Description Edit | History

Battlegame Book 2.
The second half of this book has 4 games with full colour A3 size boards, and monocolour pieces to cutout and assemble (most pieces are designed to standup - some fit into others pieces - such as the Knights in Tournament who may be on (in) their horses or on foot).

The four games are:

Arsouf. 2 players. Recreate the famous battle between Richard and Saladin on September 7, 1191. The crusaders must use their powerful knight squadrons, especially the Templars and Hospitallers, to protect their slow infantry and baggage trains. Saladin must skilfully deploy his mamelukes, horse-archers and skirmishers to wear down the crusaders and prevent them reaching Arsouf.

Siege. 2 players. Nineteen attacking knights must take a castle in 40 days. Arrayed against them are not only 10 knights, but boiling oil, Greek fire, and rocks. Luckily the attackers have the know how to build ladders, rams, mines, catapults and towers to help them break in.

Border Raiders. 2 players. Border clashes in 13th century Germany. Karl the Black must loot and plunder the villages of his neighbour Duke Conrad. Clever use of archers and knights to protect the levies laden down with plunder is necessary to win this game.

Tournament. 2-4 players. Three days of jousting where knights can increase their prowess is followed by the grand melee which mixes those unhorsed with those still on horseback. Jousting involves secret choice of target and simultaneous revealing. The grand melee rewards speed for the mounted knights and swarming for the unhorsed knights on a team.

2 Home made pieces for Arsouf (colour version)
After playtesting my home made pieces a few times, it was difficult sometimes for my opponents to differentiate between the Crusaders and Saladin's forces. So I made all of Saladin's forces blue. I also made the Templar cross red. I also made sure all the pieces were the same size. These seemed to work a lot better. I still got cut to pieces before reaching the fold in the book though. All artwork is my own creation.

4 Home made pieces for Arsouf
I long ago cut out and lost the pieces to Arsouf in "Knights at War". I found one Skirmisher piece in a box with some dice, so measured it. I then decided to recreate the pieces myself using Microsoft Word and MSPaint. All artwork is my own creation and not copyrighted and not enormously good either, but they seem to work OK.
