Martin Wallace is dipping his unique toe into the deck-building game genre with his new game A Few Acres of  Snow.

AFAoS is a card-driven war game for two players, representing the British and French struggle for control of North America in the 17th and 18th centuries. Cards are acquired and drawn using deck-building mechanics, and like most card-driven war games can be used for multiple purposes.

You acquire location cards by playing adjacent location cards together with matching resource and settlers symbols. Of course, there are several types of combat involved, including siege, ambush, and raid.
