About “Freedom Heroes” by FNF Madrid

In the framework of the FNF bi- annual theme “Reshape Europe”, the FNF Madrid office has decided to create a board game with the aim to make players think and build up strategies on how  Europe and the world can become more resilient and assertive in order to stand up to the enemies of freedom worldwide.

In a world where the values of freedom and democracy are constantly under threat, at FNF Madrid, we developed a board game that not only entertains but educates, empowering players to ponder the question: How can Europe become more resilient and assertive in the face of global challenges? Thus, "Freedom Heroes" was born, a game designed to stimulate critical thinking, strategic planning, and a deeper understanding of the values that underpin a free and open society.

Freedom Heroes is a board game that transcends mere entertainment, offering players a unique opportunity to engage with and internalize the core tenets of liberal values. Designed with meticulous attention to these principles, the game invites participants to explore, strategize, and appreciate the significance of freedom, equality, and individual rights in shaping societies. Through engaging gameplay, players deepen their understanding of liberal ideals.
