Napoleon's Battles at Steve's

It has been awhile since I have hosted a game of NB.  I will adjust the scenario to be playable within two to three hours and to accommodate those who RSVP.

 

The scenario is the Battle of Montmirail, 11 February 1814. Striking rapidly from the South at Champaubert, Napoleon tore into the center of Blucher's strung out column as it was pushing west to Paris in pursuit of MacDonald.  From the central position, the French then drove west with only available troops, the Old Guard and a division of the "Marie Louise", in hopes of smashing Blucher's leading elements (Sacken and Yorck) in isolation and with their backs to French held bridges over the Marne river. Sacken turned in response to the French maneuver, seeing so few French behind him, and sought to cut his way back to Blucher through Montmirail while Yorch advocated fleeing north through Chateu Thierry.   Seeing that he could not dissuade the Russian from his aggression, Yorck marched to his aid.

    Good times. Napoleon's Battles is still a very good set of rules after two decades since they were originally published by Avalon Hill.

    Great Fun, those pesky Russians put up a good fight but the Heavy Guard prevailed in the end!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
