LIBERTY OPTIONAL RULES
The following optional rules have been suggested by Liberty players.
Gamers may choose to experiment with any or all of them in their games. Feedback
1) French Entry roll
At the end of:
1776: Roll 11 or higher (enter in 1777)
1777: Roll 8 or higher (enter in 1778)
1778: Roll 5 or higher (enter in 1779)
1779: Automatic (enter in 1780)
2) Prisoner Exchange Rule
A player can use a Supply card (2 or 3) to force a Prisoner Exchange (assuming
both players have at least one unit captured). Both players can then choose one
of their own captured pieces and return it to their force pool.
3) British West Indies Forces
British forces in the West Indies can not be moved or used until the French enter
4) Extra Card Draw
Players draw one extra card each year (4 in 1775, and 6 each year thereafter).
Each player then chooses one of those cards and returns it to the deck (not showing
it to his opponent). Players then use the 5 cards in their hand (or the 3 in their
hand in 1775) normally.
5) Indian Home Defense
Whenever a blue block ends a move in an Indian home town, the corresponding
Indian block is immediately returned to its home town (if it is currently on the
map and unengaged) and defends it (at B2).
6) Draw Result
If the game does not end due to the British gaining 30 or more points, or
the British being reduced to less than 12 points, then the players get a draw
if the British hold 25-29 points at the end of 1783.
