I saw the preview for Kingdom of Heaven last night and was awestruck. I'm usually underwhelmed by recent epics but this one had me with the first frame. A lot of the scenes looked similar to the seige of minis tirith from RoTK but so what.

Anyway, I was trying to sort through the medieval list of games, particularly ones inspired by the Crusades. I got a headache. Maybe you guys could help me out. Are there any good games, preferably recent (last five years to now) and available that are based on the 12th century or similar time period and theme? Game machanism doesn't matter.

Pre-order indeed
Just checked out CG's site. I love the preorder discount. Looks like Crusader Rex just jumped to the top of my buy list.

Age
As I am an true believer of the Church of the Age, I will spread the word about Age of Renaissance everywhere I can!
Age of Renaissance crosses the time span of the Crusades in the first epoch of the game, with a specific card: "The Crusades", a very powerful card, especially in the first or second turn of the game!
Hence, join us in the Church of the Age, and spread The Word!!! Let this game be played!!!
