Simple euro/wargame hybrid with my favorite combat system. The constraints on the non-Prussian players are difficult to manage toward victory, and playing Prussia is can be a nightmare. Two major downsides: First the length-to-depth ratio. If Prussia is doing well, this game can go interminably long. I understand the unpredictable length is part of the "game," but Friedrich is just a grind once you hit four hours. Second: Playing as Russia can go from fun and stressful to interminable bore if the Tsarina dies early. Getting stuck with Sweden for an undefined number of turns is just brutal, and almost indicates that Friedrich might be better as a 3p game. And if I'm playing this 3p, then I'd really prefer Maria, which drastically improved on this game. Trade condition notes: Excellent condition
