Excellent! Uncle Martin did it again. The deck building element provides countless strategic possibilities which are also intuitive and in accordance with the theme. This is one of the best wargames I've played, along with Hannibal and Washington's war.
The board lacks some needed visual aids (e.g. about what each location would yield) and it also confuses a bit about if some areas are connected or not, but it looks beautiful and it works fine.
A great deal of strategies to try and explore. What an original use of the deck building mechanic in a wargame. This is the first and only of its kind!

Congratulations Mr. Wallace. you did it again.

edit: second play. my opinion has shifted dramatically to: excellent! (again ) each choice in this game is skillfully and subtly intertwined with every other thing. There won't be another one like it. It's not a trend.

I first got this back in 2012, loved it, and almost immediately plunged into the community effort to "fix" it.
Though I no longer own a physical copy, I continue to play online, and have probably played about 100 games, and continue to enjoy it and regard it as one one of my favorites.

Many people consider the game "broken" but I think it is more accurate to say "solved." And it is really only solved at the very highest standard of play. My judgment of the game has matured over time, and the problem of a dominant strategy seems less of an issue to me than it once did.

Enjoy the game. It's a lot of fun. If you ever get to the point where you feel you can no longer lose playing British you can start introducing variant rules (especially No Governor on starting locations, which I believe comes very close to "fixing" the problem).

Don't miss out on a great game on account of the fact that there are players out there who can always win.

All that said, if Wallace ever comes out with a 3rd edition, that has some kind of variable set up, or officially incorporates elements of the Random Rules Generator, I would absolutely buy it.

Excellant two player game. I enjoy much more than TS. In my single play I didn't run into the Halifax Hammer.

I think this best deck builder game out so far. I love the different sides you play. Great theme. Scratches your brain in a good way. Love the art.

My only problem with game i have is how stagnet it can get when your deck gets clog up and its REALLY hard not to do that. I understand thats part of the theme and game but it still bothers me.

People who think this is broken probably need to get out and look a the sun.

already written a critcal review here.

in summary

either one player wipes the other out fast, or you both counter each other constantly for hours in a war of attrition.

Also the Hammer

I just want to say, God, on behalf of all of us thank you for all of the good things we do in your name, like charity and forgiveness. That’s an idea we would never come up with. That’s for sure. You know that better than anybody.
