Huzzah 2017 Friday evening

View from the Austrian Cente
I had the good fortune to play in Rich Wallace's Seven Year's War game Friday night May 19 at Huzzah in Portland, Maine.  Rich also uses Carnage and Glory II rules and he ran a spectacular award winning game, as you will see from the photos below.  I commanded the Prussian Infantry guarding the town and the Prussian artillery.  I played a waiting game while Fredrick advanced the reserves to smash the Austrian center.  As is usual  in the Seven Years War, cavalry formed both flanks.  In our game the cavalry on the Prussian right smashed their opponents and a similar result occurred on the left flank, but it took a while longer to achieve on this flank.

Prussian's secure advantage on their right flank as both sides cavalry tire.

Rich secures the award for best game of the evening. Well done Rich!
