The settlement at Port Alexander had declined to accept Empire terms for neutrality. A Royal Navy gunboat was duly sent to remedy this. The local population in about 1900 was 2000+ (its now less than 85!). For the game, I allowed the settlement sixteen defenders, split into three sections.
While the outcome was not in doubt, it was still fun to play. MOVE ONE gunboat misses the Station house, MOVE TWO a hit but no casualties. MOVE THREE a miss, MOVE FOUR a hit but no casualties, MOVE FIVE Hit on the buildings side. MOVE SIX hit with a casualty, the armed locals rout. MOVE SEVEN another hit on the now empty building, and it catches alight! MOVE EIGHT a miss on the barn. MOVE NINE a hit on the barn, but no casualties. MOVE TEN a miss. MOVE ELEVEN a miss. MOVE 12 a miss. MOVE THIRTEEN a hit on the barn, no casualties. RN Rowboat sets off with eight armed seamen. MOVE FOURTEEN Landing party arrives, gunboat now opens up on an unoccupied house. MOVE FIFTEEN landing party comes under fire from locals. MOVE SIXTEEN some casualties, on both sides. The locals surrender (D1).
LOSSES, two on each side. The station house is on fire. The local population now agrees to remain neutral for the remainder of the war. This leaves only Skegway, in the lower part of Alaska, which has not accepted terms, due to local disagreements.
