Product Info

“For Liberty !” is a turn based strategy game covering the American Revolutionary War from 1775 - 1783 and the Hungarian Rakoczi Independence War - the eastern theater of the War of Spanish Succession from 1703 to 1711.


You can command as many or as few of your forces as you want.  Commands for troops range include attack, recon, retreat, train, rest, pillage, siege enemy forts, fortify important locations. You are responsible for paying and supplying your troops as well.  Political decisions and foreign aid are simulated by an influence system that you can use to change the strategic situation. Use your influence to recruit temporary militia, insurgent regiments, or Indian (Native American) warriors that can augment your force.  The fleet can be used to transport your troops to hard to reach locations where you can surprise the enemy. You can support your operations with the cannons of your fleets. There are 16 unit types of 5 nations included, each in authentic uniforms. All units in the game are large, animated figures. Each turn covers one week of real time.

For Liberty ! will make you truly understand how long and hard warfare was in the 18th century.

If you are a hardcore grognard, then I have a hunch you'll want this game. If, like me, you count yourself as more of a Joe-Average turn-based strategy game player, then chances are still very high you'll enjoy it; I sure did.

The Wargamer
Whether you are an 18th century history buff, American revolutionary, Hungarian noble, or just interested in good “old-school” hex-based 2D wargaming, For Liberty! is worth a look.
