Has anybody played this? Is it any good and is there a entry on the geek, I couldn't find any?
I might try and make a big campaign game out of this.

It was mostly regular D&D with a battle system. The battle system was based on a battle map, and the units were cards that had attributes to them. You placed them in troop formations, rolled some dice, etc. It had elements of a board game, which might make it considered as such, but mostly was a tool for role playing the setting. But since it came out right before D20, it was kind of lost in the wayside.

I did't know that there was an AD&D Birthright Campaign boardgame. I played the RPG. It is one of the most complex games ever. I tried to learn it for weeks. Then, a PC game set in the Birthright world came out, complete with all of the actual RPG rules, and I learned it practically overnight. It was fantastically deep and detailed, but it was a monster trying to get through a campaign.

Sorry, this doesn't help. I would be very interested to see how a boardgame in the Birthright world all came together.

The boardgame, I think it's called Legacy of Kings, or something like that, was one of those products that fell by the wayside after TSR got bought over by WOTC. It was available as an internet download at the WOTC website (not sure if it's still there). I downloaded it a few years ago when I was still RPGing. It's a straightforward fantasy wargame where you take one of the realms and try to grow your power, usually using your military strength. There's a GM in the game and he controls the awnshegh realms and the NPC realms. I never got round to playing it in the end so I can't say how well it plays. But as a boardgame, given the more limited roleplaying sphere, my guess is that the game can be unbalanced for some players, like Tuarhieval.

I do own the basic set and a couple of "Realm" books. I would be interessted to hear from someone who played the boardgame and some input on how to get a big campaign game going.
I will put the game into the Geek-Database, if I can get any comment on how it plays.
Regards
Frank
