“GLORY & HONOUR”

Wargame Rules for

the Seven Years War in Central Europe

The game covers the Seven Years War in Central Europe (mainly Bohemia, Saxony & Silesia) during which Prussia fought a bitter and protracted war with Austria and her allies. The battlefield rules emphasise troop quality, ability of generals, role of light troops and the decisive affect of massed cavalry.

Depending on the battlefield results and the occupation of key cities the Diplomatic Chart will influence the political stance of France, Sweden, Russia and the minor German States. These may add forces to one side or call for withdrawal of friendly forces to observe and deter these states.

Scope: Included in the pack is a set of army level rules with a full colour Campaign system to fight the war. Once contact with the enemy is made there is a novel card game to show the “cat and mouse” movements of the armies as they attempted to gain a good position, defeat detachments and raise morale of your own forces. Thus your battles will have a context of when and why they were fought. There is also a system for fighting one-off battles.


Book: It consists of a 50 page Ring bound rules with colour cover with b&w content. There is a two-page playsheet (one for the Campaign System one for the Battlefield), which is also the back cover.


Game Aids: Two A3 colour maps of Central Europe, 1 page coloured campaign counters, Allied Armies Strength Table, Prussian Armies strength Table, Honour Points Table, Political Chart, Campaign Calendar, Playing the Cards Chart, Battlefield Creator Chart.
