Wars of Succession

Product Info

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 are played in separate scenarios.

From the initial campaigns in Italy in 1701 to those within Germany, the Netherlands or France themselves, 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 his adversary, the coalition of Danes, Saxons, Poles and Russians led by the famous Peter I The Great, who will transforms the dormant Russian bear in the superpower in the East.

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 efficiently 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 Options system already tested in games like Thirty Years Wars or End All Wars (whose 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!

Ageod Games is very proud to announce a collaboration with El Gran Capitan Association ("The Great Captain") – one of the biggest Historical Association written in Spanish – in support of the upcoming Wars of Succession game. Visit http://www.elgrancapitan.org/foro/ to know more!
