Publisher Description:

Freedom - The Underground Railroad is an engaging cooperative game for one to four players about a pivotal time in American history. Players assume the roles of important historical Abolitionist characters attempting to help slaves move from Southern States to freedom in Canada while avoiding the slave catchers dedicated to taking away their freedom during the early 1800'€™s thru the Civil War.

Immerse yourself in history! As players, you'll become abolitionists and work together to rescue slaves, guiding them from the southern US plantations to freedom in Canada. Step into the tumultuous years prior to and ending with the Civil War (1810-1865) and learn the laws, societal issues and other key factors that led to the final abolition of slavery. Players must also raise funds, work together, and deal with challenges (such as slave hunters) to spread the abolitionist cause. The game melds several components together: in-depth strategy, role-playing, cooperative play, history education and additional companion products to enhance play. The rules are simple, but play can be in-depth - this is one of those set-up-and-play-for-awhile games. Game components are well made, durable and include a large, map-covered game board (approx 38" x 19"); abolitionists cards that influence game play; setup cards that provide game variations; strategic play cards; 96 slave representative pieces; 6 character cards; 2 slave hunter dice; 4 counter sheets with conductor tokens; fund raising tokens/coins, and a detailed instructional booklet which includes an in-depth historical overview. The included cards provide information explaining the importance of significant figures, events, or concepts and could even form an abolition movement timeline of sorts. Winner of multiple awards, 1-4 players, 1-2 hours play.

An available Teacher's Manual includes five lessons with extension activities and additional resources to incorporate the game in your classroom - think unit study! The guide provides additional primary source material, lessons on the Underground Railroad, and information on the effect of laws during this period. Appendices include Common Core correlations and reproducible student sheets.

It is a gift bought for me by my stepfather. This was one of the games I requested for my birthday. Since he is reading a book related to this subject, entitled The President and the Freedom Fighter by Brian Kilmeade, he chose this game for me.

I saw a fabulous review by Tom Vassel on this game. It makes spending the money easier knowing that it comes highly recommended by him. It is also cheaper at Rainbow Resource than anywhere else. This would be must-have for every family who schools at home - history, geography, and strategy.

Rare combo of educational and actually fun. This game handles a very delicate topic in our history and does it in an amazing way.

We own the Revolution Academy Game, and it has been a favorite with our teens. They have been interested in playing the game of Freedom, and we will give it a try!

I’ve been wanting to play this for quite some time now. I’ve seen some high reviews of this game. It is supposed to be an excellent solo play game as well.
