Description Edit | History

THIS GAME HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED.

Flintlock is a company-level American Revolution gaming at a scale of c.50 yards per hex and about 50 men per counter/unit. The system emphasizes the limits of command, training, and discipline, all in the milieu of the very linear style of warfare in the pre-Napoleonic era. In addition, it uses a most unusual set of mechanics for resolving shock combat. Will you have your troops go into close order, or spread our for better fire possibilities. What are the pros and cons of the rifle-armed American militia? Can your dragoon forces exert any influence?

Flintlock is designed for quick learning and easy play. Game rules are short, but they cover almost every aspect of battle at this micro level. Playing time is less than 2 hours.

The battles chosen highlight small unit tactics in the grueling Southern Campaign, where both sides had ample opportunities to watch, learn and practice, with an emphasis on Formation. Some of the great commanders of the war, from Nathanial Greene and Daniel Morgan to Lord Cornwallis and the infamous, but capable, Banastre Tarleton are in full action.

The Scenario/battles, all (well, most) with armies of one or two thousand men, include:

  • Camden (17 August 1780) Lord Cornwallis stands and confronts a much larger force under Horatio Gates, but the rebel militia disintegrates and Gates’s army is routed in a major British victory.
  • Cowpens (17 January 1781) Daniel Morgan conducts a masterful, tactical battle, defeating Banastre Tarleton and destroying the dreaded British Legion in one of the major victories of the war.
  • Guilford Courthouse (15 March 1781) Nathanial Greene outnumbers Lord Cornwallis by more than two to one. However, the British take the field but with such heavy losses that, in retrospect, Greene could claim a strategic success.
  • Hobkirk’s Hill (25 April 1781) Nathanial Greene’s Marylanders fail to stand against a concerted charge from Lord Rawdon’s smaller but better disciplined army.

3 Counter Organization Flintlock
This is a chart-form organization of the counters by scenario so that set-up time is reduced. It was created for use with a counter tray, so you will see the layout is designed to keep the separate frames of each scenario grouped together as closely as possible. Although designed for a counter tray, it is well suited to storage in envelopes.
