No game this Thursday as I was at a funeral.
Last week, thanks to upheaval caused by BT trying to sort out a phone fault (now fixed!), I went with a game with an easy set up. This is a blast from the past: Eagles, the Napoleonic card game by Columbia Games (similar to the Dixie series).
|For the first game, we tried the Quatre Bras scenario. Rick's French won this game quickly. We then changed sides. Rick's British won so quickly that I had no time for a photo!|
|The second scenario was Ligny. These are the initial deployments.|
|The early game was defined by artillery duels.|
|The Prussians attack.|
|The French fight back.|
|A final attack overwhelms the French flank. Victory came soon after this photo was taken.|
A good game that is a useful standby for a short notice game.
