138 8/5/2020 5:32:00 PM 1758 Early Season Britain Message Thanks for the game, Ron. Really not sure what the French can do when the Brits get reinforcements and Wolfe early on. Wolfe also lucky to win two of the three battles when the odds were for Montcalm.

I'm wondering whether a mechanism where reinforcements cost VPs would balance out the luck of the draw a bit.
137 8/5/2020 4:29:00 PM 1758 Early Season France Message I meant to say

You did have another reinforcement card.
