Trumpeter Salute Game (Sunday) - "Your Marshal is Seeing Double!": The Battle of Jena-Auerstadt

Here is some info on the game that I'm runner at the Trumpeter's Salute convention, Sunday: 'Your Marshall is Seeing Double!': Jena-Auerstadt, 1806.

The quote is in reference to Napoleon's comments on Davout's fight against the Prussian Army at Auerstadt; something the Emperor thought he was doing himself at Jena!

Here's the entry in the programme notes:

Command structure is important in the game. Examples of command cards are shown below:
This will be fought with 2mm nano-scale figures.  Examples of how battles like this look on the tabletop can be seen in previous postings.
For more on the historic campaign, see this link in Wikipedia. 
Cheers all!
