Washington’s Crossing is an operational simulation of the American winter campaign of December 25th, 1776 to January 6th, 1777 that resulted in the twin victories of Trenton and Princeton and turned the fortunes of the American Revolution. The situation is fluid and desperate for both sides, allowing for numerous strategies for both players. Victory is determined through both battle victories and occupation of key objectives to simulate the British effort to pacify and restore the loyalty of New Jersey.
Errata and Game Updates

I focus on American Civil War games but have found that Revolution Games also produces high quality games from eras that I normally do not game. After being highly impressed by "Stonewall's Sword" and "Thunder in the Ozarks", I have purchased two games in the "Invasion 1066" series and found them to be quite playable and with high quality components. I therefore though that I would take a plunge with "Washington's Crossing", even though I have never really been all that interested in American Revolution games (AH 1776 is still unplayed on my shelf).
I am again impressed by the production values of the game and though the rules are somewhat different from what I am used to, the game plays logically. Of course, my first play was rather fitful as I was trying to grasp the activation system. Still the game is enjoyable and well worth replaying.
