What is Pub Battles:   Brandywine?

A board game where 2-4 players battle for control of the Colonial capital in the American Revolution at Brandywine Creek.

Objective

To win, the Colonials must halt the British advance on their capital in Philadelphia. The British must crush the rebel army or quickly sweep them aside to open up a main road north.

How Does it Work?

The Colonists setup first, anywhere north of the Brandywine.

Historical Setup
Historical Setup

The British must setup 1 wing on the other side of the creek.

The Problem is:

The other British wing can enter anywhere along a map edge

to the east:

The south:

Or the west as Cornwallis did historically.

This puts the Colonial army in extreme danger!

UNLESS,

They can move first and get into the woods and hills before the British do.

UNLESS

The British can weaken the rebel line with an artillery bombardment.

AND THEN

Attack with the King's Guards!

Risks and challenges

Compared to Supremacy 2020, this project is easy. We already have already sorted through which suppliers are slow or unreliable and which ones we can trust. Shipping and packaging is worked out. The most complicated part of this project looks like the custom wooden pieces.
We’ve been experimenting with local suppliers on this for the last 6 months to come up with the best and most efficient way to make these. I think we have a pretty tight system now. This is the only area we see delays coming from.
