Won this one by having the Polish Guard Light Cavalry charge down the Spanish Artillery and destroy all 3 units. The Emperor really was watching!

How often does the sudden death victory come up? My recall in the Mini-Tournament it was just once, but I don't really know.

Aside from the sacrifice artillery up front, it isn't clear to me this is that unbalanced. Difficult to note rate Napoleon 6 cards, nor deny the French first move.

Perhaps give a location victory banner under the rearmost Spanish artillery, to compensate the Spanish for the sacrifice, and to REALLY make it about that hill.

Started to set up this scenario, but couldn't determine exactly what terrain tiles were underneath the 3 Spanish artillery units. Also, the map shows French Guard Light Cav while the unit manifest indicates French Guard Heavy Cavalry. Which is correct? Thanks.

top ART = hill (standard), middle ART = nothing, botton/left ART is a 4sided fieldworks on open ground.

The center french CAV is Guard Light CAV.

My dice are the hell!

One other question. Where does the hill with the fieldworks go?

There is no Hill with fieldworks, it´s another mistake here on the scenario site :)

We will fix it :)

Played this out as the Spanish, and it was a great scenario. French took it 7-6 but was sitting at 5-5 for quite a while and could have gone either way. (mdg) (mdg) (mdg) (mdg) (mdg)

Two fierce games last evening at our club. Furia francese and Furia spagnola alterned during the 2 games. In the 2nd, my friend Guillaume, known as Borodino's Butcher, has destroyed quickly 2 of the 3 spanish batteries. The french "panache" wasn't able to destroy the last one (despite a leadership card and a cavalry leader played on the Guard LC due to a Battle Smoke card played treatously by myself). Guillaume wanted to win the game by Sudden Death, Spaniards launched a Bayonet charge who destroyed a lot of french Infantry (final score 7-5 but French would had won in not playing this way). The 1st game was won by the French 7-3 using first the Cavalry and then the Infantry to finish the weakened spanish Infantry units.
