Kutuzov

An introduction to this interesting game. Mike and Phil tried out the Russians whilst James tried out the French. The French got literally bogged down around the marshes and their invasion stalled. they then crossed the river to attack the town bordering the marsh but were badly let down by their perfidious Austrian allies who failed to cross and left them stranded on the hostile bank facing constant attack from relentless hordes of desperate Russians. Though they defeated these attacks they eventually lost due to gradual attrition of their isolated force.

For Napoleon meanwhile all this activity in the marsh to the South deprived him of crucial cards he needed to pursue his invasion. He was also unwilling to attack Kutuzov in his fortified position. Kutuzov having arrived rather earlier than expected due to a rules error. Then when he finally tried to advance passed the wily Russian he was attacked and cut off from his supporting corps and routed!

Victory therefore for the Russians but this was just an introductory game. Next time James will be more prepared with new aggressive tactics bent on invasion towards Moscow!
