it´s great: playing and owning Friedrich at long last as a distributed edition: i´m a playtester. it´s still exiting to find new strategies with the different countries - and: to combine different already tested strategies...and to watch how friedrich struggles or to watch and to be anxious about hildi - he´s my personal hero - i´m already looking forward to play Friedrich again

What a game! The rules can be explained in 15 minutes and off you go. Since this is a very asymmetric game every party plays VERY different, with Prussia in the most difficult role. Deeep strategy game, bravo!

This game recaptured some of the feeling I had when I first got into European games some 10 years ago, a feeling that's been missing from all the repetitive and boring German games for a couple of years now- a sense of discovery, esotericism, and innovation. Friedrich is a brilliant, brilliant game and a masterpiece of design work- a more or less traditional historical wargame with a traditional card game to resolve combat. Simple enough, but the subtleties of design decisions are difficult to describe without being able to demonstrate the experiential realizations that you will come to during the game as you become aware of how it all fits together. Beautiful.

Rating after two 3-player games. If it really holds up after several plays it may go up to a 10...
The game is very elegant, although it retains a wargame feel.

Simple rules and a well tested game give a strong historical feel for the mid-18th century without the pain of the usual 30 page set of wargame rules.

The players are asymmetric, which encourages conflict. Prussia running against the clock and with an early advantage in cards that needs to be translated into victory. The Coalition powers have the strength to win but each preferring not to be the first man to fight the Prussians. The game is hardest on the Prussian (as should historically be the case) but each of the powers needs to think very carefully before getting into combat.

The card-driven combat system will offend some because it lacks a historical basis, its results though seem to work well. Rather like WE THE PEOPLE from Mark Herman.

The game plays quickly, has a very attractive presentation and was very competitively priced. Highly recommended.

A splendid game that gets better with every play - labour of love and it shows. I love asymmetrical multi-player games and this is one of the best. Whilst some will be infuriated with the sudden departure of a key nation on a turn of a card, for me this adds an extra layer of tension and excitement to the game (and it's historical to boot!).

The game takes a few hours, but even when it's not your turn, your brain is churning out your next possible move, so down time is not a factor ever. I'll play this game, any time ...any place.

Wonderful game. 15 mn to explain the rules, but subtle to play. Plays fast despite complexity. A german game based upon fighting, with lots of interactions (try to find 3 other ones). Wonderful material (graphic design of tactical cards is wonderful) for a quite decent price. Is it a game for everybody ? No. Wargame purists won't like (a simple set of rules - no dice rolls - no modificators - no hex - all that stuff sacrified to playability). And some boardgamers could consider this game "too serious". One word: clever.
