Swelling the Class B ranks ...

So who can knock the king from his perch now? FTP has been the nearly exclusive domain of one player. Only one thing has changed over the years. After nine years as a Class A event, Mark Herman has seen the light and now offers a teaching demo to make this a Class B event and try to capture some of that same new player magic that vaulted Empire of the Sun into the Century after six years as an alsoran.

For the People
is a two-player Grand Strategic level game of the American Civil War between the United States of America (USA) and the Confederate States of America (CSA). Players represent the major decision makers for each side, not any particular general (historically, Lincoln and Davis). Forces are represented by generic brigade (CSA) or division (USA) sized formations, which can be grouped into army level organizations. Most of the historically important generals are represented by named leader counters (who appear at the point in which they assumed major command historically). Each turn each player draws a specific number of cards. These cards are used to drive the activities in the game. They can be played to activate a force, trigger a historic event, and most other game functions. The map uses a point to point system that covers the areas where all major operations could or did occur. Each turn represents about four months of time.

The format is Single Elimination of four-hour rounds of the Campaign scenario. 2006 FTP Reprint rules available @, 2006 Reprint deck (all cards), all optional rules. Players will choose sides randomly, no bidding.

Medalists (plaque winners) receive GMT merchandise certificates and finalists will get a copy of one of Studiolo Designs.
