Our re-fight of Emdorf (1760) provided a challenging & entertaining game.

The table was set up, ready for play, as he historical ambush : where the unwary French were surprised by an allied force of Hanoverians, Hessians & British (represented by Prussians in my game) just outside the village of Emdorf.
