Major expansion for Founding Fathers that enables play through the Civil War, Gilded Age and the First World War. The Civil War and the three amendments that followed have been called the Second Founding. With this expansion kit you no longer need to stop at the Civil War. Instead, continue on to face the tough challenges of the War Between the States and beyond, including:
The Great War
Variable Outcome cards that provide random results when fighting major wars, including the wars of the base game.
A new player action that enables gaining and taking from others votes in Congress.
The Election Table that provides a new mechanism for resolving elections based mostly on the way the previous President conducted affairs.
The possibility of sudden death victory via Regime change.
New Offices such as the Admiral.
Initiative cards that offer Presidents more options.
Offers two new scenarios, one for the Civil War, one for the Gilded Age. Rules also permit continuing the base game so as to play from the administration of Washington to that of Wilson.
Adds 198 cards, including 75 Issues and 65 Statesmen. New Statesmen include:
Ulysses S. Grant
William Tecumseh Sherman
George B. McClellan
