Historic Gaming #7 Hero of Weehawken 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 Proclaimation and arrest Aaron Burr now!

What They're Saying:
- "..a wonderful, tense game of risk management and action in a historical setting. ...Weehawken provides a fantastic and replayable experience. I’ve gone from the lows of New Orleans being taken over, to the happy ending of letting Burr go once I find out he is just settling some land, to a conviction for trying to overthrow my government. I can enthusiastically recommend Weehawken for any history buff who has opportunities to game by his or herself." - GeekInsight (Board Game Geek)
- "If you like abstract games and deduction games, I would highly recommend Hero of Weehawken, as its a well designed, interesting game." - Mark Rivera (Boardgames In Blighty)
