The dynastic struggle began when France's Louis XIV attempted to place his grandson, Philip IV, on the throne of Spain. The other major powers saw that as a threat, and so supported their own candidate, Charles III. That in turn began over a decade of fighting that grew into a general struggle for domination over all of Western Europe.

This list was based on the old Warfare in the Age of Marlborough list http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi... by Shyue Chou Chuang as he expressed that he doesn’t want to not manage this old list anymore.

Battle of Denain

Average prices and availability : Dec 2006

The players, representing the powers of the Grand Alliance, will fight the Bourbon forces composed by French, Castilian and Bavarian troops. Their goal, defined by a hidden agenda, is to obtain the best commercial and territorial concessions, and conquer the Bourbon territories. But this is no cooperative game: the winning player will need strategy and negotiation skills to achieve the best deals with the enemy and thus be the country with the most benefits thanks to the Peace of Utrecht.

It will be published in autumn 2014 in both English and Catalan editions.

by Frédéric Bey

Vae Victis issue 20. This game uses the same system (with some minor corrections and modifications) that was used in Vae Victis issue 6, "Fontenoy 1745." This battle ended the Spanish War of Succession. One turn represents one hour of real time, an infantry counter represents a brigade of one or more regiments, and a cavalry counter represents four to eight squadrons.
As with all Vae Victis games, the counters need to be cut out and mounted. The rules are entirely in French, although translations are available online.

# Flanders and Rhin strategic campaigns

by Allan Poindexter and W.P. Guthrie

This army-level strategic game, first published in The Wargamer magazine (#61), is a simulation of the battles of The War of the Spanish Succession, 1702-1714.
One player takes command of the French; the other player plays the Allied forces (British, Dutch, Austrians, etc.).
Nine scenarios and one Campaign game cover major battles such as Blenheim, Moselle, Landau, or the complete War. Victory is dependent on the scenario being played, but in most instances it is based on points gained through capturing and eliminating opponent's units, capturing supply trains, and occupying cities and fortresses.

# Turin 1706

by Giacomo Fedele

There are two different games inside the box: one on the field battle fought before the city and the other for the siege itself. The quality of the maps is not very high, while the counters (more than 500) are a work of art, with splendid reproduction of the period uniforms.
The rules seems of medium complexity and of the usual kind for the field battle, while they seems very peculiar for the siege battle itself.

"A Famous Victory (AFV) allows players to recreate two of the major battles - Blenheim and Ramillies - fought by England and her continental allies against the ambitions of the Sun King, Louis XIV, during the War of the Spanish Succession, a war that revealed John Churchill, First Duke of Marlborough, as England's greatest Field Commander and one of the true military geniuses in history."

Global Conflict

by Joseph Miranda

Marlborough: War of the Spanish Succession, is a wargame of intermediate-to-high complexity, designed by Joseph Miranda.
Itis a two player game. One controls the forces of France and its allies, known as the Bourbon coalition, after the ruling house of France. The other player controls the forces opposing France, led by England and Austria and known as the Grand Alliance. Each player has a variety of military, diplomatic and economic instruments with which he can attempt to win the game by controlling states and economic centers.
The game includes several scenarios. Shorter scenarios represent critical parts of the war, while the "Grand Design" scenario covers the entire war. Certain rules are designated "optional," and the players don't have to use them. The optional rules are suggested for use only when playing the Grand Design scenario, as they add considerable complexity, historical detail and playing time.
The 34x22" large-hex map shows western and central Europe during the early 18th century. The grid of hexagons printed over the map provides locations for playing pieces and geographic features. During the game, the cardboard pieces are placed within individual hexes.
Each game turn represents one year; each hex scales to 50 miles. Each army represents 10,000 to 20,000 soldiers and support personnel, camp followers, etc. A leader represents that person plus his guards, entourage, lackeys, wine cellars, etc. A fleet represents 60 warships and an indeterminate number of transports.

This simulates two of the "Duke of Marlborough's" Battles during the "War of the Spanish Succession" featuring Blenheim(1703) & Oudenarde(1708). It has two 22-inch by 17-inch mapsheets in four sections that have to be put together, and the game's two countersheets have to be mounted and cut apart prior to commencing gameplay with these. There are plenty of Cavalry involved in these, as well as the Dragoons which seem to be in transition in Historical terms.
