DESCRIPTION

Defeat Prussia before the Tsarina dies!

Or be Frederick the Great and struggle for survival with a mixture of courageous will power, sudden inspiration and stoic patience.

It is the Summer of 1756. On the eve of the seven Years War, half of Europe has formed an alliance. Frederick the Great is in deep sorrow. Is the annihilation of Prussia planned? Is it Prussia's defeat or is it Prussia's glory?

All against one. But only one will reign supreme. On a map of Old Europe, players maneuver their generals from city to city. Frederick must retain a part of each Prussian province, while the attacking powers savagely seek out their objectives. The clever us of tactical cards is decisive to winning.
