I love 1812, but even the best game can be improved.

My favorite tweak for new games in the series would be to use the fine print on the special action cards to make the cards fully independent from the rule book. I'd be happy to move the historical background on the cards to the rulebook.

And, if possible (it may not be) a larger font size would be icing on the cake!

I think the historical text would give it flavor in-game!

Thanks for asking for larger Print!

I actually disagree. I'd much rather look at historical flavor text when considering how to play the card. I get extra thematic bonus points in my own mind for instance when using Tecumseh in Detroit. And my kids learn well by reading them.
