America 1861: Great issues are at stake ... but you don't care !

As a British Arms manufacturer and profiteer, your aim is to make as much money as possible by supplying the troops to fight the war with and by speculating in the bonds issued by the Confederacy and the Union to finance their war effort.

Profiteers is a strategic speculation game. Players seek to accumulate gold and bonds (the value of which varies according to the progress of each side in the war). The game lasts between three and seven turns, players first make their investment and production decisions, and then contribute arms to influence the outcome of the great battles of the US Civil War. The battles are simply resolved and allow for bluff and negotiation, but do not attempt to replicate the tactics of the conflict. Those looking for a simulation of "Pickett's Charge" at Gettysburg should not buy this game.

The game is fast paced and highly interactive as the ability to anticipate or influence other players' strategies is crucial to victory.
