Freedom: The Underground Railroad is a card-driven, cooperative game in which players work for the abolitionist movement to help bring an end to slavery in the United States. The players use a combination of cards, which feature figures and events spanning from Early Independence until the Civil War, along with action tokens and the benefits of their role to impact the game.
Freedom: The Underground Railroad – Promo Cards is a set of 18 promo cards containing Abolitionist Cards, Opposition Cards, and Reserve Cards. Each set was introduced as a different stretch goal during the Kickstarter. But since all three goals were met, they were all shipped together in one pack. These were also available as one pack from the BGG Store.
