A few miles of snow
Now that I’ve played A Few Acres of Snow 3 times, I’m thinking about British strategy. The French start with more VP, a free regular infantry in the deck (and free regular infantry in general), better rangers (the CdB). The British start with better money (12 to 5, although if you buy a regular infantry, that nullifies the edge) and a significantly leaner deck (7 to 11)
Obviously that last one should be an edge, but I can’t figure out how to take advantage of it. The obvious ploy is to wait until you are about to reshuffle and toss in a few cards that the French can’t react to (raids, military, etc) until they reshuffle. But I’ll be damned if I can figure out what’s best. No doubt if I play the French I’ll learn soon enough.
PS — King of Tokyo is super light, but amusing. Good game for the middle kids (not toddler young, but 7 is fine).
