Land and Freedom
Land and Freedom: The Spanish Revolution and Civil War is a 1-3 player war game. Created by Alex Knight, this game is set during 1936-39. Published exclusively by Blue Panther LLC.
1936: Right-wing Army Generals have rebelled against the Spanish Republic, aided by Hitler's Germany and Mussolini's Italy! To save Spain, three factions - Anarchists, Communists, and Moderates - must put aside their differences and forge an anti-fascist alliance. But can you trust your allies when your agendas are directly opposed?
Land and Freedom: The Spanish Revolution and Civil War is a card-driven tug-of-war game in which players are immersed in the dilemma of balancing this fragile alliance against their own political and revolutionary ideals. You must repel the Fascist attack on the 4 Fronts, while gaining the Initiative through tableau-building, deck management, and powerful Medallions.
If the war is won, the player with the most Glory will win the game and determine the future of Spain. If the war against the Fascists is lost... 40 years of dictatorship await, with death, imprisonment, or exile are the only choices remaining.
