This was my first game of Guildford Courthouse. I had not played in some time and was rusty. The British got some good hits in early against the militia, but three times a one block militia unit held on its rally check. The Americans kept pulling back towards their base line. Once I realized that the British would not be able to take the hills with the fresh American regulars, I shifted the British line to its right flank to hit the weaker militia and spent rifle/regulars there. It was still very close at 9-9 and could have gone either way. However, a British unity with a leader was able to take out a spent artty and militia unit to win the day. A great scenario. I need to learn how to play the British better.

First game, playing the Continentals. I chose to keep the militia in the center where they were. By the end of the game, I still had 7 militia units (lost 1). My center held. My right under Washington took casualties. My right did ok. I was up by several flags, but a late surge by the Brits netted 3-4 units from failed rally rolls (even one unit at FS). However, I closed the deal with my artillery firing at his grenadiers in the center, who failed their rally roll. 10-6 final score.
