Flying Colors - Minorca
This week Dan K. and I took to the seas with GMT's Flying Colors. We started with Minorca, a naval battle between Britain and France during the Seven Years' War. The British closed the gap on the French line quickly and powerful broadsides were exchanged. A lucky shot killed the French Admiral on turn 4 quickly followed by an unlucky roll which broke the French fleet.
Britain has the wind gauge.
