Sorry, it was two victories for the Continentals, not the Brits.

Hi everyone,

I have a question about the ship which can make artillery fires upon the town and Bunker Hill :

It is said in the description of the scenario that it fires at one dice and be activated by Bombardment card (and during opening cannonnade);

So, does the ship has 2 extra dices when playing Bombardment ?

This scenario is not as one-sided as it looks. A superb start by the Americans racing to a 4-0 result by decimating the British light infantry attacks and then beating back an all-out attack of the British Regulars. At this stage it wasn't looking too good for the British. The British managed to rout the Riflemen holding Charlestown to relieve pressure on their right flank plus damage the American artillery. The British looked a bit out of sorts though by this stage and the non-British players were wondering what the British had left up their sleeve. What was up the British sleeve was the "At the Quick Step" card and the grenadiers with General Abercrombie marched straight to the central fence line held by Militia. The Americans were unable to respond in their turn and the grenadiers just tore the Militia apart followed within 2 more turns by the Americans behind the stone wall and the Militia and Riflemen in the centre redoubts. The 4-0 quickly changed to a 4-6 and the British won but not without a mauling. Just another day out for the Grenadiers!

A 6-2 win to the British but closer than it looked and only taking 3 hexes on Breed's Hill won it. The British light infantry launched bayonet attacks on turn 1. They succeeded in chasing the rifles from Charlestown and destroying half their number whilst the light infantry attack on the right wing resulted in heavy casualties to the Americans (both reduced by half) but the light infantry repulsed and eventually driven to the base edge and, in fact, were lucky to survive several rout tests.
The British regulars advanced enmasse led by their generals and eventually took the American redoubts on Breed's Hill and held it. 3 British regular units were reduced to single bases by the time victory was secured but they had managed to withdraw these into support positions to protect them.
An enjoyable scenario to play mainly because the British must attack and the Americans just need to shoot, reinforce from the base edge units if they can and just hold on for as long as possible.

Yonder are the Hessians. They were bought for seven pounds and tenpence a man. Are you worth more? Prove it. Tonight the American flag floats from yonder hill or Molly Stark sleeps a widow! ~~~ John Stark ~~~
