Great AAR! I really love this game and I agree that it is one of the best in the AGEOD series. Personally, I prefer to play the french as I like the guerilla warfare. Losing Fort Duqesne so early is bad but it is possible to recapture it with your indians. With some luck you might even capture the British artillery which is a great way to strengthen the defences of Fort Duqesne (the only location I have ever built a depot when playing as the french).
