Are there any games set in Eastern Europe or Romania? I've had this fascination with the region ever since I read a book set in Romania in 5th or 6th grade. I really dig the folklore and Vlad Tepes. Plus my best friend just married a guy from The Czech and they have recently moved back to The States. We've been hanging out a lot and I'm getting to be really good friends with him. I think it would be kind of fun to play a game in that setting. It does not really matter what kind it is or player number.

By the way the book was a modern day vampire novel called The Lost by Jonathan Aycliffe. I bought in an outlet store for like $3. Told in letter and note form like Dracula. It's got pretty bad reviews on Amazon but I've read it many times over the years and for some reason I really enjoy it.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

The only game I can remotely think of is Fury of Dracula (second edition), but I think that it's out of print.

The up coming game Scythe is an alternate steampunk history set in the 1920s around Poland.

First to Fight is about WWII combat in Poland.

I Am Vlad: Prince of Wallachia is a fantasy game set in that region (more or less).

You can also take a look at Warriors and Traders.

It has a double sided board: one for Western Europe and one for Eastern Europe. Was made by a Romanian company.

Poland is not in Eastern Europe. Poland is in Central Europe.

The United Nations at least seems to disagree with you:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Europe
Quote:
The United Nations Statistics Division developed a selection of geographical regions and groupings of countries and areas, which are or may be used in compilation of statistics. In this collection, the following ten countries were classified as Eastern Europe: Belarus, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, and Ukraine. The assignment of countries or areas to specific groupings is for statistical convenience and does not imply any assumption regarding political or other affiliation of countries or territories by the United Nations. The United Nations' definition encompasses most of the states which were once under the Soviet Union's realm of influence and were part of the Warsaw Pact.


A little farther down, you can see:

Quote:
The term "Central Europe" is often used by historians to designate Germany and its eastern neighbors, and thus overlaps with "Eastern Europe." The following countries are often labeled Eastern European by some commentators and as Central European by others.


So I guess it depends on whom you ask. But you shouldn't give people a hard time for responding to this request with Poland references.

Pete (is sure there are other definitions)

I think this one might fit your request too, although most of the map consists of German lands and Austria. Thirty Years' War is an important part of Czech history.

Wallenstein (second edition)


And maybe this one: League of Six
1430, Lusatian League

Thanks. I was going to reply with this as well. I Googled European maps before I posted this and went by the UN definition. And like you said, I think it all depends upon who you ask.
