The 2012 re-release of Wallenstein tweaks the 2002 title from designer Dirk Henn and publisher Queen Games, while including two new expansions. The setting and game play of the two games are mostly the same.
In 1625, the Thirty Years' War is underway, and military leaders like Albrecht von Wallenstein and Gottfried Heinrich Graf zu Pappenheim are roaming the country, fighting for land, and trying to establish the best of everything for themselves.
The game lasts two "years," with players taking actions in the spring, summer, and fall, then possibly suffering from grain shortage and revolts in the winter before scoring points for the year. After two years, the player with the most points – with points being scored for land and buildings under one's control – wins!
