It's available

It seems like a cutthroat group game

There are no good videos for it (that I can find)

Played perhaps half a dozen times. The box shows a fair amount of wear, and the insert is long gone.

I will be leaving Friday AM, so I must trade prior to that.

Box is worn, but game is in very good condition. Only reason I'm putting it up is I have a hard time getting it to the table.

Martin Wallace again, doing what he did best in the good old days - trying to crunch a wargame and a Eurogame together (c.f. Perikles). I think some people call them 'Weuros', but they're not a new thing. People like MW have been doing them for years.

I've played Conquest of the Empire, which borrowed the whole 'bidding for an alliance' thing, but this is the better game. It's great how it's not really a case of "Who do I want to be allied with?" but rather a case of "Who do I not want to attack me this turn?" - even cooperation is totally self-seeking, which is how I imagine it was back in the day when this game was played out for real.

I had a feeling this game would be quite complex, perhaps a bit too much for me, but that's because I confused it with this. As a result, I was surprised at how uncomplicated the game actually is. The rules are short (though the FAQ is quite long...) and the game is perfectly straightforward.

It actually has a few things in common with Global Mogul really - Confrontational area control, with the ability to acquire unique powers for your nation. Plus, if there's a cleverer implementation of the whole 'roll some dice, highest total wins' combat system then I haven't seen it.

Another classic from The Golden Age of Wallace, and another one that hits my theme/complexity/strategy sweet spot.

Struggle of Empires recreates the various wars fought between the European powers as they attempted to become the dominant force in Europe and the rest of the world during the eighteenth century. Build armies and fleets, make alliances, establish colonies, improve your economy, and ultimately wage war to expand your empire.

I've played this with 3 and 5 players a handful of times, to all accounts it's better with more players. Shifting alliances are a key element.

Game facilitator: Donogh McCarthy
Min players: 3
Max players: 7
Player types: New player friendly (no rules knowledge required)
Duration: 3-5 hours (depending on # of players)
More than 8x4 table space required?: No

This one is in a lot with Project Ares.

I enjoy Struggle of Empires. With the right group of players it can be a tense and challenging game. I, however, do not have those players.

Project Ares is an oddball. We've only played it once, and while I found the design very interesting, it didn't generate enough interest to ever make it back to the table.

Struggle of Empires REGRET RATING: 8

Project Ares REGRET RATING: 6

2nd Year on List

I purchased this knowing I would have very little opportunity to play it, but it was super cheap via the BGG virtual flea and I am a Martin Wallace fan, so I said what the heck.

A war game that requires 6-7 to be ideal, a super dense rulebook, and no one in my group knows how to play.

I signed up to play it at BGG.CON this year. It was my ONLY pre-arranged game. When the assigned time came around (Friday evening) I just didn't have it in me to play it and sadly had to skip. Turns out they didn't play as I wasn't the only one to miss the appt. I feel pretty bad about that and am unlikely to pre-arrange any games for future cons.

Desire to play: Moderate (7)
