Change Log


The game’s title stems from Frederick the Great, King of Prussia’s 1756 land grab of the independent central European State of Saxony, right on his arch-rival Imperial Austria’s doorstep. Frederick “gambled” he could get away with this annexation without triggering a general European War. He failed, and when Austria was joined by its Ally France (Imperial Camp) and then Prussia's Ally Britain (Coalition Camp) entered the fray with its mainland interests in Hanover/Hesse, that European War expanded into one of history’s first Global Conflicts.
