We played the Escort Scenario, with the English being the escorting force and the French being the attacking force. The French were the Raiding Party from the rulebook (49 points corrected) and the English had a made up force of 3 Status II leaders, 2 units of Colonial Rangers and 2 units of Indian allies (48 points). For supports the English increased 2 of the leaders to Status III and took a preacher. The French took a second deployment point and a mobile deployment point as well as elevating one of their leaders to status III.
The English started in sector 1 and had 2 free moves, while unfortunately the French ended up in their sector 4. The starting morale for the English was 11 and for the French 9. I believe we got through 4-5 card decks before the French morale failed. One thing noted was that the tiffin card ended up near the bottom of the deck in all the turns so there was a lot of card play.
We really had no problems with the movement, firing and fisticuffs mechanisms and were able to use the unit characteristics and card functions without difficulty. The game was quite smooth and both players enjoyed themselves.
I did not take a whole lot of photos but I did take some.

Well it was a fun game and I look forward top my next. I did have some simple questions and comments that were quickly answered on the TFL forum.
