    Marquis de Lafayette Arrives in Colonies

    Marquis de Lafayette left France in early 1777 to seek service with
    the Patriots. Offering to serve at his own expense, he was commissioned
    a Major General in the Continental Army and became
    a close confident to George Washington. Wounded at the Battle of
    Brandywine Creek, he served in the army until January 1779.

    Ouch, now to figure out how to stop a Patriot victory as we're due for another Winter Quarter here soon I'd guess.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    I'll cut down some of that oppo on my turn.

    Move 1 Regular and 1 Tory from New York into NYC.

    Tories Tested

    Tories were also called Loyalists, Royalists or King’s men. Patriots
    referred to them as “persons inimical to the liberties of America.”
    When their cause was defeated, about 15% of the Loyalists or
    65,000–70,000 emigrated to other parts of the British Empire.

    Indians raid, moving two from SW and one from NW into Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Then they'll Trade in NW to get back to 2 resources.

    I’d like to see next card and updated map before deciding for sure.

    Patriots get one resource from passing. Also, French should have six resources; I passed a couple cards ago and didn't receive my +2 for passing.

    I was wondering why I had you at 6 on the board, but usually it's the board that's wrong.

    Also lol it's Winters Quarters again!

    Second one in a row that's as early as possible. I'm not gonna have time to make a post calling out everything that's needed, so if people can take the time to do that on their own that would be excellent. For our part the Indians will be moving to SW/NW so there are four in each space.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Rough winter! Just glad half of 1 is 0. But this still seem bad for Freedom.

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    Somebody please double-check my work here, but I think it's right...

    Supply Phase:
    - All British forces are in supply
    - Patriots are out of supply in: New York, Quebec, Maryland/Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia. Only place that this matters (i.e., only place with more than one unit) is in Quebec. @A Half Eaten Oreo to either pay one resource or remove one Militia from Quebec
    - All French forces are in supply
    - Indians are out of supply in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland/Delaware, and Pennsylvania. @admanb to either pay one resource per each of those spaces where he leaves units or move those units to the nearest province with a village (Penn. and Maryland units would go to Northwest, North Carolina unit to Southwest, the Virginia unit may go to either Northwest or Southwest)

    West Indies Battle
    French and British battle in the West Indies.
    British loss level = 1d3 + 1 (for opposing force being 50%+ regulars)
    French loss level = 1d3 + 1 -1 (for opposing force being 50%+ regulars / for attacking in West Indies with one squadron present)
    Geth, roll 1d3 for base British Loss Level
    Geth, roll 1d3 for base French Loss Level

    base British Loss Level:
    1d3 1 [1d3=1]
    base French Loss Level:
    1d3 2 [1d3=2]

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    West Indies Battle Resolution:
    British loss level = 1+1 = 2
    French loss level = 2+1-1 = 2
    The British lose 1 regular and the French lose 1 regular
    @TheColonel may either return any of his remaining West Indies units to available and/or pay one resource if any remain

    The French will pay one resource to keep both regulars in the West Indies

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    Resources Phase:
    British gain 6 resources (3 forts + 3 population in non-blockaded British controlled cities: Quebec (1), Savannah (1), and Charleston (1))
    Indians gain 2 resources (half of 5 villages, rounded down)
    Patriots gain 6 resources (3 forts + half of 6 Rebellion controlled spaces, rounded down)
    French gain 4 resources (FNI level of 2 + 2 population in cities not controlled by British: Norfolk (1) and Philadelphia (1))

    Support Phase:
    @TheColonel may spend resources to build support in New York City only (it's the only space with regulars and tories that's not already at active support).
    @A Half Eaten Oreo may spend resources to raise opposition in any rebellion controlled space with Patriot pieces: Georgia, Norfolk, Philadelphia, New York, Massachusetts

    I'll pause there for everyone to catch up and check my work.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Let the militia starve in Quebec.
    Pay 2 resources to increase Opposition in New York to Passive Oppose .
    Pay 1 resource to increase Opposition in Norfolk to Active Oppose.

    Looking ahead I believe 2 militia and 1 continental will desert from the Armies of Freedom.

  • TheColonelTheColonel ChicagolandRegistered User regular
    The Brits will:
    Spend 1 to keep our boys in the West Indies
    No spend in NYC

    1 Tory will desert here shortly, with French picking.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Indians will choose Charles Town for both the deserting militia and continental.

    @Hedgethorn to choose the deserting Tory.

    @A Half Eaten Oreo to choose the second militia.

    Patriots lose 2 resources to the event. Then we'll move to the next card!

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    French also need to choose which blockade to remove and everyone can redeploy their leaders.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Militia in Quebec deserts.
    Washington moves to Charles Town

  • TheColonelTheColonel ChicagolandRegistered User regular
    Howe to Charles Town

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    The Tory in Quebec deserts out of loneliness.
    The blockade from Boston sails back to the West Indies.

    The Patriot militia defeated the Loyalist militia commanded by
    British Major Patrick Ferguson of the 71st Foot, who was killed.

    William Alexander, Lord Stirling

    As a Brigadier General in the Continental Army, at the Battle
    of Long Island, Lord Stirling led the stalwart, well-trained 1st
    Maryland Regiment in repeated attacks against a superior British
    Army force at the Old Stone House and took heavy casualties.
    Heavily outnumbered, his brigade was eventually overwhelmed and
    Stirling himself was taken prisoner during the retreat, but not before
    repelling the British forces long enough to allow the main body of
    Washington’s Continental troops to escape. He was praised by both
    Washington and the British for his bravery and audacity. Released
    in a prisoner exchange he was promoted to the rank of major general
    and became one of Washington’s most trusted generals.
