This game is for you!

Card driven, with events and card points, you take the head of one of the most formidable powers of the era, from 1898 to a possible Great War. You will garner victory, prestige, strength and influence by making alliances, destroying adverse ones, controlling up to 11 other secondary powers, placing troops and colonies to expand your empire and hinder rival ones, fomenting strikes and colonial uprisings, leading the naval and armament races, all this under the threat of a looming world war. Fashoda, US-Spanish war, Russo-Japanese war, the Boers, the Great Game, German Naval league and Sarajevo are now all yours to confront and overcome…
