The Seven Years War (1756-63) was actually the most bloody and world-wide war in the Eighteenth Century, many have called it The First World War due to being fought in Europe, North America, Caribbean, India and the trade routes of the world. It was a bloody and so exhausting war for all the major powers, that it needed to end up with a workable Peace Treaty!

A political megagame set in the late 2020s. In an era of increasing international confrontation, a crisis suddenly arises in the Baltic. As tensions mount and events seem to be spiralling out of control, can the crisis be resolved without a potentially disastrous war breaking out?

Designer's Comments

Technological and Government changes in the 19th century

The 19 th century and the vast amount of social, political and technological change is another big interest of mine and has been since ‘O’ level history at school. I first tried out a small game on the subject in 2000 and the game developed at intervals after that. It was one of those games where it was difficult to handle the amount of diplomatic activity with only one person per state and 4 or 5 other states to talk to and not wanting each turn to take an hour or more. In passing, this is how a number of my megagames have come about, 1494 is another example.
