As organiser I thought it best if I took a minor Austrian commander (Feldzugmeister Ernst Dietrich Freiherr Marshall von Burgholzhausen) with the longest name, in order to give me the freedom to control the entry of reinforcements and provide tea, coffee and lunch at the appropriate times. So, Robbie was Marshal Daun the Austrian CinC and Paul was Nadazdy. Graham was volunteered to be Frederick and John played Anhalt-Dessau. I was using my brand new mat from Deep Cut Studios in Lithuania. I have to say it looks excellent, and everyone agreed.
For a detailed account of the battle I can recommend http://www.kronoskaf.com/syw/index.php?title=1757-06-18_-_Battle_of_Kolin . Charles S. Grant also includes Kolin in one of Wargaming in History titles, which I used for ideas in setting up this game. These maps are from Kronoskaf.
We had to call it a day at that point, after a game lasting around 5 hours including a brief stop for lunch. With no clear winner or looser it was agreed both sides had fought themselves into a draw. However, under the conventions of the day, the Prussians would have had to abandon the field to the Austrians. Had we carried on to the bitter end I suspect the outcome would have been an Austrian victory purely because the Prussians would run out of troops, especially in the centre and on their right. The final lot of Austrian reinforcements might also have helped a bit too. The Prussians actually did better than in the real battle so I will award them 2 points and the Austrians 1 in my 'championship league table'.
