It has been a busy week with games. On Monday I went to Falkirk and District Wargames club and played a small Black Powder Napoleonic game with Dougie Kirby. We each had 2 infantry brigades and a cavalry brigade. In 2 hours play I lost my 3 regiment cavalry brigade and my Swiss infantry brigade. It was a decisive British victory.

On Saturday Colin Jack and Hugh Wilson came out to my place as I staged a second game of my Craonne 1814 scenario. Colin commanded the Russians and Hugh the French. I supported Hugh playing the French left wing and umpired. We played 14 moves during the afternoon. The French were definitely doing better when we ended than at the same point in the previous game. In fact the Russian Army was at the point were it had to retire as half of its brigades were broken. We used the same scenario and OB as before but this time the French had to decide in advance which entry points all their brigades were using.
