Yesterday we were in Aubenas games shop, Le Point Jeux, to show the game to boardgames players. It was a good evening, where 8 persons played the game and well, they enjoyed it. You'll find below a few pictures and a small AAR of one of the game.



Main french force, with Davout and Bernadote in first line, concentrates in the east when Lannes and Augereau are threatening the east heading through Erfürt. Prussian try to cover all axes of advance.



Davout exploits a hole in the prussian lines to head north ! Napoléon and Murat follow. Bernadotte stops a few miles from Leipzig. French demonstrates their manoeuver skills and threathens two objectives. Victory looks close...

But, Zeichwitz's corps reacts and occupies Leipzig before the arrival of Bernadotte, and is reinforced by the reserve corps of Wurtemberg. Davout's run to Halle is disrupted by wrong maps of the region (prussian card play) and rain starts to pour impeding movements of the troops. Dream of a quick victory disapears.



Napoleon is defeated in front of Leipzig against all odds ! Saxon's and Wurtemberg corps resist the french "elan". Davout is threathened in Halle and Erfurt is strongly in Prussian hands.

In the west fierce fighting opposes Lannes and Brunswick, letting both side exhausted.



In a desesperate move Davout goes to Leipzig, seizes the city, but fails to destroy the two prussian corps. It's a French defeat, 4 PVs left for the prussian.
