No Peace Without Honor (NPWH) is a two-player game depicting Louis XIV’s earliest European wars, the War of Devolution 1667-68, the Dutch War 1672-78 and the War of the Réunions 1679-1684. This stand alone game uses the No Peace Without Spain System. The focus is on Louis’ carefully planned invasion of the Dutch Republic, which was foreseen as a short, sharp conflict, similar to the War of Devolution. However, the conflict unexpectedly became a pan-European conflagration for which none of the participants were prepared. This game, through the War of the Réunions option, can be linked to Nine Years War and No Peace Without Spain to play out the entire 46-year span of the wars of Louis XIV as a grand campaign game.
This stand alone game uses the No Peace Without Spain System. A new countersheet provides additional leaders, such as the young Prince William of Orange, or the skilled Bourbon veterans Turenne and Condé. The Sun King himself, Louis XIV, can make an appearance. A new set of event cards features incidents such as the Ottoman threat to Austria, colonial wars and the Anglo-Dutch naval war. Players must not only battle each other, but also deal with increasing war weariness among their respective populations which can trigger more political and economic events, and eventually force you to the peace table whether you are ready or not.
