Description Edit | History

Liberty: The American Revolution is a block game, built on the same foundation as Columbia's much-acclaimed Hammer of the Scots. The card play and wintering rules are similar. The map has switched from area movement to a hex-based map with the traditional movement and terrain rules from other classic Columbia games like Wizard Kings. Leaders, infantry, cavalry, and fleets are all represented.

From Columbia's web site:

Liberty is a fast-playing game covering the American Revolution from 1775-1783. British, American, and French forces are included and the role of the Indians and Navies is depicted. The unique problems faced by each side become clear in this playable game.

Nominee for the 2003 Charles S. Roberts awards for Best Pre-World War II Boardgame (Charles S. Roberts Awards).

0 Universal Battle Mat for Liberty
(v1.0) When fighting a battle with more than one or two blocks per side, consider relocating the action to this Battle Mat. This is a single mat, "Universal" version of my "Tailored Battle Mats", found also in this library. (Please read the description of the Battle Mat design used for that file). The big difference between the two files is that this file is only a single battle mat with a basic, universal hex. It's uploaded to provide a far simpler option for those players who enjoy the Battle Mat concept but don't want to fuss over which mat to use. This document has two pages.

4 Tailored Battle Mats for Liberty
(v1.0) When it becomes cumbersome to fight a battle on the mapboard, consider relocating the action to one of these tailored Battle Mats. The design provides ample space to lay blocks inside the embattled hex while maintaining proper orientation to entry hexsides. Also, each hexside accommodates a row of three blocks abreast for staging reinforcements. Each mat is designed to fairly represent the geography of the actual hex being represented and automatically maintains proper orientation to the game board. Finally, each mat includes a Combat Round tracker and applicable “Rules Reminders.” This is a 20 page, 4.7MB PDF package containing 18 Battle Mats, Usage Notes, and an Index. NOTE: See the comments section for images of the Battle Mats before you download.
