In the game, the British main attack moves forward but is held up for several turns by the Russian dragoons who are wiped out after several suicidal charges. The tentative British attack results in them only managing to get a single unit on the hill managing to dispute the objective so they did not loose the objective points but the Russians still manage to get half the points they allocated.
On the British left the Light Brigade get held up by poor initiative and the Russian Cossacks. The Brigade suffers heavy losses from the Russian riflemen before breaking through and moving towards the Russian line of supply. However, they do not make it before the end of the game. The British 3rd Brigade and artillery valiantly hold their position when threatened by the Cossacks and the Russian 1st and 2nd Brigades. The Russian C-in-C, recognising the situation, rushes over to change the 2nd Brigade's orders and instructs them to move to the left to threaten the rear of the British main attack, but the British send their Guards Brigade round to cut them off.
The Russian Cossacks pass round the 3rd Brigade's flank to the British line of supply and in response the British turn their guns around and force one unit of Cossacks to retire. However, the last Cossack unit passes its morale test in the last turn (needing less then 4 on a d20 to pass) therefore leading to -30 point to the British for the loss of their line of supply. The Russian C-in-C moves over to the 1st Brigade to change their orders to attack but it was to late in the game to take effect.
