Trivia

Board game

Europa Universalis is actually the conversion of a little-known board game of the same name, published in 1993 by French company Azure Wish Edition. One group of players gave a very good impression on what kind of game Europa Universalis is when they wrote: »The game board covers a full size dining table, and we expect to use about one year to finish the way we are playing.«

Import

Compuexpert.com imported the BeNeLux (Belgium/Netherlands/Luxembourg) version to the US and was able to offer this game for just $10, significantly below the going price for the US/Canadian version.

Inaccuracies

What's the deal with the US box cover?

1. Why is their a 13-star American flag featured in the cover art? For a game focused on European politics - one that ends in 1792 - this hardly seems appropriate. The flag of Spain ought to take its place - not having Spain's flag is quite an omission.

2. Why is the St. George's cross of England portrayed as a Scandinavian cross?

3. Who is Nappleon?

Polish version

In the Polish version of the game there is one bonus scenario - it's about the Swedish invasion in Poland in the 17th century.
