Description Edit | History

Take command of the American and British Armies in twelve great battles of the American Revolutionary War. You'll feel the battles come to life as the American Continentals and feared British Elites try to hold the line against each other at the battles of Long Island, Harlem Heights, Weitzel's Mill,Trenton, Hobkirk's Hill, Eutaw Springs, Bemis Heights, White Plains, Kings Mountain, Brandywine, and the double scenario covering the morning and afternoon battles at Monmouth.

The game comes with a beautiful hard mounted game board with hard mounted terrain tiles, counters and thick counters representing infantry, dragoons and artillery. The game also uses the Clash for a Continent system.

As British leaders you've told the American patriots to lay down their weapons or you'll lay waste to their homes. And as the Americans you have pledged your lives and fortunes in defense of all you value. Take the role of British generals Howe, Burgoyne, Cornwallis and others as you stake your reputation on defeating the rebel armies. As American generals Washington, Greene, Gates and others as you've precariously placed your army in their path... The enemy approaches, the sound of cannon deafens, men shout commands, smoke fills the air, can you HOLD THE LINE!

Harlem Heights
White Plains

Bemis Heights
Monmouth (morning phase)
Monmouth (afternoon phase)

14 The Battle of Fallen Timbers, August 20, 1794 - Scenario 4 of The Northwest Indian Wars
The Northwest Indian War between the United States and the Western Indian Confederacy was fought from 1790 to 1795. Though little remembered today, it was a huge challenge for the young republic. Marked by greed, malfeasance, corruption, desperation and atrocities, it was a brutal conflict that affected and established national policies which have reverberated throughout our history. The pressure for national expansion despite its effect on indigenous peoples led to repeated violence on both a small and large scale in the Northwest Territory, especially in the contested areas of present-day Ohio and Indiana. This is the last of four scenarios covering the conflict, using components from the French and Indian War Expansion Set for Hold the Line.

9 Hold the Line Scenario Record Sheet
I created this little record sheet to keep track of the scenarios I've played. I know I could achieve the same thing by recording my games on BGG, but there is something about recording games with pen and paper which is very satisfying. I tuck it into the rulebook and record my notes after each game. The sheet is set-up for 3-hole punching along the top edge. Enjoy!
