The year is 1754 and France and Britain have thriving colonies in North America. New England has begun to expand west, from their settlements along the eastern seaboard, into the Ohio River Valley. In response, France has built a chain of forts to protect their American territorial claims, extending from Lake Erie to the Gulf of Mexico!
Virginia’s Governor sends a young George Washington with a small force to convince the French to leave the region. A deadly confrontation with the French and their Native American allies deep in the Appalachian wilderness sparks the beginning of a world war that engulfs the Americas, Europe, India, and Africa.
1754 Conquest is an area-control game that continues the award-winning Birth of America Series. Players for each side work together in order to coordinate their strategies. To win, each side attempts to control "Victory Spaces" on the map that represent towns and forts. The militia players receive reinforcements from muster points while the French and English Regulars must ship their reinforcements from overseas. The game ends when the Treaty of Paris is signed. At that time, the side controlling the most cities wins the game.
