Description

REVOLUTION: The Dutch Revolution simulates the Eighty Years' War between Spain and the Netherlands. This epic struggle lasted from 1568 until 1648 and eventually brought independence to Holland and the northern provinces. In the south, the revolt was less successful and Belgium did not emerge as an independent state until after the Napoleonic era. During the initial stages of the struggle, William of Orange became the symbol of freedom. His main adversary was the Spanish King Philip II, who sent in the Duke of Alba with his formidable conquistadores to stop the rebellion. REVOLUTION depicts a power struggle with many facets. Each player represents one of the principal factions involved: Catholics, Habsburgs, Nobility, Burghers and Reformers.
