On turn two France braved heavy fighting at Vienna. The main battle at Vienna involved the French side playing Dysentary and the Austro-Russians playing Turncoats, Hero, and Rally. After the smoke cleared France conquered Austria with capitulation preventing a possible Austro-Russian counter-attack. France also took Lisbonand gained Turkey diplomatically.

A Brit-SwedishD-Day was easily repulsed, and David's French juggernaut captured Grodno, Smolensk, Saint Petersburg, and even the crownof Russia; Moscow. Again, the French side played capitulation and Russia surrendered before Britain could even play Russia Mobilizes. Michael Dauer came in third, Michael Day second, and David's aggressive French strategy earned him first place.
