Colorado Springs Gamers Association (CSGA) and the Colorado Military Historians (CMH)
This year we added a new Dbx event by way of throwing down some DBN. We chose to play the Prussian attack on Plancenoit. The French VI Corps trying to hold back some the angered Prussian IV Corps. It was Doug Raines and Nate Forte playing the French and Doug Wildfong and myself playing the Prussians. Note that Nate is from CMH and was granted a special Presidential pardon for playing for CSGA.
Here are a few pictures.

So the DBN battle was a very close run action. We modified the scoring system and scale to provide us a better historical feel. That meant that the whoever solely held Plancenoit received 2 points. But ala, Drums and Shako Large Battle (DSLB) we awarded a side one (1) point that had penetrated the enemies Zone 1 (6 inch form centerline). And if you got Infantry into their Zone 2 (rear 6 inches) then the side would be given 2 points. One additional condition was if you got Cavalry in Zone 2 you could score another point. This provided us with a very desperate battle where the Prussians are pushing into the French Right Flank and trying to punch through into Napoleon's rear.

Thanks CSGA for your hospitality providing food and a great playing environment. I wanted to also add safe, well, it is in the Police Station.
