Revolution: The Dutch Revolt 1568-1648


Finally had 5 players on Friday night game night. Lately we have been blessed with 6 or 7 players every game night, which is good but has prevented us from playing Revolution. RtDR is a 5 player game, you see.

Revolution: The Dutch Revolt 1568-1648 is a game by Frank Tresham, the creator of Civilization and the 18xx series of games. RtDR is much more wargamey than Civ, and not destined to achieve the status of either 1829 nor Civilization, but I would say that he hit another one out of the park with RtDR.

The rules to Revolution: The Dutch Revolt 1568-1648 are tough to get your head around. I read the rules several times, and although I understood them it was very difficult to envision how the game would play out. It is not a difficult game, it is an advanced game and I believe it is a game that one must play before one can truly grasp it.

Can't wait to play again.
