The end of the Cold War has brought Europe into an era of development. Central and Eastern Europe has shrugged off the yoke of dictatorial rule and she wanted to consolidate the regained democracy. The countries of this region saw European integration as a guarantee that they would not find their way back to the Russian sphere of influence. The European Union and NATO ensured security, and EU membership was to be the foundation of economic success. Russia - a shadow of the former Soviet Union's power - could do nothing to stem the rise of European influence.
And then everything changed.
Crude oil prices soared, helping the Russian economy. Vladimir Putin came to power, who - despite political turmoil - invariably enjoys great popularity among the public. In 2008, a war broke out between Russia and Georgia, which openly aspired to NATO. The revival of Russian power has begun, an example of which was the annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the intervention in eastern Ukraine.
In Europe Divided, you will lead one of two powers: Western Europe (controlling both NATO and the European Union) or Russia. The players' political and military influence will clash in the fight for control over Central and Eastern Europe and the Caucasus. Europe is powerful and rich, but also bureaucratic and slow to act. Russia lacks Europe's potential, but is able to react quickly.
Players earn points by achieving political domination in disputed regions of Central, Eastern Europe and the Caucasus. They can also earn points by winning historical events to their advantage. The gameplay, based on fast card driven mechanics, is rich in historical references and highlights the potential centers of contemporary crises. Players use country cards to gain political and military influence, increase financial resources, and ensure the presence of their troops. The elegant deck management mechanism weakens the capacity of the player's deck as his influence increases, creating a dilemma between the desire to develop and the fear of overstretching his influence.
Will the "Velvet Revolution" split Czechoslovakia? How will the war in Bosnia end? The players will decide the course of the story at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries.
