Europa Universalis Megagame: 30 years war

Megagame in action

Get ready for a journey back in time to one of the most destructive conflicts in human history.
The Thirty Years' War was a war fought primarily in Central Europe between 1618 and 1648. One of the most destructive conflicts in human history, it resulted in eight million fatalities not only from military engagements but also from violence, famine, and plague.
In this megagame you get to reclaim the glory and alter the events and even the outcome of the 30-years war as one of eight nation teams, three trading house teams and five major powers. Are you doomed to repeat the same mistakes all over again or will you take this chance to reign supreme as the major powers turn up the heat on the pressure cooker that is the Holy Roman Empire? It's all up to you.
The Thirty Years' War is replete with larger-than-life characters and dramatic events that could easily inspire a blockbuster TV series. With its over-the-top battles, complex political intrigues, and family rivalries, the conflict is a backdrop for a game that tries to capture the grandeur and intensity of the era. History is written by the winners, and therefor this game has no ambition to be historically accurate in but inspiration for the actual setting, the different powers involved and the start of the conflict. Exaggerations and abstractions are made to make the game more accessible to those who are dipping their toes into the history of the era.
