The Franco-Prussian War
Prussia Rising is a simple
and playable simulation of the Franco-Prussian War
of 1870-71. Two players compete in play which
provides enjoyment to interest veteran wargame
players as well as newcomers to the hobby. This is
the second game by Italian desginer Roberto Chiavini
to be released by High Flying Dice Games.
Rules for Leaders, Interception and the famous
"Death Ride" can be added to further enhance play as
Players move units such as infantry and cavalry,
which are rated Green, Regular or Veteran, in a
point-to-point game battling for control of France.
The game is intended more as a game than an
historical simulation, but one that still provides
insights of the real events in the war.
