This is a tough one, but I hope some of you hardcore gamers might be able to help me here.

I am looking for a game I played about 15 years ago, around the time my group got games like Junta, Kremlin and Kings and Things. I vaguely remember the setting being middle ages and the game being about warring or at least competing nobles or noble families. I also remember a lot of dice rolling being rolled, and I can remember one specific event: you could attend a person's funeral if that person died, and if you rolled very badly, you fell into the open grave, causing you much shame.

And I think I remember the box having been red

Not very much or even coherent information, but I hope someone can help my anyways.

Thanks in advance!

That sounds like Down With the King (aka Krone von Alba).

What a great game.

Just a guess: "K├Ânig von Alba" (Down with the King)

It's been a VERY long time since I played this game and I cannot remember the funerals...

You may not have played with the funeral table -- it's an optional rule.

Possible outcomes included:
- Made improper advances to relative of deceased
- Laughed at corpse
- Improper attire
- Fell into grave
- Attended wrong funeral
...
- Promised Vengeance

It's a very colorful game.

Thank's a bunch, you guys are really great!

I vaguely remembered something about "Albion", but I was a tad bit off target there.

Now I'll just have to check out whether the game was really as good as I remember...

It was put out by Avalon Hill. I have an unpunched copy for sale, if you're interested.
