An 18th Century Battle for Colonies around the World
Battle Hardened Games announces 1750: Britain vs. France, a new strategy card game now on Kickstarter.
Battle Hardened Games is seeking backers for 1750: Britain vs. France, in which players wage a highly thematic 18th Century worldwide military campaign. One player controls British forces and the other controls the French, using dice and cards to fight battles for control of colonies in North America, Africa, and India. Game lovers of Axis and Allies, Summoner Wars, and the old Star Wars CCG will find some familiar mechanics here.
In 1750, you recruit generals and admirals from the 7 Year’s War (aka French and Indian War) and War of the Austrian Succession, and send them and other military units to seize your opponent’s colonies. You will also engage in political efforts to get other world leaders to support your cause, and play historic event cards at critical moments to swing the game in your favor. Gaining colonies will give you more exports to further boost your war effort. Making the right purchases will prove just as critical as your tactical decision-making.
Another unique feature of 1750 is that is features 18th Century paintings in all of the game’s artwork, greatly enhancing the historic feel of the game.
The Kickstarter campaign features single copies of 1750 at $45, with a discount if multiple copies are ordered. Free shipping is available for backers in the US, Canada, UK, and Germany.
Will you rewrite history, or will history repeat itself? Find out in 1750: Britain vs. France.
