Lead one of the most prosperous empires of the end of the Modern Age and achieve world hegemony with the strength of your troops and the power of your wits. The work of Jason Matthews and Ananda Gupta, authors of the prestigious Twilight Struggle, Imperial Struggle offers games for two players that last about 3 hours. This title recreates the rivalry between France and Great Britain throughout the 18th century throughout the world. From India to Canada, passing through the Caribbean islands, the armies and fleets of these two empires compete for the leadership of their time.

Imperial Struggle is an advanced-level strategy title that history buffs and all those gamers looking for a long-lasting, demanding challenge will fall in love with. With majority control mechanics, open draft and card engine, the game offers us a historical journey through the Enlightenment era and its episodes of colonization and interventionism by France and England, from the War of the Spanish Succession to the French Revolution.

One of the great attractions of the game is its central board, whose design has received numerous awards. The game board shows a large map divided into four areas: the East Coast of North America, the Caribbean Sea, India, and Europe. In each zone of the map there are squares that represent political, commercial or military spaces that the players will try to dominate. Imperial Struggle's turns alternate between periods of peace and war, in which players must invest their resources on multiple fronts. The game does not leave too much room to chance, since at no time do you have to roll the dice.

In addition to the passing of turns, the flow of time is also represented by three decks of cards, showing relevant historical figures and events from the 18th century. Either through events or the action points of the cards, players will be able to carry out diplomatic, military or economic actions to try to tip the game in their favor.

As in any good strategy game worth its salt, Imperial Struggle offers players many options. On the map there are spaces with certain resources (fish, tobacco, furs, spices, cotton and sugar) and the players must satisfy the demand that exists at all times. Whether or not to control the market at the right time can be key! In the same way, both empires must keep their debt under control, which can be accumulated to get more action points. However, they can also lose if they go bankrupt.

Imperial Struggle is an essential game for gamers, but also for all those looking for an experience similar to Twilight Struggle. In addition to having the same authors, the game is claimed as a spiritual successor to the mythical game that recreates the Cold War. Set out to conquer the modern world at the hands of the English or the French and witness the climactic moments that marked the history of the world.
