Description

Freedom: The Underground Railroad is a challenging cooperative game pitting the players against the institution of slavery during the early 1800's thru the Civil War.

Players work together for the Abolitionist cause, raising funds and helping slaves as they move from the Southern States to freedom in Canada. But every move risks alerting the slave catchers who roam the board trying to return the runaway slaves back to the plantations.

Freedom is an engaging game about a pivotal time in American history. Players become familiar with the important historical figures, political agendas, and crucial events that unfolded to change American history and begin to bring freedom to an enslaved people.

  • Teamwork - Players strategize together to achieve their objectives and win against the game.
  • Fun - Easy rules with continual involvement by all players.
  • Educational - Players take on the roles of important historical Abolitionist characters and learn about this important chapter of American history between 1800 and 1865. Freedom Teacher's Manual available separately.
