No doubt, this is a well balanced scenario. With the Austrians' burden of attack comes a sweeping advantage in that the French have no right flank (as defined by the sector cards). Creating a right flank by moving units across seriously weakens the centre; failure to do so can result in three or four right flank cards in the French player's hand which are useless. That happened to me just as I possibly had the upper hand. The only benefit was that my opponent was faced with a dearth of those same cards.

One rule change I would propose is that ALL cards have the possibility to order ONE unit (anywhere), not only some of the special cards.

This was a very balanced scenario, playing to 9 medals. We traded body blows, back and forth. I finally forced the French from the defensive position in the Long Garden, gaining a medal and making the score 8 to 6. On his next turn, the French Cuirassiers devastated one of my Line Infantry units and took out a General. The score was now 8 to 8. All that was left was for me to take out a lone Light Infantry at his baseline. If I had rolled poorly, he would have easily won on his next turn.
