Really? I found it quite Prattonian in verbiage.....

Don't make me say "Zuckerian" to you again.  :tickedoff:

Stop it.  You didn’t say it the first time.

Yesterday, Doug and I played the 'Fleurus' scenario from H&M on Vassal; Doug, resplendently attired as Luxembourg (the general that is, not the country) and in command of the Bourbon forces, knocked seven bells out of my Grand Alliance army led by the ineffectual Waldeck.

After some  initial prancing about, the Spanish units which were entrusted with the right flank, decided that enough was enough and wen't home.

By now, Doug had 4 of the required victory points required, and it was clear that the Alliance forces were faced with being enveloped and annihilated; therefore, I took the only course of action left....and surrendered to the mercy of the French.

To be fair, this is not only the historical outcome but almost the only outcome unless the French player is completely drunk. Poor Bob's Spaniards did their Latin best, but were simply outnumbered!

I actually don't really like games.

Good game, though, and a very rewarding and subtle system.

I really want to do this and stream it to Youtube. And I mean, really, really drunk.

Didn't the russian Marshal Kutuzov travel with a wagon of female "cousins" and multiple supply wagons of liquid refreshment?
Think he said that his performance in battle was improved by performing with all of his cousins the night before.

Sanity was no prerequisite for Napoleonic command.

Blucher once had a spell where he was convinced he had been impregnated by an elephant.  During the 1813 campaign he was said to have ranted about Napoleon surreptitiously having the floors of his room heated to make it uncomfortable.  This despite being in a campaign tent.

On my team, Murat, well, was Murat.  And he was out that he wasn't made King of Poland.

Just finished the 'Vienna' scenario. A crushing defeat for the Turks!

Heads will undoubtedly roll.
