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 great simple block game (probably the simplest of them all). Tense and fast, fairly easy to learn and teach, and very replayable.

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.

Beautiful, well-balanced game. Elegant chess-like game. Can't say it isn't realistic either ... Not sure about recent rules update ...

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.

The vintage looking map really adds to the feel of the game. Fast playing and fun with a real sense of the historical impact of the situation.

Damn fine little game. Plays in an hour. Plenty to think about. Stratego with historical flavour. Good introductory wargame.

The best game for this scenario.
Simple, fun but extremely realistic.

First Columbia block game. Good introductory game particularly for Canadians. I have introduced two or three people to wargaming using this title.

Great quick, light game. Not a lot of viable strategic options, but enough to make the game interesting.

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.
