"Every now and then a game system comes along that delivers a refreshing jolt to all that's come before it. It's often something that makes you ask, "Why didn't I think of that?"

1754 Conquest: The French & Indian War, the latest in Academy Games' Birth of America Series, manages to bring the familiar game play of its predecessors, but with enough differences to make purchasing this historical gem worthwhile.

If you've played and enjoyed 1812 Invasion of Canada or 1775 The American Revolution, 1754 Conquest will immediately make you feel at home. With its predecessor's core system of card play, combat and maneuvering in tact, a veteran of these games will be up and playing after a quick read through of the rule book. If you haven't played any of these games, you are in for a treat, and you can expect to feel comfortable with the well-written, example-filled rules and historical commentary…"

The miniatures are so bad they look like blocks of wood.

"1775" is actually a lot of fun to play. The gaming buddy who turned me on to it is excited about seeing "1754." I'd happily give it a try.

The blocks can also be obtained in a number of different scales to suit whatever scale your other block collections are.

Why does the art on the box have British soldiers in Rev War uniforms?

I own and played this company's /A.W.I. game. Not much to it. Overly simple and very little replay value.
