Here's a set of rules that I added to the BGG database just about a week ago.

"Rules of Battle" depicts battles during the "Age of Marlborough" such as the Nine Years War, the War of Spanish Succession and the Great Northern War. The game is designed to play the large battles of the period: battles of 100,000 men can be resolved in an evening, with tables only a mere 3' x 5'. The game is designed for miniatures 15mm or smaller.

Scale: 1 inch = 500 feet. Each stand is 1000 infantry, 450 skirmishers, 600-750 cavalry or 10-15 guns. Each turn is 10-15 minutes. Standard bases are 40mm wide.

Publisher description:

Fields of Battle Volume 1, The Great Northern War is a two player game covering a series of Swedish battles. The game is low-complexity and designed to be played quickly. Most scenarios have only 15 to 30 units per side and only 15 turns.

Each turn sequence, players will move leaders, move regular units, conduct combat, and rally. Player initiative for each turn is determined by combining the number of leaders on the board with a random die roll. The game also makes use of tactical cards which can be played to modify combat rolls, increase defensive values, or hinder your opponent.

The victory conditions vary by scenario but generally involve capturing key areas on the map or reducing your opponents morale.

Volume 1 contains the following battles:
Narva
Kliszow
Fraustadt
Holowczyn
Lesnaya
Poltava
Helsingborg
Gadebusch

(TEXT FROM THE BACK OF THE GAME BOX)

Three Kings conspire to once and for all break the Swedish dominance in the Baltic. Charles the XII of Sweden decides to act swiftly as he has been taught and soon the Alliance begins to crack. A 21 year long bitter war has just begun which eventually ends an empire and sees another one rising...
Pax Baltica is a Grand Strategy Game covering the entire Great Northern War and recreates the intriguing conflict that is often considered a side-show of the War of Spanish succession. Yet the conflict probably have had greater impact on Europe’s political, cultural and social developments than the latter.

The Great Northern war, a 21-year long devastating war, lasted from 1700 to 1721 and ended Sweden’s period as a major power in northern Europe and formed the starting point of Russia’s domination of the Baltic Region for centuries to come.

Pax Baltica is probably the first board game ever covering the entire Great Northern War. The game includes five different scenarios with varying playing-time of two to eight hours depending on scenario. The units in the game are high quality colored wooden blocks which give great flexibility for game play. The four-color map is divided into provinces which you have to conquer in order to take control over a country and to eventually defeat the enemy. This dynamic conflict covers large parts of northern and eastern Europe. From Bremen in the West, to Smolensk in the East. From Trondheim in the North, to Bender in the South. Playable nations are Sweden, Russia, Turkey, Denmark and Saxony. The game includes a A2 full color map, 64 high quality wooden blocks, 8 dies, various markers and rules including 5 scenarios.

As leader of one of the great nations involved.Take command and lead your empire to victory!

Nice game covering the Poltava battle... Not very balanced, but that is how it happened historicaly... Chalres XII had made too many strategic errors earlier in his campain and had few hopes when he had to engage this battle...

Polemos: Great Northern War is aimed at gaming large scale actions from this time. It is quite possible to stage, play and complete actions in an evening and even the largest action should be relatively easy to play. The emphasis is on the Great Northern War but other actions from this period can also be fought. The wars against the Ottoman Empire, the Polish Civil War and other actions in the period 1695 to 1725 may also be fought.

My favorite game on this war... It covers the 1707-1711 campaign of Charles against Russia at an operatinnal level... Quite nice, especialy with some minor tweaking to add up some historical chrome...
