For a bovine on the lam, Hunted Cow manages to turn out a lot of games. Today they are releasing the first in a series of collaborations with Decision Games that will bring some of DG’s popular boardgames into an iPad/iPhone/Mac format. Rebels & Redcoats, a set of American Revolution games, will kick off the collaboration. (If you aren’t familiar with the original boardgames, visit Decision Games‘s site.)
Hunted Cow provided Armchair General with 10 free download codes to give to our readers. To win one of the free codes, just leave a comment below telling us the title of your favorite game, book or movie based on the American War for Independence. Only one entry per person. Contest closes at midnight on Sunday, November 9, 2014; we’ll randomly select 10 winners the following day.
The American Revolution is an unknown area to me. I own three boardgames based on the conflict. The only book I own on it is The American Revolution by Gordon S. Wood. It is my favourite by default. 😉
You can discount me from the contest though. I don’t own an iPad.
Sounds very interesting!
Scourge of War !
Favorite game: John Tiller’s and HPS Simulations’ Campaign 1776: The American Revolution
Milton Bradley’s “Skirmish”
A simple, clever design that captured the “guerrilla” warfare nature of the American Revolution well.
Movies: The Patriot and Revolution.
Favorite game. 1775 Rebellion by Academy Games.
Favorite book. “Rise and Fight Again”
Favourite Movie- “The Patriot”
Favourite Game- 1776 mod for Mount and Blade Warband and “Liberty or Death”(old Koei classic)
I have to say I really enjoyed the book 1776 by David McCullough. It read like a novel but had tons of historical information and insight.
Game – Empire: Total War (it has a focus on America’s road to independence, and the historical battles are fun as well).
Game–Empire Total War
My favourite movie-The Patriot
My favourite game-Liberty or Death
My favourite book-Washiton crossing the Delaware
1776 by David McCullough is an enjoyable dip into the war. I do love 1775 by Academy Games. For miniatures games I’m a fan of the Black Powder rules (with the special sub-rules for the conflict).
I routinely discuss historical gaming on my twice a month podcast Wargaming Recon. Best of luck to everyone.

Empire Total War
I have always liked D. W. Griffith’s silent film AMERICA which covers many events of the war, including the Cherry Valley Massacre. Also Disney’s film of JOHNNY TREMAINE and the SWAMP FOX television episodes helped boost my interest in the Revolution.
