The rulebook survived relatively unscathed, but the scenario book is now an ex-scenario book. This one probably hurts the most because there does not seem to be a download for the German version available.

Sunday kicked off three days of Virgin Queen for me.

In the Sunday heats I played England and the Protestant as I don't get to play them as much. Two second places secured a spot in the semi-final for me.

Monday I went with the Protestants again. I think Spain had a more inexperienced player and that set the tone for the game. All of myself, the Ottomans, and the English capitalized off this. A key moment came for the resolution of Scotland that was broadcast ahead of time. I was +4 on the die roll against England to keep it. Unfortunately I rolled a 2 and the English rolled a 6. He won the tie-break to take away my Scots. This helped swing England to first, the Ottomans to second, and my Prots to third. I was one victory point from making the finals as I had tiebreak over the Ottomans from the heat rounds.

Tuesday I ran a scheduled open gaming of the campaign game. It took awhile to find a 6th player and the game ran a little slower than I hoped. But we did get in 4 rounds. France edged out my England on tie-break at the end. But this was after a stellar Ottoman round 3 in which he almost claimed the win at 25 points. So round 4 had multiple declarations of war against him. I actually took Buda from the Ottomans with Treachery (I was amused).

Although the game focus on the military, political and religious conflicts within Europe during the reigns of Elizabeth I of England and Philip II of Spain we will focus on

Elisabeth I
Queen of England and Ireland

Reign:
17 November 1558 – 24 March 1603
Coronation: 15 January 1559
House: Tudor
Born: 7 September 1533 - Palace of Placentia, Greenwich, England
Died: 24 March 1603 (aged 69) - Richmond Palace, Surrey, England


Elizabeth I was Queen of England and Ireland from 17 November 1558 until her death. Sometimes called The Virgin Queen, Gloriana or Good Queen Bess, the childless Elizabeth was the fifth and last monarch of the Tudor dynasty.

Elizabeth was the daughter of Henry VIII by second wife, Anne Boleyn, who was executed two and a half years after Elizabeth's birth. Anne's marriage to Henry VIII was annulled, and Elizabeth was declared illegitimate. Her half-brother, Edward VI, ruled until his death in 1553, bequeathing the crown to Lady Jane Grey and ignoring the claims of his two half-sisters, Elizabeth and the Roman Catholic Mary, in spite of statute law to the contrary. Edward's will was set aside and Mary became queen, deposing Lady Jane Grey. During Mary's reign, Elizabeth was imprisoned for nearly a year on suspicion of supporting Protestant rebels.

In 1558, Elizabeth succeeded her half-sister to the throne and set out to rule by good counsel. She depended heavily on a group of trusted advisers, led by William Cecil, Baron Burghley. One of her first actions as queen was the establishment of an English Protestant church, of which she became the Supreme Governor. This Elizabethan Religious Settlement was to evolve into the Church of England. It was expected that Elizabeth would marry and produce an heir to continue the Tudor line. She never did, despite numerous courtships. As she grew older, Elizabeth became famous for her virginity. A cult grew around her which was celebrated in the portraits, pageants, and literature of the day.

In religion she was relatively tolerant and avoided systematic persecution. After 1570, when the pope declared her illegitimate and released her subjects from obedience to her, several conspiracies threatened her life, all of which were defeated with the help of her ministers' secret service. Elizabeth was cautious in foreign affairs, manoeuvring between the major powers of France and Spain. She only half-heartedly supported a number of ineffective, poorly resourced military campaigns in the Netherlands, France, and Ireland. By the mid-1580s, England could no longer avoid war with Spain. England's defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 associated Elizabeth with one of the greatest military victories in English history.
