Tuesday 29th After Action Report – Quatre Bras

Folks,

Due to unforseen cicumstances only the Quatre Bras Scenario ran. Here’s the AAR by Alistair.

After a furious but brief bombardment, Marshal Ney launched an attack that threatened the flanks of the position of Quatre Bras. The French showed their metal with a well prepared attack led by Bachelu which captured the farm of Gemioncourt outright. They also carried out a flank march  on the right over the River Thyle, threatening the communications with Blucher’s army. However, a counterattack by the Dutch-Belgians was being prepared when the game had to be adjourned.

Alistair, after thirty-odd years of outright failure, has finally mastered the art of getting the face of the dice with the least density to be uppermost by expelling CO2 from “fat Coke” at the crucial moment. Hence the relentless series of double sixes!!

[Note: We apologise to those effected by Alistairs dice throwing and would like to assure you we expect normal service to resume next week]

A good playthrough with simple but exciting rules. Fat Coke 2, Diet Coke 0. 
 
The verdict: Definitely worth another go!
