SOK is a two or three-player operational study. One player is the French, one is the Allies, and a third may play the Prussians (under French control in a two-player game). The Allied army includes contingents from Britain, Hanover, Holland, Austria, Hesse, and Denmark. Saxony is a potential ally, but could join the Franco-Prussians instead. Under French command are Bavarian and Pfalz troops. The forces of the Empire are available to the side that can demonstrate the greater strength.

The game system is essentially the same as CoE. A number of important changes have been made to deal with the fact that there are three sides. Map scale is still 8.5 miles per hex. The counters are brigades. Units are rated for Strength (in battalions), Effectiveness (a combination of morale and training), and Movement. Turns are equivalent to months. Each turn is broken down into several phases - supply, operations, admin, etc. There are scenarios for the 1st and 2nd Silesian Wars, the Austro-Bavarian War, and the Dettingen campaign, plus a huge Campaign Game covering the entire period.

Type: DTP game

The Seven Years War & The War of Austrian Succession is an area movement game of these two conflicts.
The game system uses the simple RISK method of combat: highest roll with a twist, cards are not areas conquered but are events that can give the player an advantage or create a disadvantage for an opponent. Cards offer extra troops, use of neutrals, generals, force an opponent out of the conflict, etc.

One of the best games of the era.
Elegant SPI design.
Original game dealt with the 7 years war but the General magazine featuring the game added scenarios for playing the WAS.

DTP game on the First Silesian War. Not very realistic. The deck draw mechanism makes armies far too flexible and resilient than 18th-century armies should be.
