Today we tried out my newly finished American Revolution figures and rules at our club, and had a fun, if a little brief game!

As one of the American generals of the period said: "We fight, get beat, rise and fight again."

Great pictures and report. Thanks for sharing.

Enjoy the period. AWI is a good one. I know. I've been playing and hosting AWI games for decades.

I do so enjoy your AARs and your enthusiasm for our hobby. Your decision at the end of the battle was a proper Washingtonian response.

Cheers Pal! – We always try to sort of role play how commanders would have acted when deciding who won.
Washington, to me was a wise general, he knew by keeping his army intact the Revolution would continue, and if nothing else, he could outlast his opposition (both domestic and 'foreign')

Nicely done! Now, pursue those rebel dogs, Sir, and squash this perfidious uprising!
