I'd forgotten about this.
Very much looking forward to seeing the campaign as it develops.

Ha....first I knew that I had lost the campaign was the appearance of this AAR.....bout typical for the general lack of knowledge/intelligence I had in the whole campaign....one very broken and dissallusioned General Brunswick!

I can't wait to find out myself about the where, what and how of my dimise...I thought I was sitting pretty, but tired, in Leipzig with quite a lot of my boys....shows how little I know....he he!

Great game and I know I shouldn't say it but I would dearly love to do something like this again in the not too distant future if Jim can summon up both the energy and time to do it all again. Thanks for a great gaming experience Jim...very much appreciated indeed.

To My Lord of Brunswick and all the others I owe a real debt of thanks.  I'll have much more to say (I really always do) in the AARs, but I am grateful for the fun.

And, yes, there will be another.

Enjoying watching the videos and reading the usual Grog-banter.  O0  How did Napoleon and his Guard get all by himself so far north?

@Slash -- In a fashion that reminded me much more of Gustavus Adolphus than the Little Corporal, he took a chevauchee up that way looking for Prussians to kill.

Bold, but he swung at air.

So, are the videos being released in real-time to correspond to the pace of the game?  :-"

Ditto!  I've already watched the four.  Found a couple more from the last day on YouTube and I refuse to watch them out of order.  MOAR PLEASE!

If you want real-time of the game, you'll need to watch them frame-by-frame.
