Retreats and rally checks are a game-changer. Feels like the right mechanism for this conflict.

We'll all be doing all we can to keep morale bolstered.

I'm looking at scenario 1 and I suspect some typo. Only 4 Brit units are there? Probably all units in the lower block should be British.

meeple Hooray and thanks! Its ironic that cavalry doesn't hit on sabers.

There are all kinds of interesting new things here that will make the 18th Century games different from all others. The rules are well written; the Leader Ability Summary on Page 16 is particularly useful, as leaders are very important in this new system in different and new ways.

The scenarios generally require more Victory Banners than in some other C&C games.

No, the units left beside the british are the british Allies (Hessians),
you need only new glasses, to distinguish the hessian blue blocks from the Continental blue blocks whistle

Wow, I'm surprised to see the overall look *so* close to the GMT look, From the stickers to the scenario pages... I thought Compass would have tried to develop its own visual identity (while not straying too far from what fans of the system have been using).

I wish they would've used another color rather than two shades of blue.

Ah! Now that you mention it, I can actually see a difference, if I zoom the pdf to 200%. One thing still unclear: I don't trust my eyes anymore...but it seems to me that Acland star has the same exact color as the Continental generals...

Read the rulebook, plan for all contingencies, and…read the rulebook again.

Yeah, it should probably be the darker blue.

Scenario 4, the title reads
Bemis Heights (British Redoubts) - 7 October 1775

date should be 7 October 1777

Played the first scenario today. The Aclan star is misprinted. It should be a darker blue.
