British compete against the French for domination of the New World in a card driven board game of trade, colonization and military struggle in New England and Canada during the 18th century. Both sides attempt to place and hold colonial villages, forts and towns across the map of the wilderness of the northeast. Militia, Regular troops, Indians, Naval power and civilian trade make this game a game of careful allocation of resources, network building and judicious card play.
