Gen Con 2013 - 1775: Rebellion

I had the opportunity to put on my giant version of 1775: Rebellion (see the July post for details of the game) at Gen Con this year.  I ran it at noon on Saturday in the Miniatures area.  Here are some pictures:

 My buddy Jacoby helped me set up.  Thanks Coby!


The game is ready!


 Close-up of the Connecticut Militia and Regulars.


 Team America prepares to play their turn.


 They opted for an early Southern strategy.


 ...and took Georgia and South Carolina.


Team Britain countered with a robust attack from Canada and New Jersey.

After escalating battles around New England and the central colonies, the Americans won a couple of climactic battles to secure New England, and then used this as a base to drive north and win the game by a narrow margin.

The game took three hours as both sides were very deliberate in making their moves, but the quality of the strategies that resulted were very strong.  The momentum swung back and forth a couple of times.  All-in-all a fun day.  I really like this game and am glad to have a premium version of it.
