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!

Game fee is £30.00

Super-heroes, super-villains and vigilantes. Setting the rules for super-powers in a context of vigilante crime fighting in New York. The government categorised anyone with power as Afflicted Persons (AP). Various government agencies used AP agents (allegedly) for secret operations. The government has set up a senatorial investigation committee into the AP issue to establish a way forward for the treatment of AP. This is one half of the game: a large conference to discuss the issues and figure out a way forward. The other half of the game is vigilante crime fighting in New York City. This features an operational game of fighting crime and trying to thwart the bosses behind it. This generates input into the conference as AP either protect or destroy the city.

The megagame of resistance to the Norman Conquest - set in the aftermath of the Battle of Hastings. The Normans and their allies seek the crown and the rich lands of England. The Anglo-Saxons would like to preserve their kingdom and their family holdings. Other neighbours (Celts, Vikings and Franks in particular) may take the opportunity to get involved, or to use the time to settle their own internal affairs.

Introduction

I came to Megagames mainly from early RPGs, particularly AD&D (or, as I guess it would be known now, 1st edition). Even before that, I was introduced to Diplomacy in the office where I worked and can vividly remember the person who then worked for me restricting his communication with me to a few grunts for several days after I stabbed him in the back.

Diplomacy led to board games, military boardgaming and AD&D, then to figure gaming and Megagames.I heard of Megagames at the annual Salute convention. My first Megagame was a game by Andy Grainger about Operation Crusader in the WW2 desert campaign. Despite knowing nothing about Megagames and insufficient about the period, I was an air umpire.
