#UnboxingDay! Soldier Kings

Brant Guillory, 17 December 2020 ~ #UnboxingDay

“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

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



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



The map of Europe



Map Detail in Europe



The rest of the world



Counter detail



The rulebook and the scenario folder.  Both black & white and minimally-illustrated



Player aid cards



Event Cards – 4 total sheets of perforated cards



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.
