Over Christmas break, we setup a little battle for Kriegsspiel. Something small and quick. How about Bunker Hill?
We did a little research, found some maps and set it up:
The wooden blocks are ships at sea bombarding the peninsula.
In Kriegsspiel, we use real maps. This got me thinking about Pub Battles. Could we make a Pub Battles: Bunker Hill? I think so. We’d need to adjust the scale a bit. Some were worried that is would be boring after the first play or so. There isn’t much to do but attack the redoubt.
True, unless the British can land anywhere and start attacking…. They took terrible losses at the battle. Could that have been avoided? Could they have defeated the rebels with light losses? A big, British victory here might have prevented the entire war.
I think it could be a good game. What about you?
