3 hours saw the game come to a conclusion. Much like the historical battle, the Prussians triumphed but only just. It could have gone either way, right up the last game turn. The excellent Austrian cavalry crushed their poor Prussian counterparts whilst the Austrian infantry were as chaff before the wind of the Prussians. That Prussian infantry!

This was possibly one of the best wargames I've been involved in. Enthralling. The rules (Tricorne) worked well, The table & figures looked good. Companionship was very pleasant.

One little joke of mine was to place a very much needed Prussian cavalry brigade in an obscure corner of the table – wedged in by an impassable river. It took 5 Game turns for an ADC to reach them with orders to return…..too late to have an impact.

Thank you for the kind comments.
There is something so stately & pleasing about SYW gaming.

I'm moving back onto to Late Antiquity & Napoleonics for a while so Fred. & company will retreat into their storage containers until another day.
