Here is another game of the Battle of "Flintlake Creek" using the Brother Against Brother (BAB) rules.
The US detachment abandons Fort Alabama (Fort Foster) and heads south along the Fort King Highway to Fort Brooke (Tampa, FL). On April 27, 1836, as the column of troops cross the Thlo-no-ta-sassy River (Flintlake Creek) and into an open prairie, Seminoles hidden in the creek bed open fire on the regulars.
Mistake #1: The U.S. troops slow down, and deploy on the flanks, on both sides of the river, rather than keep moving to the other end of the board.
The Seminoles are about to open a severe volley into the U.S. troops investigating the woods on the left. The lone Florida Militia unit doesn't realize that they area about to be wiped out by a lethal round of Seminole rifle fire.
Seminoles are swapping shots and withdrawing further into the woods. As a variant with this set of rules and Seminole tactics, the Seminoles have degrading fire (an additional -1 cumulative) each turn they fire to represent the fouled guns and lack of ammo support. Therefore, their rifle fire is essentially useless after 3 shots, but can still fight in deadly hand-to-hand fighting.
Again, more wasted time by the U.S. troops as they unlimber the gun, load it, and then fire it.
(A 3-turn process.)
A unit of hidden Seminoles rises up out of the grassland prairie to fire on the approaching 'white man'.
The only Melee of the game. After receiving casualties, the U.S. troops were able to break contact and shoot down the remainder of the Seminoles as they were relatively stuck where they were, loading and firing, while their squad leader was dead.
A good volley fire by the U.S. troops attempts to clear the road to the front. The U.S. will end up with a marginal victory and wagons full of wounded as they make their way south towards Ft. Brooke, located adjacent to Tampa City.
