GMT Games is shipping Washington’s War. I just received my preordered copy, so the game should be at retailers in about a week.

Washington’s War is Mark Herman’s redesign of his 1994 game We the People. The previous version was published by the original Avalon Hill Game Company. Both are card-driven war games about the American Revolutionary War, and both focus on spreading influence across the colonies as a means to victory. Washington’s War replaces the earlier version’s combat mechanic with die-rolls, and also refines the use of cards to emphasize the strengths and weaknesses of each side involved in the conflict.
