Good day,

Back when I was 8, my mother bought a board game at a yard sale. I never knew the name of the game, or the rules (not included), but I was hoping that by describing it, someone here might know what it is:

- the board was made up of four plastic tiles about 10" x 10". The tile was about 0.5" high and the surface was mostly gray with green blocks (what I suspect were to represent forests).
- Each of the four board tiles had a 15 x 15 hole pattern so that a unit with a peg on the bottom could be put into a single position.
- There were two unit types that I can remember: a mounted knight and a pike carrying foot soldier. Both were plastic
- There were also fortifications (may have been castles) that were two board tiles wide.
- I do not recall how many players there were.

I would suspect the board game was made in the mid 80s.

That is all of the information that I can recall.

Any help would be appreciated.

Mike

hahaha thanks for all the props. I thought I was actually slow not making it under the 10 minute mark.
I first picked up this game about 4 years ago at a garage sale simply because I was shocked to find out 3M once made games. And even though I've since picked up a 2nd copy and still don't have all the pieces I treasure it as its one of the reasons I became active on bgg. Also fills out my shelf nice .

The 3M games are pretty neat and show up semi-regularly at thrift stores. I haven't found Feudal yet myself, but I have several others (Twixt, Mr. President, Executive Decision, Facts in Five, Image and one other whose name is escaping me)
