Description: 

Revolution is a game that simulates, in very broad terms, the independence movement in the Spanish Netherlands during the 16th and 17th centuries. During these events, which are often known as the Eighty Years´ War, the northern provinces became independent and established the present day Netherlands. In the south the revolt was less successful and Belgium did not emerge as an independent state until after the Napoleonic era.

Revolution depicts a power struggle in which each player represents one of the principal factions involved, the Catholics, Habsburgs, Nobility, Burghers and Reformers. Some factions tend to have similar outlooks but they are not allies - each has its own motives and objectives.
