Some Updates!

Hey everyone. Well I just got back from Gen Con in Indianapolis and thought I would mention a few updates.

1) The Kickstarter campaign for 1750: Britain vs. France is finally complete! It felt great to complete the fulfillment process. Thank you to everyone for your support and encouragement along the way.
2) At Gen Con the limited number of games that were for sale seemed to be selling well so that was encouraging.
3) There are still some copies available on Amazon (I have added a link to the product on Amazon on the right of the home page here).
4) Games are available in Canada through Snakes & Lattes and in Europe through Gamesquest. I will post links to those products once I’ve got them.


A few updates

A few updates-

1) I am planning on attending the GAMA trade show in Las Vegas on the 15th and 16th- if you will be at the show and want to meet up give me a shout!

2) I will be submitting some events for Gen Con in the next week.

3) I have ordered the prototype from the factory- I will be posting some photos once I receive it.


Quick Update

Hey there everyone! I’m still alive and kicking here I just wanted to mention that I am pretty excited at the moment as I’ve gotten a couple new quotes in from different manufacturers that look promising. I’ll be closely re-examinig all of my costs and shipping figures over the coming days to ultimately generate a new Kickstarter relaunch page with a lower funding goal. As of right now I’m planning on doing the relaunch late this winter or early in the spring. Just wanted to mention that things are still progressing and I’m still excited to get this into your hands!

1750: Britain vs. France Press Release

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.
