Patria Libre: The Struggle for Mexican Independence is a 1-4 player game that recreates the historic events that occurred in Mexico (New Spain) between 1810–1821 with the Insurgents who sought to separate themselves from Spain and the Royalists who tried to prevent it. The game is very unique in that it uses a fairly unique order selection mechanic using dual sided tokens so you can never quite do what you want to do but must manipulate these tokens to give you the order you need at the moment. The game focuses on area control and gaining victory points through the control of victory point spaces or control of spaces identified on circular cards that appear in the marketplace. Players must recruit troops, enhance those troops and use them to fight over control of the spaces on the beautiful board. A very well designed game that was interesting and fun to play.
