Sure Pat...sorry, need more coffee...

The mission statement for the game is fast and easy - we are hoping for a playtime no more than 4 hours and better at 3...

Complexity is pretty low - say Wilderness War level...

Oops - also just realized that comparing the game to Wilderness War might lead one to believe that this is a CDG...it isn't...

Has cards but more for flavor and special events...

Sorry if I mislead anyone...

As a Catalan, this is a very interesting theme, because after this war, the new king of Spain, Felipe V, destroyed the Catalan governments still present in Catalonia, Valencia and Majorca with the infamous "Nova Planta" decrees and introduced castillian-spanish language and administration to Catalonia.

These governments were reinstated in the 1930's during the II Republic but destroyed again after the Spanish Civil War. And they have been reinstated again in current democracy but still with a grand lack of the power we had 300 years ago.

During this war there were many ebbs and flows but after the defeat at Almansa (1707) the dice were thrown. The Battle of Almansa was the only battle in history in which the British forces were commanded by a Frenchman, the French by a Briton. shake

The Alliance deserted us in 1713 and Barcelona still hold out a siege for a year until falling in September 11, 1714. Today, September 11 is the National Day of Catalonia so as not to forget. cry

So you see, history still lives on everywhere...

Will this battles "inside" Spain appear in the game? And the political alternatives of the two kings (centralist Bourbon and federalist Hapsburg)?

Thanks. meeple
