    Description

    Ludington’s Ride is an educational boardgame for the entire family. Up to eight players compete as Sybil Ludington, who makes her legendary ride to call out Lt. Colonel Henry Ludington’s Seventh Regiment Militia of Dutchess County, New York, to confront the British Army after the burning of Danbury in April of 1777.

    Mode of Play
    Riders follow a route map, incrementing their movements by the throw of a die. Movement is therefore limited to six spaces, with bonus spaces earned if a Dispatch Card is played.

    Playing Time
    Playing time with eight players will take about an hour.

    The Route Map
    Riders follow a route map which is loosely based on Sybil Ludington’s legendary ride.[1] The route map is divided into a series of 72 spaces plus the Ludington Mill and the Ludington Home (where the game starts and ends).

    Some of the spaces include houses of the soldiers that are to be mustered during Sybil’s ride. These spaces include a house icon. A white space with an icon is the house of a Company Captain. If a Captain is mustered, the entire company is deemed to be mustered.

    Six spaces on the game board require the Rider to draw a Dispatch Card to determine what occurs after the Rider lands on the space.

    Ten spaces on the game board require the Rider to draw a History Card. Up to 100 additional points can be earned by correctly answering the cards.
