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.

Temptative rating with only one played game. But I enjoyed it soooo much, even though it was difficult for me to remember the details. Not difficult, really, but with several options you have to handle properly.
Really nice art (the cover is just EXCELLENT), and I really like the components of the Deluxe edition. It's true, pieces are small, but I think they can be used with no problem
The game itself is really interesting, using a kind of Dominion mechanism. I have not played Dominion more than a couple of times, and I hated it. But this one, as with London also from Wallace, I find extremely nice.
The game will propably get significantly easier as you play and get a knowledge of the geography (and of course, teh actions).
All in all, and having no idea of what the Halifax Hammer is (and really don't care about it), a magnificent game.

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.

Great 1 vs 1. Select your pack cards, select your type of game and fun. Really great war game. I have play 2 vs 2 but i think is better 1 vs 1.

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

When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

Not a wargame at its heart, more of an abstract game about colonization. So don't play if you care about understanding the history in any depth. Beyond that, it is certainly challenging, plays quickly and evokes a lot of tension. Good fun.

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.
