I only own the PDF version. Best I could do is an 'Unzipping' video.   ;D

I have the PnP version as well. maybe I could do an 'How Not To Make a PnP Version of The Scheldt Campaign' :-)

Wait. You have the PnP version. I have the PnP version. Shouldn't we have a go at this in Tabletop Simulator at some point?  >:D

I can't imagine why we didn't think of that before. :doh:

Hmm.  That actually looks interesting. 


Also:  In hindsight, I'm surprised I've not seen more games dedicated to the Seven Years War.  Seems like it would be a fairly popular scenario to cover.

I swear, I have a moment like this almost every day.  ::)

There's a lot more than you think. They are just not obviously named.

Academy has 1754
GMT has Wilderness War
Worthington had Wilderness Empires
VPG's got Empires in America

There's a bunch out there. You just have to know what to look for

Sorry, I should have clarified that I was referring to games that cover the *entire* war.  I've searched in the past, and it seems like the overwhelming majority cover only the North American theater.  Games like Clash of Monarchs and your Soldier Kings appear to be distinctly in the minority.

Gotcha.
You're right that there are not many that cover the conflict in North America and what was happening in Europe and elsewhere in the same game
