As referee I designed a mini-campaign around a fictitious area of upper NY state. Both sides were given obejectives and a set amount of forces and made secret moves on a strategic map. When forces ran into each other we set up a tabletop battle.
The first skirmish was a by chance encounter between a group of French allied Indians and British light infantry and Rangers who happened to bump into each other while trying to sneak around the flanks. It was our first battle with the rules so helped get us familiar with the set.
The British force was about twice as big but the Indians were able to move faster and grab the high ground. Fire was exchanged for several turns until the British numbers began to tell and the Indians eventually withdrew with some casualties.
