Product Description

October, 1740. The 23 year-old Maria Theresa ascends to the Austrian throne. Thinking of her as easy prey, Frederick of Prussia invades Silesia and quickly conquers the Austrian province. Only weeks later, Bavaria, France and Saxony attack as well, and so the War of the Austrian Succession becomes general. But there is one thing the attackers have underestimated: The strength of character and fierce tenacity of the young Maria Theresa.

Maria is a new game whose design is derived from Histogame's classic Friedrich. Maria is a game for 3 players (with a 2-player option). It uses elements from card and board games and is a delightful combination of ease of learning, subtle strategy, and Machiavellian politics.
