Some time ago I ran across a game, to my recall on Stamford Bridge, but did not bookmark anything about it.

I believe it was produced as an adjunct to some British history related to a university. It seemed that there may be follow on games.

The game looked sweet - nice production qualities but was on the horrid side of expensive.

I have searched again but to no avail.

Does anyone have a reference for me?

Much appreciated. Write it down; don't trust brain...

Jim

There are two new games on the topic listed here on BGG:

Stamford Bridge: End of the Viking Age

Invasion 1066: Stamford Bridge

Where did I put it, Jim?

Bob's response jiggled my memory - not Stamford but rather Stirling Bridge gulp. At least in the same country...

There is also a recent game on Stirling. One other recall: the units - while cardboard, I think acted like what one would find in miniatures stands.

Scotland Rising: Stirling Bridge ?

Stirling 1297 ?

Otherwise, most miniatures rules of the same era / country could cover the battle of Stirling Bridge.

For example,

Thanks, but not these either.

The units were - at least the infantry, on heavy stock but were fairly large rectangles, showing the strength and unit type.

Wallace's War - although not sure the counters are rectangular.

Not Stirling Bridge, but the counters fit the description.

The Flowers of the Forest

Nope and no again. Thanks for the input.

A side benefit is that I am finding other games in this period that are interesting me.

Changing gears here, could it have been something from Philip Sabin? I don't see anything by him on that battle, but his things are academia-related.

Lost Battles has rectangular counters, but it's on a significantly older period.

Er, technically no. Stamford Bridge is in England and Stirling Bridge in Scotland. That means a lot to some people!

You are correct. I was thinking UK (generally). Certainly do not want to be responsible for Scotexit, Irexit or Welexit...whistle

No GG for geopolitical corrections!

Ahhh, the counters look to be what I recall but it would seem that I conflated (confluxed? laugh) game components/system with another period.

Just so this doesn't get out of hand:

I have been giving out some GG to those who have suggested games or game systems. This is NOT a contest so I feel I don't have to hand it out; just a small thank you for those that have taken some time to aid my miserable memory...
