The '1775 Rebellion' PrezCon 2019 tournament was a smashing success!
Teddy won the tournament in a tense 'Siege of Quebec' scenario. After a hard fought several hours, the game came down to a battle against one British regular holding a victory city that if lost would have given the win to last years champion Rich Beyma.
Rich's roll was both units in the attack fled, leaving the scenario tied after the truce cards were played. The tie breaker used in the tournament was for both sides to total up all faction cubes in play and compare the numbers.
Teddy narrowly won the tie break, 13-12!
Congratulations Teddy, and many thanks to Jeff for organizing this tournament!

Event specifics copied below for your consideration:
GM: Jeff Lange
The year is 1775. The American colonies are outraged over new taxes imposed
upon them by Great Britain. They begin to stockpile arms and organize militia. On
April 18th, militia members ambush a column of 700 British Redcoats ordered to
seize stockpiled arms. 273 British soldiers are killed or wounded before they
reach safety in Boston.
The American Revolution has begun!
Now you command the armies of the British Redcoats, English Loyalists, German
Hessians, American Regulars, Patriots, French Regulars and Native Americans to
decide the fate of the Americas. Share the fun in this light and fast paced game!
There will be a mulligan round where winners will be given a bye to the 2nd round
of Single Elimination play.
