Hero of Weehawken
, from designer Robert Leonhard
, is a solitaire game where you are President Thomas Jefferson at a dangerous moment in the history of the young American Republic. Your former Vice President, Aaron Burr, is disgraced in your eyes after killing Alexander Hamilton in a duel in Weehawken, New Jersey, and is now somewhere out West. Rumors abound that he is threatening the nation with conspiratorial plans for some sort of ill-advised military adventure that could bring America to war with Spain or worse! Your suspicions are that Burr might even commit an act of treason against the nation by breaking off the Western States to form his own empire or stage a coup d'etat at your very doorstep!
To forestall this disaster, you must first determine Burr's real intentions, and then find and arrest him before he executes his plan. Along the way, you must gather sufficient evidence to convict Burr at trial. If your agents arrest him too soon, you will not have gathered enough evidence or determined what to charge him with. If you wait too long, however, you may be too late to stop his infamous expedition.
Do you have what it takes to gather the right information in time? With the destiny of The Republic and your legacy in history at stake, issue your own Presidential Proclamation and arrest Aaron Burr now!
