DescriptionBirth of America is a strategic war simulation covering two important conflicts in the history of the United States - the French and Indian War and the War of Independence.
The game takes place in Colonial America during the 18th century. Territories span the entire eastern portion of America from the Atlantic Ocean west to the Mississippi River, north into New England and Canada, south into the Florida regions.
After choosing which scenario to play, pick from over 100 famous leaders to control on one side of the conflict at hand - British, American, French, or American Indian. Draft your forces, build forts, depots and blockades and then control various troop types to fight over land and sea. Troops are controlled at the regiment level, which can be arranged into detachments. More than 90 different equipment models can be used during the 10 different scenarios offered.
In-game maps cover 700 territories and provinces over a variety of terrains, weather conditions and levels of civilization. The top-down perspective provides the look of a board game. Control is turn-based and game turns correspond to one month of historical time. Once set into motion, scenarios range from a few months to several years in length, historically speaking.
