i was reading a bit yesterday about the spanish-american war and the philippine revolution at that time.

then i remembered seeing a COIN series game playtested at WBC from 2(? - maybe 3) years ago that i believe was from this period. i even mentioned it somewhere on BGG back then.

so... is this still a work in progress, does anyone know?

Indeed - this is a worthy topic for COIN. The Philippine insurgency was the first such conflict the US faced in the 20th century, and it was taking place the same time as the Boer War, which itself is another excellent subject for the COIN series!

Unless I'm entirely mistaken what you saw was Iron Butterfly, but that's the Marcos era. A year ago it was still a work in progress but not ready for P500; since then I haven't heard anything.

The Iron a Butterfly is still a work, though (as Oerjan notes) progress is uncertain.

Not COIN Series, but definitely counterinsurgency, there is this on the way from my friend John Poniske: Amigos and Insurrectos: The Philippine Insurrection 1899-1902.

I wonder if the Phillipine Insurrection would make a good subject for a two player COIN in the vein of Colonial Twilight: The French-Algerian War, 1954-62.

Seeing that BongBong Marcos almost get elected this week makes me wish that Iron Butterfly was ready to come out. I had read a bit about the Marcos Regime and People Power years ago but started reading more after the first time I saw mention of Iron Butterfly in a COIN discussion.

Looks like this is happening! I haven't seen much info yet, besides that this is the Marcos era and it features 3 factions (Govt, Reformers, & Insurgents).

People Power: Insurgency in the Philippines, 1983-1986
