Every time I go to one of those I really love the feel and the atmosphere. I was hoping to play a game that feels similar to what I feel when I go to them. Any thoughts? (not interested in a paper and pencil roleplaying game).

The art in the Key-series games might appeal to you. I don't know how much cider making or cabbage harvesting you actually do at a Ren-faire, but it's probably what people around that time had to do!

Agricola is all about not starving during medieval times. Using all sorts of tools from that time period on your farm.

Antiquity Has nice, subdued artwork that looks really nice, and is supposed to evoke a medieval feel.

I was going to recommend that, but it's pretty tongue-in-cheek. Can you provide a little more detail on what kind of feel you are looking for? Any games that come close?

The chivalry, the feasting, the look, the dress, the tournament, the stalls selling fanciful delights, the random medieval events, the weapons, the hardy huzzahs and well wishing, to name a few. I think the one game that comes close, oddly enough, is the red dragon inn series, but I would want something more immersive. Does this help?

I haven't located a copy yet, but I am very intrigued by The Road to Canterbury.

PS - I've been involved in re-enactment for many years through the SCA, it's a hoot!
