Game publisher Asmodee has announced a new agreement with designer Martin Wallace to distribute the second edition of his A Few Acres of Snow in the United States starting in January, 2013. The agreement was negotiated at the Spiel fair in Essen.
Last spring, Asmodee had announced plans to release a different game using the mechanics of A Few Acres of Snow and also designed by Wallace (see "Asmodee to Publish New Martin Wallace"). The original version of the game was distributed by Mayfair Games in the US (see "'A Few Acres of Snow'").
A Few Acres of Snow is based on the century of conflict between the French and the British in North America. The game design combines the popular “deck building” mechanic with a more traditional area control war game. The suggested retail price for the new edition will be $49.99.
