TIME OF WARS: Eastern Europe 1590 - 1660 (Wargame)

TIME OF WARS: Eastern Europe 1590 - 1660 (Wargame)
by Niechwiej, Adam


A multiplayer card driven game putting players in charge of five superpowers in Eastern Europe: Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Russia, the Ottoman Empire, Kingdom of Sweden, and the Holy Roman Empire at the turn of 16th and 17th centuries. Minor states are also present - Denmark, Brandenburg, Moldova, Wallachia, Transylvania and Crimean Khanate. They can be a battleground of strong rivalry between players or source of internal problems. Includes five scenarios. The main scenario is for five players, but four shorter scenarios are for two or three players. Playing time: from 4 to 8 hours.

Contents: One mounted board (68 x 48 cm); five decks of cards - every deck contains 50 cards; one deck of Rulers' cards - 23 cards; five Superpowers' Sheets; 242 die-cut counters in size of 15x15mm; 104 die-cut counters in size of 30x15 mm; 308 die-cut counters in size of 12.5x12.5 mm; 23 wooden holders; one set of sticky labels; one rule book (20 pages); one scenario book (12 pages); one Space - Religion chart; and two 6-sided dice.

The heart of the game are five decks of cards - one for each superpower with interaction between players. Every time a player uses a particular card he must make a tough decision - play the card as operational points or as event. The background of the choice is need of growth of his own state or weakening his opponent's position.

The period was rich in famous characters (rulers and commanders) and critical events - for example the Time of Troubles in the Tsardom, the Thirty Years War in the Reich, Swedish Deluge in the Commonwealth. All these and much more are smoothly incorporated during gameplay.
