The King is Dead, Long Live the King ...

It didn't take long for James Pei to reclaim his throne. You might say that he just let Riku keep it warm for him. So who can knock the king from his perch now?

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 six-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.
