All the Strategy You Can Handle

Longtime readers of this blog will already know of my love affair with the strategy game Europa Universalis II.

EU2 is one of the most perfect games I’ve ever played — deep and absorbing for anyone with an interest in history and strategy. It holds up fantastically even today, years after its original release. And if you haven’t checked it out yet (my God!), an excellent opportunity to do so for peanuts is about to come your way.

On February 21, Paradox is releasing the “Paradox Strategy Six-Pack” — a collection of great strategy games, all in one box for practically nothing. In addition to EU2, you get Victoria, their simulation of the world in the age of colonialism; Hearts of Iron, a flawed but interesting World War 2 grand strategy game; Crown of the North and Two Thrones, two smaller-scale strategy games; and an EU2 expansion that refocuses the game from the perspective of Asia.

Whew! That’s a lot of gaming 🙂

And how much does it cost? You can pre-order from Amazon for $19.99. If you’re into strategy games at all, this is a great way to grab a bunch of great titles cheap. What are you waiting for?

P.S. If you’re wondering “enough about EU2, what has Paradox done for us lately” — check out the reviews for the new Hearts of Iron 2
