Players assume the roles of important historical Abolitionist characters attempting to help slaves move from Southern States to freedom in Canada, while avoiding the slave catchers dedicated to taking away their freedom during the early 1800's through the Civil War.
During the game, players need to work together in an effort to achieve two victory conditions. First, the players need to raise the strength of the Abolitionist movement through the acquisition of Support Tokens. Next, the players also need to help Slaves escape from the plantations in the south, moving them north to freedom in Canada while avoiding the Slave Catchers that are roaming the board. If the players are able to achieve both conditions before the end of the game, they win. Of course this is not going to be easy, but through careful planning and strategy, the group can recreate history, helping to bring down the institution of slavery.
