Saturday saw Gus and Nathan visit my humble abode to play a game of Maurice set in the American
|Initial setup (Americans at the top)|
|Americans advance as the British cannons fire|
The Americans had the skirmisher ability, giving the irregulars long range fire(18cm vs 12cm). Unfortunately they were only hitting on 6's and the effect they had was limited.
|British right flank drives back the irregulars|
As the game came to a conclusion due to using up all the cards, we determined that the irregulars were useless in this scenario, the British were rock hard in their defensive positions and we needed to change things.
See, that's why you playtest a game before going to the show! So now the Americans will have no irregulars, more regular infantry and the British may end up attacking.
I love it when a plan comes together. I am off now to spend some time with Mrs WWID before going to play Twilight later. Have fun and keep rolling those dice.
