Queen Games’ latest crowdfunding campaign is for a big box edition of Wallenstein, Dirk Henn’s classic historical territory control board game utilizing an innovative cube tower battle system.
“The main goal of the game is to have as many counties under your control as possible, but that alone is not enough to win you the game. Players must develop these counties by building palaces, churches and guilds. In addition to building infrastructure, you must also feed your peasants or they will revolt. Revolting peasants can lose you armies and possibly the county.”The 30 Years War is a new printing of Wallenstein that includes many additions, some exclusive to Kickstarter backers. Here’s a rundown of what’s included:
- Base game
- Expansion 1: Emperor’s Court – Adds courtiers which players can use influence the favor of the court.
- Expansion 2: Landsknechte – Adds bonus cards that reward controlling multiple counties.
- Expansion 3: Military Leaders – Adds military leader meeples that provide bonuses to a different county each turn.
- Eketorp – A bonus game from Dirk Henn that has players competing for resources to build the best Viking strongholds.
