I just downloaded the demo and tried it out for about 5 minutes. Looks promising. I remember playing Columbia's "Quebec 1759" game many years ago with my brother.

Thanks for the heads-up!

I did a test run, not bad. It's got potential.

I've never played any of the Columbia block stuff before. Tried the demo for Richard, seemed rather a simple game. Was expecting more Kingmaker I guess. More of a straight beat em up from what I could see. Will keep an eye on these though, the Caesar one got good reviews when it came out IIRC.
