Played this scenario against Michael, with the Prussians winning 8-7. We used just the Basic Special rules.

Almost all the casualties were cavalry (9 units), 2 leaders, 1 artillery and 2 Grenzers, and the vast majority of fighting was between cavalry or by cavalry. This seems to run against the historical account.

Some things that need clarification or updating in the scenario;
- Tactics cards. We used 0, but Frederick and Daun should get quite a few
- Przerovsky Hill is worth 3 Victory banners (1 per hex), or should it be 1 victory banner for the majority?

General comments
- rather a lot of Special rules
- Prussian cavalry seemed under rated compared to their historical reputation, and Austrian cavalry was better. I think this should be reversed, and the Prussians be more 'French' in character.
