A couple of things inspired me to get out the Napoleonics and put on a game for Darren and Des. Des arrived first and chose the Austrians. Darren would have to make do with the French. The scenario is Austrians at Bay for the original green Scenario book for the Avalon Hill Napoleon's Battles edition.
While waiting for Darren I walked Des through the rules and to my horror found I had forgot more than I remembered. Well, not quiet, but a few key things, the problem being I knew for example how units recovered from disorder in other rules, but couldn't readily recall the method with Napoleon's Battles. Throw in a very noisy meeting hall and it was a bit stressful.
Never mind, on with the game!
