255 1/27/2017 7:55:00 AM 1758 Early Season Britain Message CoS is a prequel to Clash of Monarchs, a game I own but think it is a bit too much work and the Diplomacy Chart is incomprehensible to recommend.

In the mean time I found an engine that runs the game I have the most plays in "A Few Acres of Snow". Sign up at the site and I will challenge you to a game, great game and you will not need a copy to play. http://www.yucata.de/en/Overview . Let me know if you want to play
