Love that cover.


N There'll be fighting from beginning to end in this game, and what a system for doing it! Yes, it's abstract, but it accomplishes so much with only a few, relatively-easy-to-explain rules! I love the card-based battling system, how it makes one use bluffing and restraint. Prussia's got a handful of cards, but she just fought a big battle with Austria in a Heart territory. As France, is now the time to strike? If a battle is going badly for me, should I continue with a battle or make a retreat? Should I force my opponent to keep playing cards to bleed them, or will that just leave an opening for the other players to attack? (this game is all-against-one, but there is only one winner). Each side plays uniquely, with Prussia trying to hold out as long as possible, Russia fighting on two fronts, Austria trying to carve up the middle, and France waiting for just the right time to strike a decisive blow. The map is open for a lot of maneuvering, and a few well-placed supply trains blocking retreat can destroy armies.

E The Cards of Fate are a divisive aspect of this game. It can lead to Russia or France taking over the Imperial Army (normally under Austria's control), so if the IA was on the verge of victory... well, too bad for Austria. I can imagine this element of luck driving some players crazy. However... what the CoF also do is create an uncertain timeline of when the game will finish. Maybe the time to strike IS now, as you don't know if you will have another chance, and it pushes you to be aggressive. The fact that you DO know that certain events can occur puts you one ahead of your historical counterparts!

S This is a long game, and there will be downtime. You do need to keep an eye on what other players are doing because that will affect your timing, but yes, downtime (and particularly for France).

This is considered a euro by some war gamers, and definitely a crazy chit based war game by many euro gamers. There is s very interesting card based battle system and asymmetric game play/win conditions. Seems to harken back to our early days of war gaming, but in a more evolved manner.

I was SUPER excited to play this game, and I would still love to, but I put Maria on my 2017 10x10 and it seems way more likely to get played as a 3p game instead or 4-5.

Having finally played my beloved "in" to this hobby once again for the first time in eons at last year's DTC, and letting ol' Friedrich make an uncharacteristic error that handed victory to a deftly-played France, I'm eager to try once more, now that I've hopefully cleared away a tiny bit of some of the rust. One Michael Harper will be at the table, along with myself; we will need at least one more to play, but two would be better! This will be Saturday at 8am in... oh, let's say the main ballroom, unless someone has a better suggestion for locale. Who's with us?

# of Players: 3 to 4
Day/Time/Location to Meet: Saturday, 8am, round tables in the hallway near the Boca Rooms and the Governors Boardroom
Expected Playing Time: 7 yea- er, 3 to 4 hours
Requested Experience Level of Players: n00bz welcome, grizzled veterans equally so! All are welcome!

Players:

1) Yours truly (I'll happily play Prussia / Hannover, unless someone else wants it)
2) Michael Harper (not sure if the one I know is one of the five people who appear under that name in a User search on BGG)
3) Eric "Ukla the" Mock (Russia)
4) Josh

Medium Scale

Theme: 7-year war in central Europe

The game is fine. There is quite enough to think about in terms of strategy. I found difficult to figure out how to play it efficiently though. It deserves more play to really capture it, probably.

My rating: 7,5/10

The Maria stream showed me (light) wargames are not as daunting as one might think. I liked the mechanics in Maria and I would love to see a play of Friedrich as well!
