Braddock’s Defeat is a conflict simulation of the French and Indian War battle that ended the British expedition to capture French Fort Duquesne. Not an ambush, as is popularly thought, the battle was really a meeting engagement. The French in Fort Duquesne, told by their scouts that a large British force with guns was approaching, sent elements of the Duquesne garrison on a preemptive strike. The French force met the British force before they could set up an ambush. The game is for two players or is highly suitable for solitaire play.
