Judging by the last tournament, wondering if tweaking the four villages VP to instead just provide a temporary VP to the French if they occupy at least one village location would help, and simplify rules
My view is leave this one alone. In 2 plays, I found each game played out completely differently. One was a cavalry clash on the French Right, the other an infantry and artillery battle on the French Left.
Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.
An extraordinary opening. The Austrians , holding a Canister Card moved an artillery unit forward in the center to bait an attack by the French Lancers. Attack they did. After the Canister Card was played the French used Battlefield Smoke... no hits by the canister... artillery destroyed and a Light Infantry now in square. The Austrians attacked Victor and were smashed. French win 8-4.
