Product Description

October 1740.

The 23 year old Maria Theresa ascends to the Austrian throne. Thinking of her as easy prey, Frederick of Prussia invades Silesia and quickly conquers the Austrian province. Only weeks later, Bavaria, France and Saxony attack as well, and so the War of the Austrian Succession becomes general. But there is one thing the attackers have underestimated: The strength of character and fierce tenacity of the young Maria Theresa.

Maria is primarily a 3 player game. One player is Austria, the second is France plus Bavaria, while the third player has the schizophrenic role of playing Prussia (Austria's enemy) and the so-called Pragmatic Army (Austria's ally) at the same time. This is made possible by the division of the map into two parts, the Flanders map and the Bohemia map.

Maria is derived from the award-winning Friedrich, but has its very own character, including politics, hussars, force marches and imperial election. Subtle manoeuvers, seizure of fortresses, prudent retreats and Machiavellian politics are the keys to victory. However, players must be careful: whoever uses his Tactical Cards unwisely in battle can suddenly find himself not on the highway to glory, but on the road to ruin.

Contents: 1 gameboard, 20 wooden generals, 10 wooden supply trains, 2 wooden hussars, 22 stickers for generals and hussars, 152 Tactical Cards, 25 Political Cards, 2x6 National Cards (English & German), 3 Playing Aid Cards, 1 Political Display, 1 Compendium for the Political Cards, 5 Army Sheets, 1 Set of Rules
