Played this game twice, enjoyed it very much. Probably helps if you're a fan of (or at least familiar with) English medieval history.

One phenomenon of the game, absolutely not in the rules but present nonetheless in my experience, is that due to the non-renewable nature of your private host, plus the rule that only the highest-ranking piece of an attacking force remains as garrison, as the game (and therefore history) proceeds military campaigns tend to get fought more and more with mercenaries and archers rather than knights. This is, of course, exactly correct when you compare the campaigns of William the Conqueror and Richard the Lionheart with, say, Edward III or Henry V. Nothing in the rule mandates this arrangement, it's just an elegant corollary of usual gameplay.
