#UnboxingDay! Soldier Kings

“It’s an older game, sir, but it checks out”

Soldier Kings gave us what might be the first actual “world war” with a high-level look at the Seven Years War

Unbox-SK-01

Evocative cover, but with that patented Avalanche Press drop shadow behind that text that can make things hard to read.

 

Unbox-SK-02

The back cover.  Nothing fancy, but it does give you a good idea of what to expect in the game.

 

Unbox-SK-07

The map of Europe

 

Unbox-SK-08

Map Detail in Europe

 

Unbox-SK-09

The rest of the world

Unbox-SK-10

Cute dice.  Small; effective; purple because it’s an obviously Prussian color.


Thanks for joining this month’s #UnboxingDay with the Armchair Dragoons and we hope you enjoyed our recon of our recent acquisitions.
You can always leave us your feedback in our #UnboxingDay thread, or in the comment area on this article, below.
The regiment also occasionally musters on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, and occasionally at a convention near you, once we’re allowed to hold them again.
