Gothenburg Megagames has the pleasure of bringing you Europa Universalis - the official megagame.
The Thirty Years' War was a war fought primarily in Central Europe between 1618 and 1648. One of the most destructive conflicts in human history, it resulted in eight million fatalities not only from military engagements but also from violence, famine, and plague.
The war was preceded by the election of the new Holy Roman Emperor, Ferdinand II, who tried to impose religious uniformity on his domains, forcing Roman Catholicism on its peoples. The northern Protestant states, angered by the violation of their rights to choose, which had been granted in the Peace of Augsburg, banded together to form the Protestant Union.
These events caused widespread fears throughout northern and central Europe...
In this megagame you get to reclaim the glory and quite possibly alter the events and even the outcome of the 30-years war. As one of eight nations, three trading houses and five foreign powers. Are you doomed to repeat the same mistakes all over again or will you take this chance to reign supreme? It's all up to you.
The game is designed by Luca Kling at Paradox games, the company behind the Europa Universalis and Crusader Kings computer game series.
The game starts at the beginning of the conflict and has eight nations with four players in each team, three trading houses with three players in each team and five foreign powers played by a single player each.
The nations are:
Austria, Mainz, Bohemia, Brandenburg, Saxony, Cologne, The Palatinate and Trier.
Each team consists of a Head of State, a Diplomat, a General and a Religious leader. (No megagame experience required to play a nation.)
The trading houses are:
The Fuggers, the Hansa, the Frankfurter Handelshaus.
Each team consists of a Patriarch, a Merchant and a Spy. (No megagame experience required to play a trading house.)
The Foreign Powers are:
The Pope, France, Sweden, Poland and Spain.
The Foreign Powers players are diplomats, one for each power. (Megagame experience strongly recommended.)
