The First Silesian War
is a simple wargame simulation of the First Silesian War, 1741-1742. The
campaign marks the debut of
the Great’s military career, however inauspicious this was for him
The war began with
taking advantage of a perceived weakness of the new and first Queen of
Austria, Maria Theresa, when she assumed the throne.
France, and Saxony contested Maria’s claim to the Austrian crown, as
well as having long disputes over their borders or policies of the
Austrian empire. Prussia
sought to claim the rich province
of Silesia from Austria and in a whirlwind (for the
time) campaign in 1740 seized virtually the entire province. Prussia’s Allies took longer to mobilize their
forces and work out the disputes they had with one another to form a
coalition to defeat
and overthrow its new queen. A long era of war in central
was about to begin.
This game was chosen as a print n' play release for
Gold Level Donors to the 2012 Consimworld Donation Drive
and is now
available for purchase. The game offers a short duration of play, small
table 'footprint' as well as low counter density but filled with action
and decisions for both players.
