I don't like deckbuilders, but this one is really interesting, and tough to play well. A really fun take on an under-used portion of history. If you like wargames, this is a great one to give you a wargame feel in half the time of Twilight Struggle.

Owned. It strikes me odd that Mr Wallace named it a few acres when the game is a strategic level war between France and England in Eastern North America. I was expecting something on a much smaller scale since it's a few acres. LoL

Everything present and in excellent condition.

English, French and German rulebooks. A little smudge on the cover of the French rulebook, some light signs of the English rulebook having been read.

I only ever managed to bring this to the table once, sadly.

Smoke-free home. I'll cover postage via RM or Hermes - UK only.

I have too many two player games of this length!

Great game (though I prefer A Study in Emerald for a Martin Wallace deck-builder).

Cards all sleeved.

Best New Game

A Few Acres of Snow 8.2/10
I tried a few games of this out on Yucata so far. The more I play it, the more it grows on me.

I like how it kind of "evolves" from Dominion - you're building a deck, but your deck has some functionality to it that's integrated into the theme and the board, rather than just buying VPs, $ or other cards.

I love the historical angle, and I haven't been this inspired by a game to research its history since I discovered Wallenstein. And this theme is very well integrated into the mechanisms, as discussed in the designer's notes. Even down to sieges - they REALLY feel like sieges, with resources being tied up and not usable for other things because they're being involved in the siege.

I also like the myriad different strategies - on offense and on defense. Settle, raid, ambush, siege... I might just have to buy this game, thanks Yucata :-)


Good New Game

10 Days in Europe 6.5/10
I found this game new-in-shrink for $2 at a library thrift store a few years ago. I love Moon & Weissbloom's Oasis, so despite the stock-photo-art cover, I bought it - $2 isn't much of a gamble, right?!
In the years since I've never played the game, but I've used the awesome, wooden, sturdy card/tile holders many times for other games, like to hold Carcassonne tiles when I play a tile-hand variant, or like in Hanabi. So in that alone I've more than gotten my money's worth.

Last week I finally tried a 2-player session of this. It's a light, puzzle-type game. Good for family gaming, especially b/c it teaches the kid's geography. It was actually a little more tricky than I thought it'd be. I'm OK on it, it won't ever be a favorite, but it might be the kind of game I bring to holiday family get together's, because it's light, short, and non-confrontational. Nice alternative to Scrabble or Rummy, for example.


Best New Expansion

Hansa Teutonica: Britannia
Awesome, awesome expansion! Love the new map. I tried the new 2-player variant, and it works remarkably well - by clogging the routes up with a neutral 3rd dummy player, it tightens the board up and makes things more tense. Because this was my fiancee's 2nd play ever of Hansa T, and our first try with the new 2-player rules, we didn't play with the "Wales" rules. But, I can't wait to try those, as they look like they will make the game even more interesting - you can only place in Wales if you have "special permission," and whoever owns more cities in Wales gets a point bonus at game end.

For anyone who likes original HT, I can't recommend this expansion highly enough
