Hi... I just finished playing Fallen Timbers scenario both ways. I found it to be a very tough, but entertaining little scenario. I couldn't beat it from either side.
First, I played as the USA. Seemed like the Indians were everywhere I wasn't! Once the Anthony Wayne steamroller showed up, I captured every Indian settlement/objective, but still managed to lose by about 100 VP's. Seemed like St. Clair was locked for the longest time and I lost a lot of ground early. I could quibble a bit over the victory conditions, since I clearly "won" the war in the broadest strategic sense, but according to how it's set up, I lost fair and square.
But, then I switched around and played the Indians and still got thumped by about 100 points! I got a bunch of the southern objectives early and pretty much laid waste to the southern area, but I didn't seem to get that many VP's. A few USA militia units then "backdoored" me capturing a few of my northern Indian bases. Although I recovered and Anthony Wayne never showed up, I still lost substantially.
I'm wondering what I missing strategically with this scenario. Seemed like the computer always knew how to maximize it's take of VP's. Plus, as the Indians eventually destroy all the strategic objectives, they start disappearing wholesale from the list of possible locations to win points.
Anyway, has anyone played this one lately, and how did you win? Were you able to win and from which side?
