Talk about a lucky find! I bought this for I think 5.00! I still own this one, and have played it with opponents, I know there's some nice expansions on Deer Valley but have to check it out.

This is the block game when there really were not popular.
Excellent intro to CG.
Still own it now for two plus decades.
I give it a 10 because it's perfect for introducing
block gaming to friends.

I played this recently and it substantially exceeded expectations. Short, simple tense - I was really taken with it, and I'm not sure why I hadn't been before. I like the simultaneous orders, I think they work very well with minimal hassle, the bluffing and hidden information works as well here as in any Columbia game, the 16 turns makes for some time pressure, and the two sides play differently.

I'm not entirely sure of game balance (the British may be favored), and the game is mostly one of bluff and logistics rather than tactics, so it's unlikely to be infinitely replayable. But I really enjoyed playing it and for the complexity and playing time, felt that it was very, very good.

This was a great game when it came out and has never lost its appeal. You can play a dozen games in a row and not feel like you've exhausted its possibilities.

A really simple game. A great intro to a real war game. Because of simultaneous moves plays in 45 minuets or less because one side can concede.

Blocks are well used here to create the fog-of-war effect allowing players to bluff and counter-bluff. Brilliant design that produces a very tense game.

A very small wargame with what seem to be very few choices. However, this turns out to be a strength rather than a disadvantage. We've already played many games of this one, and I'm sure more are coming.

The system is simply outstanding. The game rules are relatively simple and plays smooth. The map, blocks, and charts are well laid out and quite attractive. The game provides tense situations and a whole lot of fun.

First block game which I got it on Ebay for $1. Very happy to find a solitaire way to play it. Love the optional rules you can add as well. Would be better f2f but still a good game all around. The only thing I would change is the board. Would prefer a more realistic map rather than hand drawn cartoonish map. But other than that this game is wonderful.

An ideal intro-to-blockgames for new wargamers. Quebec is simple, but has enough options to justify replaying. I LOVE the simultaneous move option, and it gets bonus points for being an extremely fast-playing wargame. Experienced players could get two games done in 2 or 3 hours, which is recommended since the sides are so asymmetric.

My first and only block game thus far and it lived up to its reputation as a solid introductory game to that series. Fairly easy to learn and play, even for a rookie wargamer like myself, and definitely made me curious about other titles like Hammer Of The Scots.

I like this one very much. I have been on a "block game" run lately ... and the "hidden" orders aspect of this one is very nice mechanism that I have encountered here for the first time. Use the order sheets they have here at BGG ... very useful player aids.

I like the combat resolution system and the fact that both players write down their moves , reveal them, move at the same time, and then resolve any battles that may result.

Interesting game, IMHO every bit as good as 1812, maybe even a little better.

At this point I would play this game at any point just to put some more rounds through the test. I want to see if the set up game can open up beyond the french setting up strong beach heads. Great mechanic based on the blocks and columns, this idea in gaming I could dig daddy-o, I could dig.

The theme alone would make this a winner for me, but there is also a quite playable little wargame in there. The fog of war effect provided by the blocks and simultaneous movement works well, and the small scope makes a game short enough that several are possible in the same sessions. The main knock against the game is that its simplicity makes it also stale if played too often, but once in a while it is worth it.

My rating on this game goes up from a 6 to an 8 simply because I added the variants available from DEER VALLEY. This allows me to play the game solitaire and WOW it works well! I have the original version of the game from Gamma Two in the flat box rather than bookcase, and much prefer it over the newer version. I like the "pips" to signify Combat Value rather than the numbers with the crossed muskets, etc. I also own the newer version and am glad the beautiful map has stayed the same, as I have almost worn out my old mounted map.

Quebec 1759 is one of the easiest block games to play because it has so few rules. However, it has enough complexity to make it worth playing multiple times. Not as enjoyable as 1812 though.

A great intro to block wargaming. It's quick, fast, but there are still a lot of decisions to make. We do add in the advanced rules to our games to make it a little deeper. But I'm also a sucker for anything that involves French Canada.

One of the better intro block games. The minimal number of units make it effectively a game of maneuver . Generally, there a some small battles where the French are trying to bleed the British and there will be one really big battle, usually for Abraham. The simu movement makes the game.

Although an old design, I think this is a very good game to use as an introductory wargame. Games usually last no more than 1 to 1.5 hours. The current version is let down by lacklustre graphics on the blocks themselves, but the map is portrayed in a "period" style and I find it very evocative.

Fast and fun. The written orders are a nice touch, even if the range of possible strategies is fairly limited. The battleboard creates some interesting tactical opportunities and allows battles to end before the complete annihilation of one side or the other. Have to appreciate a low complexity game which can still squeeze in amphibious landings, Indian raids and deserting militia.

10 plays. The game is solid. Tricky... Bit of a shell game at the beaches... Brits must mind the clock. Interesting puzzle of a game, with lively dice factor and a beautiful board. And, it has the virtue of quick play. Don't try to scale the cliffs from St. Charles under fire! Played 4 times in a row and I wanted to play again. Takes about an hour to play. A keeper (as time, not me, has proved). I dig it. Odd to think that my Quebecois ancestors must have been present during this campaign. Update... I think is a wonderful light wargame / starter wargame with effective Fog of War surprises, easy play, and some easy detailed chrome (such as the battle formations).
