Today the fellows came by my place to fight the Battle of Bunker Hill! Kevin took the British while Jon took the Americans.

We had a break for lunch and tried the scenario again. This time Kevin held off any attack until Clinton's reinforcing brigade was available. With only nine turns remaining until the end of the scenario, Kevin was gambling that once concentrated blow could clear the Americans off the hill.
In two plays of this scenario, we had two resounding American victories, which was not at all what I had expected! I will play this same scenario through solo to see if I can get a different result.
Even if the games were lopsided, a good time was had by all! I'm very lucky to have such a good gaming group. No drama, no hurt feelings, just friendly guys who enjoy history and a good spectacle!
