Hello...I'm looking for a strategic-level Am. Revolution game that is not We the People. I love CDGs but I'm not a huge fan of WtP, mainly because I don't like the Battle-card system. I'm looking for other options, particularly games with a playing time of around 3 hours or less.

Any suggestions?

Well, there's my copy of 1776 which I'll gladly trade or sell you.

Columbia Games has Liberty, a block game which uses cards, but not the same system as WTP.

And there are some magazine games which covered the topic at that level, but they may be hard to get.

There is also this one from 3W back in the day: Give Me Liberty
EDIT: probably does not meet the 3-hour requirement. Actually, I doubt any game other than WTP will meet that requirement.

Or you could replace the battle card system in WTP with little effort.

1776 is actually a fairly decent game. I've heard that Liberty: The American Revolution 1775-83 is also. Liberty nicely depicts the differences between the approaches of the two armies which is a nice touch. The bluffing element due to the blocks in Liberty is also nice. You could probably get 1776 for some pocket change if you tried hard. Liberty should be available through your preferred game store.
