Our first game involved a meeting engagement between French/Indian and British light forces in a heavily wooded area near the fort.
In this game the activation cards played a large role in the outcome of the game, partly due to the limited number of troop types on each side. In turn 1 the French had almost all of the activations first, so they pressed forward but found the British lights were then able to attack them casuing a fair bit of damage to the Indians and Canadian militia.

Turn 2 was the same with the French again getting most of their activations first. This time though, with the range now quite short, they were able to launch a devastating series of attacks on the British.

As we hit turn 3 the British were surrounded and badly depleted as the French moved in for a convincing victory. So first blood to the French!
