January 24th was Frederick the Great's birthday. We therefore did a Seven Years war game at our club.
Would he be victorious?

The write up is on my blog at this link

You want me to roll for your command next game? (smile)

Thanks Robert! Actually, after the game Lawrence suggested we check the packs of brigadier chits we both use as I have been getting such an awful mix of them for quite a few games, and guess what, apart from one average quality brigadier (out of 40 chits), the decks were identical!

Its not just the dice that are out to get me…!!!

Very nice! And one of Great Freddy's best qualities was bouncing back

Thanks FdG! I have no doubt my version will bounce back.

Recently, I have had to remind myself of what the Kuirassier said after Kolin, " Here, drink your Majesty and let battles be battles."

We always enjoy your AARs, even if the Prussians lose. (smile)
