Asmodee to Distribute A Few Acres of Snow Second Edition This January

The popular deck building/area control wargame featuring the French and Indian Wars, A Few Acres of Snow will be seeing a second edition early next year as the Martin Wallace designed title moves from Mayfair Games to Asmodee Editions. This new agreement was finalized between the designer and Asmodee at October’s Spiel game fair in Essen, Germany. Another Wallace design, based on A Few Acres of Snow, is currently in development at Asmodee but the setting will be a departure from the base title.

The Asmodee edition of A Few Acres will be available in January of 2013 and carries an MSRP of $49.99 – five dollars less than the original release.

About the game from the Mayfair sell sheet:

A war fought at the edge of two mighty empires. For over one hundred and fifty years Britain and France were locked in a struggle for domination of North America. Thousands of miles from their homes, settlers and soldiers were faced with impenetrable forests, unpredictable American tribes, and formidable distances. Despite these obstacles they were able to engage in bitter warfare, with the British ultimately taking the prize of Quebec. A Few Acres of Snow is a two-player game that allows you to recreate this contest. You can change the course of history by your decisions.

A Few Acres of Snow takes an innovative approach to the subject, using cards to represent locations and manpower. As the game progresses you add to your selection of cards, increasing the range of actions available to you. There are many strategies to be explored. How quickly should you build up your forces, do you employ Native Americans, what energy should be expended on your economy?
