Played this scenario using a variant Guerrilla Marker (GM) where each GM is played a banner at the start of the Spanish turn. Brent started with 1, and picked up 2 more. This gives the Spanish a real boost without distorting the game play. In think it is a winner.

French started off well, wiping out the Infantry outpost, buy the Spanish cavalry escaped (with 1 block). The French then tried to exploit the flanks, but couldn't draw anything but Centre cards. The Spanish Grenadiers did walk into a trap on the French right, and got wiped out, and the Rifles were eventually killed after inflicting much damage.

The French attack in the centre ran into trouble and the Spanish killed 3 units, coupled with the 3 GM banners gave them victory

Spanish: 6 +1
French: 3
