    Command + Special Activity
    First, Battle in West Indies (French pay 1 resource).

    Battle in West Indies
    British and French each have two regulars, so no die rolls.
    French loss level = 0 +1 (at least half defenders are regulars) -1 (British defending in West Indies with squadron present) = 0
    British loss level = 0 +1 (at least half attackers are regulars) = 1
    Outcome: British lose one regular in West Indies

    Then, Naval Pressure, setting FNI to 3 and moving one Blockade from West Indies to Boston.

    Finally, Battle in New York City with French and Patriot forces (French pay 1 resource, Patriots pay 1 resource).

    Battle in New York City
    Attackers Force Level = 8 French Regulars + 3 Continentals = 11
    Defenders Force Level = 5 British Regulars + 1 Tory + 1 Fort = 7

    Attackers roll 3d3, Defenders roll 2d3.

    Geth, roll 3d3 for base British loss level
    Geth, roll 2d3 for base Rebellion loss level


    base British loss level:
    3d3 5 [3d3=3, 1, 1]
    base Rebellion loss level:
    2d3 3 [2d3=2, 1]

    Battle in New York City resolution
    British loss level = 5 + 1 (half attacking cubes regulars) + 1 (attacking leader) -1 (defending fort) = 6
    Rebellion loss level = 3 + 1 (half defending cubes regulars) + 1 (defending fort) -1 (British defending in Blockaded City) = 4

    Outcome in NYC:
    British lose, in order, a regular, a tory, a regular, and a regular. +4 British casualties.
    Rebellion loses a French regular and a Continental. +2 Rebellion Casualties.

    So, British casualties go to 12, Rebellion casualties go to 10. New York City goes to Active Support via Win the Day. Rebellion control in West Indies.

    @TheColonel for a Limited Command or the Minister Comte event.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Maybe a little premature but how would people feel about calling this game and restarting with new factions? It leaves the Patriots vs. French in the lurch but I kind of feel like this gap is too big to overcome.

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    If no one else wants to play out the endgame, that's fine with me, I guess.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    It my first time playing so I’m not sure what comebacks look like, but if you think it’s decided I’m all for going again.

    I want to look back and see what turn was the decider. Without looking back I feel that first winter was really good for the Rebellion.

    I'm fine with playing it out. I'm guessing there'll be an instant win in the next WQ.

    I think the early first winter was rough on the British and I think some of the sequences of events were really brutal on them as well. I also think the British are one of the toughest factions to play and need to start with an aggressive plan.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    After we play it out I'd love to start again and take the British this time, if everyone else is up for it.

  • TheColonelTheColonel ChicagolandRegistered User regular
    Sorry for the delay, had a slight motorcycle incident this weekend and have been a bit out of sorts.

    I'm ok playing things out if people want to keep going to see whether it's a French or Patriot win. I do apologize to admanb for being a bad "partner". First time playing and I think you're right the Brits do need to be pretty aggressive early on. I also hadn't fully read how the Winter Quarter functioned and that definitely hurt.

    Restarting is fine too. Let me know.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Sorry to hear that, but I'm glad to hear you're okay. Let's finish this up! The more experience we all get the more interesting the next game will be.

    Tronson de Coudray Arrives in America

    Considered a military expert in France, in 1776, he volunteered
    to go to America to assist the Patriots. Silas Deane promised him a
    commission as major-general with command of the artillery. This offended
    officers already attached to the army, and his superior attitude
    and aristocratic demeanor did nothing to improve relations with
    others. On September 11, 1777, he was drowned while crossing the
    Schuylkill River at Philadelphia, the horse on which he was seated
    becoming frightened and dragging him overboard. It is rumored
    than only his aide-de-camp attempted a rescue.

    Special Activity - Naval Pressure
    Remove French Blockade of Charles Town

    Command - Muster in Charles Town
    Pay 1 place 3 regulars in Charles Town
    Place 2 Tories in Charles Town

    Reward Loyalty for 3 bringing Charles Town to Active Support

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    @TheColonel you still have Howe out so when you naval pressure you remove two blockades.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Indians pass. @A Half Eaten Oreo for a Patriot LC or event.

  • TheColonelTheColonel ChicagolandRegistered User regular
    Oh, well in that case also remove Boston

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Patriots take the Event.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Patriots +3 resources to 5.

    Indians will take Command+SA spend three resources to Raid from the Northwest into New York, Maryland-Delaware, and Virgina. Opposition goes to neutral in each space and total opposition drops to 13.

    Then they'll trade in the Northwest. @TheColonel to decide how much, if any, to give me.

    I'll have a map update shortly.

    Battle in New York City between French, Patriots, and British
    French pay 1 resource.
    Patriots pay 1 resource.

    British Force level = 3
    Rebellion Force level = 9

    British loss level = 3D3 + 1 (half attacking cubes regulars) + 1 (attacking leader) - 1 (defending fort) = 3D3 + 1
    Rebellion loss level = 1D3 + 1 (half defending cubes regulars) - 1 (blockaded city) + 1 (defending fort) = 1D3 + 1

    Geth, roll 3D3 for British loss level
    Geth, roll 1D3 for Rebellion loss level

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    Try again.
    Geth, roll 3d3 for British loss level
    Geth, roll 1d3 for Rebellion loss level

    British loss level:
    3d3 6 [3d3=1, 3, 2]
    Rebellion loss level:
    1d3 3 [1d3=3]

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    British loss level = 6+1 = 7
    Rebellion loss level = 3+1 = 4

    French lose one regular in New York City.
    Patriots lose one continental in New York City.
    British lose two regulars and one fort in New York.


    Cumulative British Casualties go to 15.
    Cumulative Rebellion Casualties go to 12.

    @A Half Eaten Oreo will be first up on the next card.

    New York City is already at active opposition, so I don't think Win the Day has any effect, right?

    Shifts can spread to adjacent spaces. Also, you can move your blockade from the city you battled in.

    Also (and I always forget this one) Patriots get a free Rally.

    Wow, I completely overlooked that paragraph of the rules.

    Win the Day generates one shift to opposition. Use it on New York, moving New York to Passive Opposition. (Or is there a raid marker in New York? If so, that gets removed instead.)
    French move Blockade to Charles Town.
    Patriots get a free rally in one space; I'm not sure if I choose or not. If I get to choose, put two militia in Charles Town (1 fort + 1 population). Otherwise, "A Half Eaten Oreo" for a free rally.

    Edit: Win the Day is part of the battle procedure steps in the rulebook, so I'm pretty sure I choose where the patriots rally.

    There is a Raid in NY but it doesn't effect Win the Day. Raids/Propaganda only effect spending $$$ for shifts.

    There's only one available militia. Should I just place one or also a Continental?

    Note the board isn't up to date with the Win the Day changes.

    Confusion Allows Slaves to Escape

    As a result of the American Revolution, thousands of slaves freed
    themselves by running away. In Georgia alone, 5,000 slaves, a third
    of the colony’s prewar total, escaped. In South Carolina, a quarter
    of the slaves achieved freedom..
