•1812! War on the Great Lakes Frontier is played across maps depicting the Great Lakes and the settlements carved out of the heavily forested wilderness of the old Northwest. Both players engage in a naval arms race to construct new warships from the surrounding forests augmenting their original fleets. Inexperienced US commodores and crews sail against the salty veterans of the Royal Navy and fight the US Navy’s first fleet engagement at the Battle of Lake Erie.
•While the cannons echo across the Lakes, US commanders such as William Henry Harrison and Winfield Scott maneuver their amateur armies against the British commanders such as Isaac Brock, George Prevost, and Henry Proctor and their seasoned forces. Fighting along-side the British are the Native American tribes under Tecumseh who are desperately trying to maintain a hold on their traditional lands.
•Your opponent is not the only enemy. When playing the campaign scenarios, winter blankets the wilderness territories of the Great Lakes frontier. The player who has not prepared will see his naval and land forces decimated.
