Covering the French Revolution from the meeting of the Estates-General in 1789 to the Directory and General Napoleon Bonaparte's coup d'etat in 1799, Liberte allows players to shape the political landscape of revolutionary France. In Liberte, players compete in provincial elections to gain votes in the government and opposition which, in turn, award victory points. The three factions competing for the new government are the Moderates (blue), the Royalists (white), and the Radicals (red). The player with the largest stack in a province controls that vote. Successfully leading the army in battle and winning the election in key provinces will also score victory points. However, two sudden-death victory conditions can immediately end the game making victory points worthless. The Radicals can gain a landslide in the election or the Royalists can take back the country by controlling battleground provinces. Everyone must be watchful, for the fervor can quickly change France's future!
