|Lefebvre's attack is thrown back!|
To make things even more interesting, the weather has turned from frost to rain, closing down LOS to just one hex range. Into this driving rain Lefebvre's VIII Corps of Bavarians launches an attack on Stutterheim's mixed infantry/light cavalry force at Unter Laiching. A stout Austrian defense quickly throws back the Bavarian attack!

Finally, the Austrians played a "Destroyed Bridge" card during their card play phase, with the net result that Marulaz's cavalry reinforcements, expected at 1PM, have now been delayed for two hours.
It's taking me a while to get up to speed, but I'm really starting to like this system. I wasn't too keen on the cards at first, but when combined with the command system and variable weather, it all makes for a pleasingly variable system that adds a lot of interest to solitaire play and bodes well for replay value. More importantly, the game narrative really feels Napoleonic. Time to head to the game room and knock out another turn!
