Lincoln is a card-based wargame for two. The scene of the game is one of the most famous armed conflicts in the history of the United States of America - the Civil War (1861-1865). For the duration of the game, players will assume the role of leaders, one of the Union from the north and the other for the Confederation from the south.
Abraham Lincoln was the sixteenth president of the United States, a famous abolitionist who fought against slavery. He was an extremely important figure in the Civil War, which was initiated by the southern states, which, after the formation of the Confederation, tried to leave the United States, among other things to maintain their rights to slavery. This war is also known in America as the Civil War.
The game system is designed to reflect the natural course of this war, while not reducing the chances of victory for either side. However, the balance of the forces of the asymmetric sides (rich industrial north versus weaker agricultural south) is incredibly difficult to achieve. Martin Wallace managed to construct a peculiar system of "destroying" the deck, thanks to which he managed to recreate the dilemmas faced by contemporary leaders.
So where is our card conflict taking place? How do our decisions influence its course? The whole game is played on a board, which is a map of the United States from the Civil War period, which contains the most important conflict locations.
Cards are used to build units - create a physical army on the board, and also allow you to move these units. The fights are very simple and there are no dice rolls here! Only the numbers and our generals count, and they can change the course of any battle.
In addition, there are also highly themed special cards in the deck that allow you to perform various actions.
Would you like to take part in the struggle of the Yankees and Rebels? Do you have the courage to make key decisions? If so, Lincoln is a game made for you!
