We used the battalion scale version of Volley and Bayonet. I painted one unit, built the model of the Macarty House, Jackson's HQ, and created the OB; Jim created the terrain board, and painted almost all of the figures.
The game was actually close. The British crossed the American line once and almost created a three unit wide breach further down the position. The dice were in our favor and we held the line. It is definitely a tough fight for the British, but winnable.
We will run this game at Advance the Colors next Friday and then again the next Friday at the Lilly Library. Don't be surprised if you see it at Origins and GenCon next year.
