Well,. it has taken a while, but here are the French players perspectives on the 1812, Russia: The Northern Flank, Campaign-in-a-Day, with Snappy Nappy. Had to believe we played this almost 2.5 months ago!
The Snappy Nappy campaign in a day events are fantastic way of conducting a large scale event and in my opinion have been very successful in doing so. I do think the bottleneck at Disna could have been avoided. It was the result of both the French and Russian's assuming that impassable sections of the map were actually traversable and liability to being flanked. Both forces marched to be the first to secure the location and met head on, but not in such as way as to deploy long lines, where Snappy Nappy could really shine. Had I any amount of infantry I would have led the example of breaking a stalemate by force. I as the game wound down I attempted a cavalry charge into cannons with the hopes of inspiring a more reckless approach from my allies, alas we mostly traded cannon fire.
