The failed siege of Hull and the Battle of Edgehill represent the initial fights of the English Civil War.
Especially the latter, where its inconclusive outcome denied both factions the strategic advantage they needed to put an end to the war quickly.

“I had rather have a plain, russet-coated Captain, that knows what he fights for, and loves what he knows, than that you call a Gentleman and is nothing else” – Oliver Cromwell, 1643
The shadow of the Thirty Years War hit the British Isles in 1625, as Charles I became King of England. Accustomed to a weaker Scottish Parliament, the new King found fiercer opposition from the Parliament in London.
Now, only two decades later, open war has started with the Royalists facing the Parliamentarians, and the conflict is raging in England and Scotland.
The Country is at odds, its population forced to take a side and torn apart by religious divisions.

A Take it Easy approach of Wars of Successions, Ageod’s future release
End of 2016, Ageod will release a new title, ‘Wars of Successions’. While the scope of the game is huge, playing it will be simple and more accessible than previous grand strategy titles of the brand.
The game goes back to the basic rules that made Ageod initial successes. Here a short recap!

This is a first (and experimental) post to see if we can spark some positive discussion about topics related to wargames and to help us better understand your views and opinions about stuff we care about. So here you go.
Most of the time, wargames depict conflicts with surgical precision and analytical rigor. Nevertheless, they tend to focus only on the military (or close related) aspects. That’s pretty self-evident, of course, as wargames are about war, after all. But we shall not forget the all conflicts are not a mere confrontation of brute force. Also, the more a conflict is controversial, the more it is difficult to show it exclusively from the military perspective.

Developers from Ageod are very proud to reveal today the main art for their new project, Wars of Succession!
The game will allow you to take the lead of different Great Powers during the turmoil of two greatest wars of the early XVIII° century. The War of Spanish Succession (1701-1713) pitting the French & Spanish Bourbons monarchs against the Grand Alliance built by Austrian Habsburg, Britain and the United Provinces, andthe Great Northern War (1700-1721), between Sweden and Russia (and her allies), most of which focused around the succession of Poland.

Early XVIII° century. The Spanish Empire, the empire on which the sun never sets, is facing deadly menaces. Under the pressure of internal and external forces and mighty neighbours, he is losing the grip and the influence over Europe.
For decades numerous conflicts have drained massive resources without bringing any real advantage, worse, causing territorial losses, and now the last Habsburg King of Spain is dying without having a direct heir. His will names the grandson of France Louis XIV as heir, but the Austrian branch of the family is contesting it.

Thirty Years’ War has been updated to version 1.01 and this update it’s very huge!
A lot of improvements and bug fixes have been added, enhancing the game's experience significantly!
Among all the changes, now the cost for Protestant Artillery have been reduced, the AI behaviour during winter months is improved (now she can look for a city to pass the winter months if she has supply problems) and now during sieges you have to be careful about the "desease event"!

Today it’s the 1st of June, and on this day we remember the first land engagement of the American Civil War.
On this day, 155 years ago, about 210 virginian soldiers were occupying Fairfax Court House, about 14 miles west of Washington D.C.; they were under the command of Lt. Col. Richard S. Ewell.

EDIT: the release date has been moved to June, 9th
1618. The protestant nobles of Bohemia reject the election of the catholic Ferdinand of Styria as king and rise in open revolt against the Holy Roman Emperor. This seemingly local conflict is the spark which will ignite all of Europe, dooming it to three decades of warfare and sectarian violence: it is the Thirty Years’ War!
