Excellent campagne game! Well researched, and full of 18th Century flavor and facts. The historic confrontation of Wolfe vs. Montcalm plays different each time with the card driven mechanics. The rules are well edited, very descript and seem to cover everything. (made learning the game easier) There are many strategies each player can follow. The French must hit HARD in the early game to overcome the growing number of British Drilled Troops that arrive later. Additionally, the French must use the indians to help absorb losses. The British must use Johnson to get auxilery troops to help guide their troops through the wilderness. Whenever I play this I can't help but admire it. Nice job, GMT!

No wargame has done so much to increase the pleasure of playing the doomed side of the conflict. This clean system provides adequate room for manuevering and multiple paths to victory. The short scenario lasts four hours and is perfect for tournament play.

One of the best CDG's The map and rules allow you to explore historical strategies and get bogged down in ahistorical game play as some of the other CDG

The Tournament scenario is the best for competition- perfectly balanced I believe

GMT. I will never refuse an offer to play Wilderness War.

Have played over 100 games and it gets better every time.

The tournament scenario is the best 2 hours in war-gaming.

Mechanics lead the French to use a different strategy from the English.
My opinion of the game improves with each play.

Particularly like the different approaches the French have to use versus the English approach. The British want a set piece battle as they can usually afford casualties, the French have to raid and maneuver and treat their regulars like the valuable resource they are.

To date the absolute best of the card driven games.

The game has a fine balance of historical flavor and playability that generates a narrative during game play that feels quite real. Moreover, this game also has the cleanest set of rules of any wargame I have ever played, which is saying a lot considering this is a card driven wargame. Finally, the graphic treatment, extras such as detailed designers notes and an extended sequence of play coupled with short playtime make this game a real gem. Other designers and developers could learn a lot about good game design and development by studying the many things that were done "right" in this game.

The cleanest rules of the card-driven wargames. A superb game, marred only slightly by two many unit types. Once I made my player aid to cover that, though, it became easy to play. See my review here on BGG.

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

This is a superb way to understand this forgotten but dramatic war. Few games balance history and playability as well as this one. I love how the different units interact within the game system; it really illustrates the strengths and weaknesses of each type of soldier. The cards lack a bit of variety, and I wish there was a card for Washington, but these are minor quibbles.

At some point, while agonizing over whether to push (or defend) in the Ohio Valley, on the Mohawk, at Champlain, or the Maritime provinces, or suffering the relative indifference of the powers-that-be in Paris or London, it will hit you -- this is *exactly* what the Commanders in the New World must have thought and felt.

This may be one of my favorite games of all time and will most likely be the only 10 I give on BGG. It captures the nature of the conflict perfectly, in particular the problems faced by each side. When combined with the deluxe map it is a joy to look at set-up.

One of my favorite wargames, and for me one of the best card driven wargames out in the market. I find the game to be well balanced (I've won the long campaign as the French!), and exciting every time I play it. Rules are straightforward, the situation is tense (both players share the same deck of cards), and it is one of the games where you look at the opening situation and say to yourself "What the heck do I do now?".

If you get a copy of this game, the deluxe board from GMT is recommended. Comes with leader holding boxes that aren't, but should, be on the paper map.

I'm a big fan of event cards and WW doesn't disappoint here: from Quiberon Bay and Diplomatic Revolution events to tactical problems of small pox, the game accurately conveys the tough wilderness campaign. It's a wonderful, tense atmospheric game that may frustrate non-Grognard types early on (I still have to refer to the advanced rules!) but it is worth preserving with. It's my favourite wargame by a large margin.

Face value the game seems to be restricted to three fronts and repetitive gameplay, however all of my games have been completely different because of the random nature of drawing the cards (something I actually like).

The one-deck event cards makes the game, although some will think it overly chaotic. Personally, not a problem, but this is a tactical game - particularly the AM scenario. If you like to play your CDGs in a strategic, chess-like fashion, WW could frustrate.

If I was guaranteed an opponent this would be my desert island game. Absolutely fantastic game. The two forces have completely different strengths and need completely different styles when playing. The French can usually steam ahead in the first few years of the game but if the British can avoid a French auto victory the finish will usually be very tight. Playing the right card at the right time is crucial. Well done Mr.Ruhnke. A modern classic.
