Boxed Game Description
Description of Germantown, Washington Strikes Back! October 4, 1777 – Battles of the American Revolution, Volume VII
Publisher: GMT Games, LLC Designers: Mark S. Miklos and Bill Madison.
Germantown is a 2 player game of the bold attack by Washington in Pennsylvania within a month after the defeat at Brandywine Creek. It is a battle of maneuver and confusion, with a four-pronged attack confused by a night march. What was supposed to be a surprise for the British was a tragic case of Continentals firing on Continentals in the fog, with troops routed.
Historically, the British pursued the fleeing Americans who were running. Washington and his lieutenants are stunned. A lament, “a glorious victory fought for and eighth tenths won, was shamefully but mysteriously lost.”
Moderate complexity, medium Solitaire Suitability. Contains a 22 x 34 inch Map, Series and Battle Scenario Books, two Player Aid Cards, 169 Counters, 16 Tactics Cards, and two 10-sided dice.
