It is bloody stupid to have only ONE way to win - by hampering your own colonies...
The is no where near impossible to beat. Everything depends on building your army before starting your push to independence and adding to it as the king adds to his. You can beat the king even when he has a 2X1 advantage if you hit and run and wear him down. The thing to remember is the king has no where to retreat to and you do.
