Over the last 10 years I have been working on more specific rules for playing the American Revolution with Volley and Bayonet. While I have tried other sets of rules for the American Revolution, like the original Piquet and Piquet Field of Battle, I have decided to come back to Volley and Bayonet for American Revolution games. The reason is that with a few variable scales and a couple of additional rules, you can play every major (and many minor) battles of the American Revolution with Volley and Bayonet. The biggest obstacle has been reworking the variable scales and the period specific rules, but I think I’ve finally gotten them down. Below is a file the contains the modified variable scales and rules for the American Revolution with Volley and Bayonet. Also check out Greg Novak’s blog (see the links list) for his American Revolution games with Volley and Bayonet.
Here are a .pdf and a Word version of the files. In the future, I’ll be posting files for each specific army: American, British, Hessian, Loyalist, and French (plus maybe Spanish).
