Does anyone actually own enough trees for the French and Indian Wars? I certainly don’t. I was able to assemble four feet of leafy corridor to represent Monongahela which I hope will do the job of providing an appropriately gloomy, restrictive environment for the game.
While we are making-do I should say that victory for the Anglo-Americans will be achieved by exiting the corridor.
For the French and Indians success is preventing the same.
Onontio's men are heavily outnumbered. The pre-match characterisation has produced a British commander (7 units) who is a ladies man and a French one (5 units) who is a duelist, party boys then.
As much as anything else I want see how well TPL works for this conflict. If I'm happy I'll be trying two epic defeats one British, one French where the commanders concerned decided upon a European battle plan in an American context. Oddly both of them were closely involved in the promotion of the new 'light infantry' tactics but opted for a traditional approach.
