Rating: _8_

This predecessor to Maria introduced the square-based suit combat system that the Maria also utilizes, and Friedrich put Richard Sivel's name on the wargaming map. It's a pretty pure military game, with some communication between the coalition but not much. The fate deck can be a bit annoying but definitely provides tension (I usually play with a variant that only minor events happen on the first five flips). It's a classic one-against-many scenario, and both Friedrich and the allies must carefully position their troops and decide when to engage. The victory conditions make stalemates a bit common, unfortunately, but skillful play can circumvent that to an extent, and the game has some really brilliant concepts. I'm also a big fan of Frederick II as a historical figure, so I love the theme.

My best-rated wargame. Enough Euro gameplay-wise, enough conflict wargame-wise, elegant rules and multiplayer. The cardbased battle mechanism is pure genius. The chaos and kingmaker factor of multiplayer games is to a great extent channeled by the fixed factions. The Prussian player should be played by an experienced player as otherwise he can skew the game if he focusses too much on certain players.

The only game I did not like at the convention. This game has some interesting ideas that coalesce into a terrible game. It is obviously more interested in making an historical simulation than a great game. Maybe I'l try Maria at some point.

Winner: Me

I had signed up for a game of Friedrich via the geeklist previously mentioned. I had never met any of the people I played with and I had never played the game. I'm pretty sure everyone else had at least played it, and I own Maria, so it was a pretty easy learning experience.

Joe taught the game and played with Ian, Matt, and myself.

I really like this system, but I think that Maria might be a slightly better game, even though it only plays 3. My main reason for saying this is that Austria and I took the brunt of Friedrich's aggression and whittled down his decks while France just kind of waltzed in and took over Hanover for the win.

It was a great game and I'm glad to have played it. My only complaint is that the winner really did the least of our "alliance" and was able to capture a victory due to the expenditure of resources by Friedrich on the Russian and Austrian fronts. Can't the game have thrown us a bone and included us in the win? We did all the damn work.

I don't want to sound negative. Playing this game was one of the top 5 moments of the Con for me. I have a grognard nature that is hiding inside my euro finery. It's just infinitely harder to get a play of a wargame than it is to get a play of a euro.

Would absolutely play again. I'm just bitter about the "loss".

I've had a great weekend of gaming...

We started on Friday night with this one. After 2 years I finally got a chance to play it. I pulled the Prussians (which I was dreading) but it was much more fun than I was expecting.

Distributing your defense is really challenging, especially without expectation of how the game is going to go. In the end my defense against the French was a little too strong and my east flank was not adequately prepared against the Russians.

Ultimately I got saved by the event deck. The Swedes quit the war almost immediately. The Russians sued for peace maybe two turns before they were going to win. The next card hit the Austrian and French hand and everyone was ready to concede. After checking the event deck there were only two more turns so the result was not going to change.

On the Saturday we spent 11.5 hours completing our first game of Mega Civilization. My Minoans came in 2nd to the Iberians in a 9 player game.
