Entente! A Political Waltz in 19/14 Time

This game is over! Thank you to everyone that came and played! Turnout was over fifty people!

Join 30-80 other players as members of six Great Powers and decide the fate of Europe in this megagame of diplomacy and intrigue! Players take on the role of political, military, financial, industrial, or other prominent factions in the countries leading up to World War I.

The ‘Great Game’ is afoot and allegiances WILL shift. Can you deftly maneuver your nation to the top of political and economic heap? Can you trust your allies to truly be there for you when the bullets start to fly? How much are you willing to sacrifice to ensure victory?

Entente! aims to be fun first, and educational second. Previous knowledge of the history and the time period is not required or encouraged.

The Yelling For History Club is partnering with Minnesota Megagames to put on this high-player count megagame!

Check-in starts at 11:30am. Light refreshments will be provided.

RSVP and choose your Great Power! (not required, but highly recommended)
