I remember borrowing a game off a former colleague with a view to playing it later. I wanted to run through the rules and try it out a bit so I could learn the basics. We never did get round to playing it though. I've been thinking about it recently and thought I might try to pick it up on ebay or something, but I can't remember what it was called and my memory of it is only sketchy. Does any of this sound familiar to any of you?

- Historical board game, based on dark ages/middle ages Europe, spanning several centuries.
- The Schism between Rome and Constantinople comes into play somehow.
- I think raids by Mongols or Huns or maybe Ottoman Turks come into it after certain dates.
- "Nations" sharing related languages are more likely to ally with each other.

I've tried to look it up in the BGG website without success, though I've come across one or two which seem similar. Any ideas from anyone would be much appreciated.

Cheers.

Empires of the Middle Ages
It is almost certainly Empires of the Middle Ages:

The tipoff is the bit about languages - I doubt any other game (on the same theme) has had this mechanism.

That's the one.
Excellent, tool. That's a great help. Funny thing is I actually browsed that one in my initial search of this site, but it didn't look too familiar. Only when I had a closer look (your mention of the language thing made me look closer) did I find that it was indeed the one.

Thanks,

Jonah.
