing.

French give up on the 2 infantry units in square - win is made possible if you can hunker the rest down in and around the woods, whilst the cavalry ride back to the rescue. British cavalry need to try pin down a couple more infantry, and pick a couple more off if possible before the French eliminate too many of them. A close scenario based on the 3 plays I’ve had.

French win 6-0 with a cavalry charge whilst infantry stayed out of trouble (helped by fight-first TC and a double retreat). A Tactician Card an easy sacrifice to position leader so that cavalry could be brought into action. British should not waste time attacking the squares at first, just keep them in square, put other infantry in square if possible and counter the French cavalry.

There are in Europe many good generals, but they see too many things at once. I see one thing, namely the enemy's main body. I try to crush it, confident that secondary matters will then settle themselves. ~Napoleon
