Dear backers,

Congratulations! You have managed to unlocked another SG - Archenemy mode. Now we can finally say that Anno Domini 1666 is a game for 2-4 Players :)

The next one in the queue is double sided board and two additional scenarios. Size of the board is not a mistake - we'll explain why in one of the future updates.

The next SG will be announced as soon as we unlock double sided board.

To boost progress of campaign we're adding set with additional commoners. Many of you asked about them, so here you are. Please have in mind they are the same miniatures as in base game/faction starter sets.

      Miniatures from this time period and written accounts (see Gabor Agoston "Guns for the Sultan") shows that main equipment of Janissaries were muskets (tufenk). It was mostly matchlock (fitilli tufenk), but some soldiers were using guns with miquelet locks (flintlocks - cakmakli tufenk). For iconography you can check ottoman miniatures from 1657-58 bought by Claes Ralamb - Swedish ambasador in Constantinople:

      As our Janissaries are from elite unit they all have miquelet locks :)

      more gooons is indeed a good thing!
      @ian: i thought janissaries almost exclusively carried muskets and yatagan swords during the seventeenth century. during the late eighteenth and nineteenth century (e.g. the anglo-afghan wars), jezails became more and more popular due to their low cost and long range.
      but as (more or less) envoys of the ottoman empire, they'd surely have access to the top notch muskets of their time.

      Excellent add-ons!

      While not wishing to create an issue or upset anyone shouldn't Janissaries be armed with jezzails during this period which where longer than the standard musket

      @Jan - no
      @Federico - yes. We'll write how it works shortly, but you will be able to play 3-4 players just with base game :)

      Will the base box have additional base rings for the 3rd and 4th player?

      I love this campaign, thanks for the Archenemy mode. Just a question (sorry if already asked): can I play it with the base box or I need some addons for 3-4 players?
