Ageod’s Wars of Succession is a new game designed to cover two major wars that consumed Europe at the eve of the 18th Century. One was the War of Spanish Succession (1701-1713), pitting the French & Spanish Bourbons monarchs against the Grand Alliance built by Austrian Habsburg, Britain and the United Provinces. The other is the Great Northern War (1700-1721), between Sweden and Russia (and her allies), most of which focused around the succession of Poland. The two wars can be played in separate scenarios. Or there can be a huge 4-players scenario allowing both wars to be played simultaneously.
From the initial campaigns in Italy or Germany (Blenheim battle 1704) to those within France itself, you can lead the great commanders of the time, such as John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough or Prince Eugene de Savoie versus their French opponents like Villeroy or Villars. And see if you can win a great victory and an even greater peace that will decide whose family reigns over the Spanish holdings throughout Europe.
And on the other end of the continent, Charles XII of Sweden, a worthy heir of the great warrior king Gustavus Adolfus will have to prove his talent to lead the small but powerful Swedish armies against the might of initially backward Russia before his adversary, the famous Peter I The Great, transforms the dormant Russian bear in the superpower in the East. And beware of the Ottoman Turks that may join the war there, or may as well pursue their Mediterranean vendetta against the old Venetian Republic to grab their last holdings in Greece (Corfu siege of 1716).
In Wars of Successions you will coordinate the movements of several armies of many different great powers and their allies, take care of their supplies and fatigue and seek for the better conditions to engage combat, hold sieges or retreat to recover if needed. The game will use the simple command and supply mechanisms that worked will in previous equivalent titles of Ageod such as Wars in America or Rise of Prussia. And the diplomatic aspect will be present, using a simple and easy-to-play system already tested in games like Thirty Years Wars or End All Wars (game designer Altaris is also game designer in this project).
Together, these features, combined with the proven Ageod engine make Wars of Successions a great choice to delight players interested in this era!
