This game is also out of shrink but in pristine condition. The player aids have been laminated and everything else (including the cards) are in the original packaging.

Love the world.
mbmbmbmbmb
A light war-euro (which often turns more on development and sniping than full-scale war), driven by deck building.

I absolutely love the card play in this game, with the need to combo cards in a single turn to manage travel from one location to another and take action at the destination. Everything feels difficult and thematic to me, strongly evoking the process of carving a toehold in the middle of a wilderness, while looking over your shoulder to make sure your opponent doesn't knock you on the head.

Hands in the Sea might replace this for me (once it's delivered). But for now, this is a strong keeper.

(Btw, f*ck the Halifax Hammer. Never seen it in my plays; never expect to.)

The first good use of a deck building mechanic in a Weuro, even disregarding the Halifax Hammer strategy.

This has been on my to play list for a while, and a pretty cool game it was. Indeed there was a long initial battle over Halifax, but we have no idea what the Halifax hammer is!
It seems this game was designed to enhance the friendly rivalry between the English and the French, especially due to the tiebreaker rule "The French win", which I was on the wrong side of - darn those Frenchies!!

I wanted my game to have the pieces like the limited deluxe edition, so I went out and found similar pieces. I also found canons to replace the siege markers that came with the game.

Number 42 (7, Good. Usually willing to play.)

What I said then (down from number 14): Picked up the second edition for $10 brand new in shrink not expecting too much given the constant talk of the game being busted by a certain hammer (is the kids name Halifax or something?). Anyhow don't believe the nay sayers. The game plays fine and if you are not raiding with the updated rules then you will more than likely lose badly. Plenty of tension to be had. Excellent mechanics and the asymmetry is brilliant and quite historically accurate. Go and play this if you haven't already!



Rating change: Down from an 8.5 to a 7

What I say now: I have a confession to make. I sold my copy off. Not because of anything other than I made a steep profit and I am trying to bring the number of games I own from a mountainous collection that is an eye sore to my wife to a few (well more than a few) well appreciated games. I feel that the game is still good just not something I am craving to play as much now. It is one of those 'it is not you, its me' kind of deals.

I wanted the pieces in my game to look like those in the limited deluxe edition. So, I went out and found upgrades for the villages and towns. Then I saw the cannons for siege markers somewhere, and thought I wanted that too!
