parfumParfum

$49.99

 

Marcel and Marco, the designers of the award winning game “Fresco” now introduce you to the wonderful world of fragrances through their new game “Parfum”.

 

Aromatic scents were first used in the Orient in myriad ways. This expertise in manufacturing precious mixtures eventually reached Europe, with the southern French town of Grasse in Provence becoming the capital of the perfume craft.

 

In “Parfum”, players assume the role of master perfumers. They distill precious essences and create unique perfumes using ingredients like vanilla, lavender, rose, bergamot and violet.

 

But each customer has their own preferences, so even the most charming symphony of fragrances must satisfy the tastes of the wealthy clientele, so that they buy your creations. Choose your Aroma dice skillfully to obtain the right fragrance notes to create the most desired perfume. Watch your customer’s desires to become the most successful perfumer.

 

With “Fresco”, the designer team “MM” successfully engulfed the players in the fantastic world of fresco painting. Now with their new creation “Parfum”, they lead the player into the exotic world of perfume making in the 18th century.

The Spanish Tercios 1536-1704

$ 17.95 SRP

 

A mixed infantry formation made up of about 3,000 men armed with pikes, swords and handguns, the innovative and influential tercio or ‘Spanish square’ was the basic combat unit of the armies of Spain throughout much of the 16th and 17th centuries. Arguably the first permanent tactical formation seen in Europe since the Roman cohort, the tercio was the forerunner of modern formations such as the battalion and regiment. The variety of different weapons fielded in the tercio meant the Spanish infantry could resist opposing cavalry forces while overcoming every kind of enemy infantry deployed against them. Featuring full-colour artwork and photographs of rare items held at the Spanish Army Museum, this study covers the whole period during which the tercios were active, opening with the third Italian war between the forces of France and the Holy Roman Emperor and concluding with the final transformation of the Spanish tercios into regiments in 1704.

Home Before the Leaves Fall (HC)

$ 24.95 SRP

 

The German invasion of France and Belgium in August 1914 came close to defeating the French armies, capturing Paris and ending the First World War before the autumn leaves had fallen. But the German armies failed to score the knock-out blow they had planned. The war would drag on for four years of unprecedented slaughter. There are many accounts of 1914 from the British point of view, and the achievements of the British Expeditionary Force are the stuff of legend. But in reality, there were only four British divisions in the field, while the French and Germans had more than 60 each. The real story of the battle can only be told by an author with the skill to mine the extensive German and French archives. Ian Senior does this with consummate skill, weaving together strategic analysis with diary entries and interview transcripts from the soldiers on the ground to create a remarkable new history. Hardcover; July 2012; 384 pages
