Light Bobs provides a wargame during the American Revolution. The rules are named after the nickname given to the British Light Infantry in the period.
The rules are written to simulate wing or brigade level action.
The game is for two or more players. Each player is represented on the table by a special leader figure. Action is fast and sharp with companies of mixed arms and varying morale types.
There are detailed army lists covering the four theaters of the American Revolution: Boston, Saratoga, the Mid-Atlantic States and the South. The lists, used in combination with the army creation rules, allow players to move from one theater to another, fighting actions with different types of armies. For example, an army in the Saratoga campaign looks entirely different from one in the South: the former has Indians but no mounted troops while the latter has mounted troops but no Indians.
