Description Edit | History

Marking the 250th anniversary of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, Columbia Games has updated the rules for Quebec 1759, a game originally released in 1972 which simulates this conflict. Major changes include:

Removal of the Decoy units. The Decoy units are now referred to as "Detachments" and begin the game with a Combat Value of 1;

Introduction of units representing Generals Montcalm and Wolfe - leaders of the French and British armies. The two leaders have the power to move an extra zone by land movement and to roll two dice each firing turn while in battle.

Redesigned labels reflecting these changes are available from the Columbia Games website. The new labels also make it much easier for the French player to identify the Quebec, Montreal and Trois Rivieres units, which is a big help.

The revised rules continue to clarify that "double CV" which occurs in Amphibious Combat and for the Indian unit (which has been renamed as the "Ottawa Warriors" unit) while in pursuit, is to be interpreted as rolling double the number of dice, rather than modifying the die roll needed for hits, as the original rules had implied.

Other changes to units are reflected in the rules posted on the columbia games website.
