This is a list of wargames from the War of Spanish Succession, basically, warfare in the age of Marlborough. The general who has never lost a battle.

Feel free to add more wargames of that era. These are the ones that I know of.

Now, I would like to see a wargame on Marlborough on the siege of Lillie.

The four essential battles of Marlborough. If there are games about Prince Eugene, it would be interesting.

One of the games included in SPI's classic quad-game "The Art of Siege" was the siege of Lille using no hexes and a rather pretty map. A difficult to find but worthly set of games which include the ancient siege of Tyre, the siege of Acre by the Crusaders, and the siege of Sevastopol during the Crimean War. Each is really a separate game with individual systems.

Since they're bringing UP some OTHER 'Battles' from the same period of 'History', here's this lil 'beaut'. You would NEED the "Peter the Great" game in order to have everything required in order to PLAY this.

BGG have added Blenheim, but someone else must have submitted it before me as the details are not those I submitted. It's a 2 player game and takes at least 2 hours (not 2 mins) and I think it appeared in Wargamer #8, not # 4 (but I'll double check this last point).

DTP effort by the same designer as Fields of Glory and A Famous Victory. Updated mechanics, some rather novel. There was going to be a volume 2, but allegedly a real publisher has picked it up. No further details, though.

Marlborough at Blenheim from West End Games. I have not seen this 1979 release.

Has anyone tried this one? Opinions?

Will be in S&T #238 to be released in August 2006...

Marby is a two player game. One controls the forces of France and its allies, known as the Bourbon coalition, after the ruling house of France. The other player controls the forces opposing France, led by England and Austria and known as the Grand Alliance. Each player has a variety of military, diplomatic and economic instruments with which he can attempt to win the game by controlling states and economic centers.

The Highlander Quorum is a study of a less known 1715 Jacobite Rebellion, the '15. In 1714, Queen Anne, the last of the Stuart monarchs, passed away. Her successor by law was the German George Augustus Welf, Elector of Hanover, who became King George I.
Scotland had suffered a political union with England in 1707, for which Mar was largely responsible. A persuasive man, he now began to organize a coalition of those opposed to the Union and those opposed to King George. The Loyalists, led by the Whig Duke of Argyle (who had ironically opposed the Union) were alarmed, but the Government took no notice, its members still scrambling for "places" under the new Administration. With the heather aflame, on the 6th of September 1715, the Royal Standard of the Stuarts went up on the Braes of Mar, before a crowd of 600 that would shortly swell to over 12,000.

This is not a battle fought by Marlborough, but is inside the War of the Spanish Succession...in fact the last battle of the war, the assault to the city of Barcelona (11 September 1714).

This game is focused on the assault, not the siege, so you can get the flavour of these combats, surrounded by walls and buildings.
