Condition: Like new - despite its age, it looks pristine and has never been punched, apart from where counters fell out from their places over time, but they are all there.

Attending: I'm at the Expo Friday to Sunday so could arrange a pick-up any day.

This is an old "favorite" from 2000, back when the Ragnar Bros produced their games with tea towel printed maps. They're charming, in their own way. I remember this one having a lot of history, as well as a small set of rules that were non-intuitive. Yep, when we played we constantly had to read the simple rules out loud to discuss what they meant. Other players think we changed our interpretation halfway through (though I didn't think so). I still really enjoy this game, warts & all. One of these years I'll finally finish my component upgrade (not the tea towel map, which I'm keeping--I'm replacing the cardboard bits with wood). I hope to get in a repeat play soon.

Released in 2000.

The last English King (as opposed to King of England) died in 1066. This game is about what happened next. The men who occupied the throne for the next 400 years were a particularly unpleasant bunch, whose main thought was of personal aggrandisement. Having deprived the English of the right of self-government, the more energetic of them set about trying to do a similar job on their neighbours. In Kings & Castles the players take the part of these men as they pursue their ambitions at home and abroad. The treatment is broad-brush and fairly abstract: there is a map and the counters carry pictures of castles and soldiers, but you don't have to start worrying about dice and combat results; this is not a wargame.

Players take turns to conquer as many regions as possible with their own and opponents forces - an intriguing mechanic - then decide whether to tax the hard working peasants or not. Plenty of decision making and room for tactics with a different player/king sequence every time you play.

Comment: Why did I get this? An obscure little title for certain.

Outlook: Not so good. I should really give it a try but for whatever reason my motivation is low.

SOLD - 7/12/15

An overlooked Ragnar Brothers game of choosing the right time to try and score and building the right units at the right time to claim the points. Lovely cloth map as well.

This is a tea towel game from the Ragnar Brothers. It features deterministic battles, but random draws to build your roster of available forces. In some ways it reminds me of Britannia.

You may like this if you enjoy light wargames. It can take a while to play, but a shorter "half game" is an option.

This is from the Ragnar Brothers, who also did games such as History of the World, Fire & Axe, Angola, etc. It bears a vague resemblance to History of the World, except here instead of taking the roles of various empires, players take the roles of the kings of England, trying to get points by fighting the neighbors. Unlike some of their other games, it has not been reprinted.

The game has been punched and played, but is complete and in very good shape. Everything is in English.
