Save the Cannon
Here’s a quick look at a Friday night throw together game a mate and I had a few weeks ago. Based in Napoleonic Spain the idea behind the game was that the British army was advancing on the town and the French needed to evacuate before they arrived. To this end a small detachment was dispatched with the last remaining French artillery piece. Taking the main road it would need to cross the stream before turning right and making a run to safety. Shown by the yellow line on the picture below. The local Spanish populace however had other ideas. Intent on preventing any French escape they had sent word to all available Spanish troops in the area.
