An Austro-Prussian War Battle
A large gathering of some old friends gathered at Tom's house in early November 2023 to play this nineteenth century Principles of War game. My thanks for the text and pictures.
The Prussian Cuirassiers charged the Bavarian Guards who managed to shoot them off with the help of a battery of artillery. The game finally came to an end when the Prussian right flank started to give way as the Austrians finally arrived to join the the attack with the Saxons and Bavarians. At this stage we called time as it was well past 7pm and we had already put the restaurant booking back by an hour to 8pm. It was a fun game and considering only two of the players had fought the rules before it ran very smoothly and the players were making their own calculations by the end of the game.
