I just wanted to recommend that anyone new to the game try Kings Mountain first. This is one of the best scenarios for a new player to get the idea of tactics. The scenario book starts at Long Island, and I feel that this scenario is not a good one to start with.

Kings Mountain can be tedious for en experienced player but it really shows how the game works. No artillery, no horses. Just infantry. Simple and tactical. Sort of cat chases mouse. More experienced player should take the brits.

The rest of the scenarios can be played in order pretty easily. But skip Harlem heights until about your 4th or 5th game- This scenario should not be at the beginning of the book, I feel due to the victory conditions don't reflect what a typical game is. Its fun, its different, but not the best reflection of the game for a beginner
