One of Napoleon's Marshals walks into the room of Allied officers removes his gauntlets and throws them at their feet. "Which one of you is willing to meet me on the field of battle (The combined Battles of Quatres Bras & Ligny - Historical - June 16, 1815, rules to be discussed) He snaps to attention, salutes does an about face walks out of the room mounts his horse and rides away.

Sir Muddy’s horse follows le Marechal into the Tavern dragging an obviously disoriented Allied FM by a stirrup. The horse nonchalantly but accurately drops a pile of manure on the Frenchman’s gloves and turns to leave the Tavern. During departure, one of Sir Muddy’s riding gloves is left on the floor. The Tavern maid hurries to clean the mess and quips, “looks like the challenge has been accepted”.
