Historicon 2016: Day 1, Thursday July 14
The specific battle depicted the British assaulting a US held port with 3 objectives - seize the Frigate Wasp, burn the Shipyard and capture the military camp (the tents). If the Brits got 2 out of the three they win. The game has 8 players and close to 1,500 figures on the table. The rules for the game are based on Longstreet but with custom "War of 1812" command cards. Longstreet is a fun ruleset and great for conventions as it's easy to pick up.
So that was my first day at HCON - overall not-to-shabby!
