Here are a few pics of the evening's festivities:
|The Prussian commanders begin their deployment. From left to right, Pete, Byron, Bob and Mike. They did an excellent job throughout the evening. I think they will be formidable foes come Game Day next month!|
|The French commanders likewise prepare their troops for the battle. From Left to Right; Rob, Ralph, Earl and Charlie. It is always nice to have the author on your team!|
|The Prussian players in disbelief as Earl rolls lights out and the French left holds firm. At the end of Turn 1 the French players had the same look on their faces.|
Overall the game went very well. Ed was trying out some slight rules modifications like an additional bonus when defending in line. Ended up not being such a slight modification and the game really swung on a couple of battles that would have gone the other way if the modification hadn't been made. I'm thinking that Ed might put it back to the original version for game day.
During game day I will make sure to take more photos of the troops in addition to the players.
