Beautiful map, highly rated game, 6 hour time allotment
is a turnoff, there is only ONE thread in its forum;
Where should a newbie (but old grognard) start on 1809?
I recommend either the Battle of Abensberg or the Battle of Eckmuehl. Both scenarios only have 7 turns (including one night turn without combat). I think those can be done in three hours if you know the rules. For the first play it might get a bit longer though. But it is worth the effort, this game is really great!
If you like the system, also have a look at 1806: Rossbach Avenged which offers some battle scenarios with only three turns (as well as longer campaign scenarios of course).
