    I have been wanting to play Trenton for a long time and after quite a while of painting and building the hardware was ready and I was left with the challenge to wrote an interesting game scenario for this extremely lop-sided battle.

    Because, whether you believe the Hessians to have been sober and vigiliant on Christmas morning 1776 or stumbling drunk and hung-over, fact remains that Washington’s army not only surprised them but outnumbered them about 8 to 1 as well. In reality, as soon as Rall decided to stand and fight to reclaim his lost cannon, his fate was sealed.

    So I had to come up with something more interesting.

    Excellent stuff thanks for sharing, I am going to have to build a couple of AWI armies you have made it look an interesting game.

    It seems a popular game. http://altefritz.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/trenton-as-wargame.html

    Have you seen John Ray’s “A Military Gentleman” its an excellent book and forum.


    I knew neither, but the blog looks well worth the read. Thanks!



    Really good! Well done, great terrain and blog 🙂

    Thanks, a period that is increasingly  interesting me. Your terrain set-up looks really nice – very atmospheric.


    Thank you for posting this. Your game is beautiful!  Heck it evan looks cold!

    “the regular troops, who had the keen edge of sensibility rubbed off by strict discipline and hard service, saw the confusion with but little emotion.”
