Hi,

I recently started playing cc napoleonics here in Munich and I love the game. I am a newcomer ,my fellow player introduced me to the game and he is an experienced newcomer. I have bought the Prussian Expansion Set and I am wondering what is a good balanced game to play in about three hours.
What do you think about Laon ( French left ) or Grossbeeren? Thanks for any suggestions!

First scenario "Schleiz" is one of the best (and sadly only the few) balanced scenarios.
You must find the balance of retreating and fighting on Prussian side,
during the French force attacks.

My dice are the hell!

All prussian scenarios are for experienced players (as also the scenarios of the other expansion are).

And the scenario setups also needs a good knowledge of the rules, terrain and unit skills.

Well, I do understand the rules and the units skills so I think we might try it! :)

Each scenario on CCN.net has a play counter and a ratio of wins. It is a rough guide to balance.

Grossbeeren is 50-50 after 8 plays

Laon (French Left) has only 1 play, so hard to judge.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.

Grossbeeren 50/50 after 8 Plays is good! Thanks for this info!
Laon ( French Left ) seems balanced to me because the forces are almost identical

There is no man more pusillanimous than I when I am planning a campaign. I purposely exaggerate all the dangers and all the calamities that the circumstances make possible. I am in a thoroughly painful state of agitation. This does not keep me from looking quite serene in front of my entourage; I am like an unmarried girl laboring with child. Once I have made up my mind, everything is forgotten except what leads to success.~Napoleon
