This was a real cat & mouse game that could have swung either way. 5 banners of excitment. 5 stars!! (mdg)

Lost just with French 0:5!!!!
Never expected such a result with French in this scenario.
I had good Cards (2 Force March, 1 Bayonett Charge), but no comment about my dice,
see below to my signature :evil:

My dice are the hell!

We've been playing last friday evening with my friend leboucher (that means in french "The Butcher") and I won both games with a final score of 10 - 0... He had no luck with his dices. It looked like chess game.
With the Austrians, I got a lot of luck with my HC ripping the same turn with a normal card (no bonuses)a full LC unit and a full Cuirassiers unit ! 8 hits on 9 dices !
So the Butcher was butchered (I hope he will play CCN again with me) !
Sometimes the dices are very boring.

Aggressive tactics for Austrians worked well and they managed to destroy many French units. Resulting in 5-2, and more would come...
Much better dice for Austrians and also, French was beginner player. Anyway, I would never say, such result would be possible for Austrians.

Watching this scenario played in the OT2018 tournement and having played it twice myself, I have the impression it does not replicate the historical feeling, albeit it is surely fun to play. The use of tactician cards (I'll never be a big fun of those) dilute national differences and in particular the French advantage in maneuverability. At the end, with decent cards the Austrian can easily tie or even win the cavalry match on the right flank. At that point, it's probably a 3 VP game and given the Austrian resilience in defence, five LN units are sufficient to give him the victory. If it were a 6 VP scenario, probably it would better replicate the historical result.

Very exciting end to the Rohr scenario. Austrians can win by eliminating Morands’s troops with an inspired Schustekh and cavalry assault, but Morand pulls back and the Austrian cavalry is caught in crossfire! Game over, French win 5-4.

Introductory scenario to learn the rules. Interesting and hard-fought, with a 5-4 win for the Frenchman. Assault on the left and central French side, with a combined counterattack by the Austrian infantry and cavalry leading to the killing of Morand. In the end, the victory went to the Frenchman who was able to count on greater mobility (thanks also to a higher number of cards available), and precision in both ranged and melee combat.

It is the business of cavalry to follow up the victory, and to prevent the beaten army from rallying.~Maxims LI
