For fans of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway musical Hamilton, American history, and the ten-dollar bill, this card game does for the American Revolution what Oregon Trail did for Manifest Destiny: teaches players about another time while having a blast.

One part Monopoly, one part War, one part Family Business, Deal or Duel is a game for ages 10 and up that can be enjoyed as a family or among friends.

Featuring a stunning art program, the game comes in a box equipped with three decks of cards, $3,500 in fake colonial bills, and a scroll. Players win either by accruing $1,000 or by being the last man standing, which they accomplish by dueling each other. The main opponent players will be facing, however, is Alexander Hamilton himself, who changes the rules of the game with every turn. Easy to learn and enjoy, Deal or Duel creates a fun space in which players can learn about the American Revolution and historical figures from the Marquis de Lafayette to Betsy Ross, while generally trying to achieve the ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in the sometimes exhilarating, sometimes harsh climate of a new nation.

HOT TOPIC: Hamilton and American history are seeing a surge in popularity. This game will have a broad appeal among history buffs, game-night hosts, and fans of the musical alike.

TRENDING ACTIVITY: Unplugging from the screen has resulted in increased board game playing and puzzle solving, so there is more demand than ever for new games.

CROSSOVER POTENTIAL: Full of facts and easy to grasp, we see this game as having a huge upside in academic channels. While the game focuses heavily on Hamilton, it also contains facts about all the pertinent persons of the revolutionary war, including women and international figures.
