N - The Napoleonic Wars First Complete AAR

From Ben Madison, designer of N - The Napoleonic Wars. Below the text is a snap of the map from the play test.

Just finished my first complete end-to-end run-through on N - The Napoleonic Wars and I was quite happy with the results; in late 1809 Napoleon invaded Russia and suffered a catastrophic defeat -- even worse than historical, which set the stage for the rest of the turn. The Coalition followed up with a giant battle in Austria which the French lost; the Imperial Guard broke, French morale collapsed and the French retreated to Italy. A subsequent battle in Italy drove the French back to France itself and Napoleon quickly surrendered. (And in this world, Wellington had nothing to do with it; he was mopping up French forces in Spain.)
