The scenario pitted the four "brigades" (actually divisions) of the Prussian IV Korps against the French VI Corps and some supporting cavalry. The Prussians also had the assistance of the brigades on the Anglo-Allied left as well as the lead elements of the I and II Korps. The French also had the assistance of the 4th Division of the 1st Corps facing the Anglo-Allied left flank as well as reinforcements from the Imperial Guard.
The Prussian objective was to seize the town of Plancenoit and threaten the rear of the French army. The French, of course, were to prevent that.

Overall it was a good convention game. All of the players seemed to be having fun and getting involved in the game. I tried to keep the action moving along. As stated above, the game came down to the very final melee on the last turn before the Prussians broke the last French brigade (Young Guard) that they needed to seal their win. They never captured Plancenoit but had almost broken through the French center north of there. The result was that Blucher got his revenge on the French.
