A Few Acres of Snow is a board game designed by Martin Wallace. It is based on the French and Indian War of 1754-1763. Its name is taken from "a few acres of snow", words of consolation Voltaire provided King Louis XV of France, when news arrived that the French had lost Canada. The title was also used for a book by Robert Leckie.[1]
