Year purchased: 2013

Category: wargame

Designer: Wallace

And now on to my list of wargames.

An early deckbuilder put out in 2011 by Martin Wallace covering the 7 years war, the N. American conflict between the British and French (1756-1763). It was Wallace’s first deckbuilder, so it does have some weaknesses, but should still be fun to play.

I took a hiatus from this when Hands in the Sea came out, but as I'm in a bit of a Wallace phase, I fired up several games on Yucata. I'm terrible as always, but I think I prefer the stripped down feel of AFAoS. Might just be the ease of online play, though.

What is a Christmas card without a classic cartoon?

If I saw a snowflake that big, I would strongly consider moving.

Thank you Bethanne and Eric for the card!

Fortunately my barbaric mailman only slightly crumbled your card. (He really likes to squish things)

DeMo: It's an odd one, AFAOS's not a wargame, but I told him I didn't want a wargame. Don't. Not interested. Nor is it an abstract or a deck-builder. I wanted the truth. AFAOS's one of the truest games I've met. It will not lie -- to . . . me. Umm... So I just wanted that; I just wanted to capture the game's essence.

Critics, undoubtedly, take AFAOS to task for roughness and having a supposed possible exploit in it's asymmetrical imbalance. It is not quite, I think, as broken as critics make it sound, and like any B-movie, it can be enjoyed quite a bit and easily for what it is without giving any attention or notice to the supposed flaw.

Mr. Wallace has tried to replace it several times, but it, uh, hangs on as I really love the historical flavour and theme here.

Seeking someone who wants to learn the game. Preference for zero experience.

1-2 moves in a given week. This will be a slow game.

FORMAT: PBEM/Vassal

EXPERTISE: I have yet to complete a game

TEACH: Just from the rules

I’ve had this for a few years but, apart from a few games online, I never got into playing it really.

That was until my 8-year old pulled the game out of the shelf and wanted to play. Say what!? This can be the beginning of something beautiful!

He gets the game mechanically. It’s not complex. Strategically, well, we’re both learning still.

I’m the British but struggling to get my economic engine going. At the same time, the son’s French have been making a fortune in fur trade. His army is a little larger than mine, so I’ve lost a siege or two.

Looks like my best chance is to quickly get my villages or towns onto the map to end the game, although the French raids are becoming a bit of a nightmare now. I just lost the village cube in New York of all places as well!

I made the mistake of governing away that location card —St Mary maybe— that is the Brits only way toward the lakes, so my expansion is slow. Not going to make that mistake again...

This is the board state right now:
