So the monthly meeting of my wargaming club happened today and while 3 of the members fought to decided the fate of Germany in World War 2 I took on Crabby Old Gamer in a game taking place during the birth of our nation: GMT's Revolutionary War game Saratoga. As history would have it this battle was the turning point of the war. The Americans win and France decides to help us out and actual recognize us as an independent country.

This Saturday however things did not go quite as planned. Right off the bat the British were further toward Freeman's Farm than I thought they would be as I skipped my first two turns. Even with the fog rules the Brits moved fast. Needless to say the battle of Freeman's Farm never really took shape. I played the game like a WW2 game rather than forming lines and watching the odds like I should have and was easily driven back by the Redcoat onslaught.
