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.
Histogame and Richard Sivél present Friedrich, as a novel concept uniting
the fascination of board and card games. Accurately based on history while
maintaining a slim set of rules, Friedrich offers wide open spaces for
brilliant chess-like moves and great depth for decision making. Taken into
Frederick's era, you will reflect on tactical finesses, smile about interspersed
anecdotes, and be perplexed at how often you are not able to count to three...
