History of the world
EXPLORATION & REVOLUTION
Over four tumultuous centuries, the world opens up, is torn apart at times, and is certainly forever changing. Initially, the map is dominated by the great empires of Spain, Russia under Ivan the Terrible, the Ottoman Turks and the Ming in China. Shake the kaleidoscope and lots more happens! Revolutions in England, France and the newborn USA bring down monarchs and bring forth new leaders.
