This year I added specific "missions" for each player. On the British side, a wagon train needs to make its way to the fort to resupply it, Rogers' Rangers must rescue some hostages in a hostile Indian village and the Virginia State Militia, comprised of three companies, have to protect several farms and a blockhouse in the middle of the table. As for the French, their main tasks involved doing as much damage as possible to the all too comfortable locals.
We got three turns in today. Two farms have been burned and some farmers taken hostage. The natives get an extra die for movement, so they have been able to hit and run fairly successfully. They haven't done so well in attacking the fortified positions of the British on the eastern side of the fort. These young students are learning some lessons the hard way.
We'll continue on tomorrow, and I will take more pictures.
