Sunday, I played my first game of Jacobite Rising published by Compass games. It resembles Commands & Colors Tricorne which covers the AWI, but it is a stand alone game and has its own unique feel. I played the Battle of Falkirk which is broken into two phases; I played the first phase. The game starts with the Government cavalry and the Highland infantry within attack distance of each other. I played the Government side and I got the first card, so I attacked the Highlanders to my front. The Highlanders held off the attack, pushed back the cavalry and then followed up with a charge - very historical! From then on the Government fought a defensive battle but the outcome was never in doubt. We made a few mistakes in rules interpretations, as one does the first time with a new game. If anything the outcome would have been bloodier and more decisive. I was especially happy to get my Highlanders onto the table after month of painting tartans. The Lowlanders are AWI Minutemen and the mass of Government infantry are AWI redcoats. I plan to gradually replace them with Replicants Culloden British.
