Yeah, it's pretty good. If you want to, I am happy to start over, with the additional house rule that Pitt cannot be played until 1757. And also this houserule: if he hasn't been played by the end of 1758, he automatically gets played then.

Because in my experience the game quickly degenerates into un-fun one-sidedness if the British get their reinforcements (and Wolfe) too early, or too late. Like I just did.
