This title runs on Ian Brody's Quartermaster General system for card-driven strategy games, where players assume the role of a world power in the conflict and each power has its own deck of cards to use to progress their position. Quartermaster General: 1914 2E recreates the military, economy, and politics of World War I, pitting the Central Powers against the Entente Powers. The second edition refreshes this title with an improved board, artwork, and other components.
The game box comes with a game board, a rulebook, 216 cards, 45 wooden Army pieces, 16 wooden Navy pieces, 2 scoring markers, a game round marker, 2 Reminder tokens, 6 Objective tokens, and 5 player aid sheets. This game is for two to five players, age 13 and up, and plays in 90 minutes. It will retail for $49.90.
Ares Games also released Total War, a new expansion for Quartermaster General 2E board game (see "Ares Games Reveals 'Quartermaster General 2E' Expansion").
