The campaign game covers the Seven Years War in Central Europe (mainly Bohemia, Saxony & Silesia) during which Prussia fought a bitter and protracted war with Austria and her allies. The battlefield rules emphasise troop quality, ability of generals, role of light troops and the decisive effect of massed cavalry. Depending on the battlefield results and the occupation of key cities the Diplomatic Chart will influence the political stance of France, Sweden, Russia and the minor German States. These may add forces to one side or call for withdrawal of friendly forces to observe and deter these states.

Scope: Included in the pack is a set of army level rules with a full colour Campaign system to fight the war. Once contact with the enemy is made there is a novel card game to show the “cat and mouse” movements of the armies as they attempted to gain a good position, defeat detachments and raise morale of your own forces. Thus your battles will have a context of when and why they were fought. There is also a system for fighting one-off battles.

Contents:  51 page Gamebook, A4 set of campaign counters, Allied Armies Strength Table, Prussian Armies strength Table, Honour Points Cards, Political Chart, Campaign Calendar, Playing the Cards Chart, Battlefield Creator Chart and a two-page Playsheet (one for the Campaign System one for the Battlefield). There is also 2A3 Campaign map or 4 A4 Campaign maps (depending upon your printer).

Format
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.
