THIS IS AN EXPANSION! You need "Horse & Musket: Dawn of an Era" to play this game. 

The ambitious task that designer Sean Chick has set before himself with his series Horse & Musket is to trace the development of battlefield tactics, doctrine, and technology from the end of the seventeenth century to the middle of the nineteenth over the course of six volumes. This second volume picks up where Dawn of an Era left off, covering 1721 - 1748. This is a dramatic and colorful era, “the pinnacle of classic linear combat”. Memorable personages such as Nader Shah, Maurice de Saxe, and Bonnie Prince Charlie march their grand armies across your hex grid. Stealing the spotlight is the young and untested Frederick II of Prussia. Early on he suffers embarrassments and setbacks, stumbling into victories by the skin of his teeth. But by the time this volume concludes, he will have become one of the greatest leaders in military history.

Why are there two copies of the countersheet?

Hi Gary,

There is one version with a grid to cut the counters, and one version without if you find them unsightly and have a properly aligned cutting machine. Check out the assembly instructions and it will take you through this.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
