I've bought this lovely game for my school wargaming club. I'd like to keep track of the game's pieces, so I wonder whether anyone knows how many cubes of each colour it should come with?

This is important, I believe, as the number of units that one can put on the board is limited by the number of cubes available.

Anyone know?

25 red British Regulars, 35 yellow Canadian Militia, 25 green Native Americans, 30 blue American Regulars, and 45 white American Militia.

It can be found on the front of the rulebook. Great Game!

Putting that info on the front page of the rulebook, beneath a picture of some cubes labeled 160 pieces, didn't stave off the questions very effectively, did it? Here's another thread where the same question was asked: Piece count

LOL. What we're they thinking?! I hope they've learned their lesson.

Wow. That was silly of me. I did not see the piece count on the first page.

I went into an opticians the other day and asked whether I could book an eye test, as I suspected I needed new spectacles.

The guy behind the counter said, "I can tell immediately that you need new specs."

How can you be so sure?" I asked.

"Because this is a laundry," he relied.


Thanks all for the heads-up.

My copy has 30 green Native Americans. I guess that's five more than needed and not an error in the manual...

Yeah, mine had 5 more American Militia and 5 less British Regular cubes. Academy Games was quick to send me the additional red cubes needed.

Just got my copy, had a hole in the ziploc bag carrying the cubes and am missing 5 red and 5 yellow pieces. I emailed them about it, good to hear they're good on replacements!

I'm also considering ordering about 10 more of each color, assuming the cubes are standard size and color from a place like meeplesource
