Defeat Prussia before the Tsarina dies! Or, be Frederick the Great and struggle for survival with a mixture of courageous willpower, sudden inspiration and stoic patience.
Friedrich is a strategy game for 3 or 4 players based on the Seven Years War (1756–1763). The players take the roles of Frederick, Elisabeth, Maria Theresa, and Madame Pompadour. In a 4 player game the players control the respective nations — Prussia/Hanover, Russia/Sweden, Austria/Imperial Army and France. In a 3 player game, one player will play both Elisabeth and Pompadour.
One against all. Frederick is playing against the attackers Elisabeth, Maria Theresa and Pompadour. The attackers are allied and cannot fight each other. But only one player will be the winner in the end. An attacker wins if one of his nations has conquered all objective cities flagged with her colour (grey in Austria’s case). The player Frederick wins if no attacking nation has won before the end of the game. The game ends as soon as 3 attacking nations have been forced out of the game by historical events.
