What is 1750?
Throughout the 18th century, Britain and France waged a bloody series of wars for nothing short of global domination. Massive sailing warships, armies of bayonet-clad soldiers, and their skilled allies fought for control of North American, African, and Indian colonies. In many ways this was the first “world war”. In 1750, you play as Britain or France, wielding your forces to decide the outcome of this struggle.
- Recruit generals and admirals from the 7 Years’ War (French and Indian War) and the War of the Austrian Succession, and send other military forces to take colonies by force.
- Engage in political efforts to persuade other world powers to enter the conflict on your side and bring their resources to the fight.
- Historically accurate colonies produce exports to add to your economy.
- Play historic event cards at decisive moments to turn the tide of battle.
- The cards in 1750 feature the amazing paintings from this era.
