First of all, after suffering through King George's War in End of Empire, I started the French & Indian War with high hopes. A successful French invasion of Nova Scotia was a promising start. But then the game bogged down. I finally packed it up entirely. I'm ready to draw some conclusions about End of Empire.

The British ended up launching a low-odds attack on Montreal -- just for something to do. Otherwise, it was looking like a Mexican stand-off on the Canadian border.
The problem is, the game is just too simple. Maybe what it needs is a more detailed treatment of politics and/or logistics to keep it interesting. Maybe a more detailed Indian/frontier war treatment would help, too. I dunno. As it is, it all seems a little too simple and, ultimately, a little pointless.
