This solitaire game, suitable for group and classroom cooperative game play, tells the story of the French Revolution through its key events and decision points. You must stop the advances of foreign armies and the counter-revolutionary forces within France itself to defend the virtues of Republicanism.

Can you suppress the forces of Monarchy and Despotism to maintain the Republican spirit in France? Can you export the revolution by liberating neighboring states and granting them their liberty? Will you be able to keep order in Paris as it suffers from riot after riot? Enlist today, grab your musket and a banner, and join the Levée en Masse!

Reviews

Aux armes citoyens! by Roger's Reviews (BoardGameGeek)
Levée en Masse does have a certain script to it in that the first and last card of each deck is predetermined, but the order of the remainder of the cards is random, so the game will be different each go round. ... The game also gives you the flexibility to focus on certain aspects as the game ebbs and flows [which] gives this game some legs for me, and the relatively short playing time of around thirty minutes feels just right in terms of effort for reward.

This is my first State of Siege game, but it won't be my last.
Ye Sons of France, Awake to Glory by Jeff McAleer (The Gaming Gang)
If you’re looking for an interesting title to explore the revolution in a short amount of time while having to stay on your toes this is certainly a worthy buy!
