Later today, four gamers from the UK join me in a remote game to battle it out for control of Cropredy and Hays bridges as my 30mm ECW collection takes to the field. The contest will be waged across 6' x 8' feet of my gaming table.

River Cherwell is in flood and only crossable at Slat Ford, Cropredy Bridge, and Hays Bridge.
Barricades have been put in place at Hays Bridge. The barricades count as a linear obstacle when charging and cover in fire.
Hays Bridge is a Royalist held objective. If lost -2 points from Royalist ABC. Recapture cancels this loss to ABC.
Cropredy Bridge is a Roundhead held objective. If lost -2 points from Roundhead ABC. Recapture cancels this loss to ABC.
If Waller’s Army reaches the Ash tree and the tree is within his lines, Waller concludes that the Royalists will be beaten and he releases his reserves. The two auxiliary foote regiments at Bourton Hill may cross the Cherwell.
