In some magazine, I saw images of a game staged by the Perrys in 2012, probably at Partizan. The scenario revolved around the flight of Queen Margaret during the Wars of the Roses. Can anybody point me to a description of the game, or even an outline of the scenario?
I am devising a similar scenario for our private gaming and would be interested in how they did it.
Thanks for your help!

Hello Shandy,
The game was very loosely based on one of Margret's flights to France. The set
up had a harbour at one end of the table with a small friendly force waiting for
her. She is already one turn on the table with the reasonable remnants of her
army in column coming down the road at the opposite end. There is a staggered
crossroads half way down the table length. The Yorkists in two groups attempt a
pincer movement at the crossroads. They appear separately on the side roads at
the edge of the table on the roll of a dice. The objective, as a Lancastrian,
you need to get the queen safely to the harbour. As a Yorkist you need to
capture her. We used Hail Caesar, but with amendments. Hope this helps, Michael.

Hi Michael,

thanks, it's very kind of you to have taken the time for a detailed answer! This certainly helps a lot and it sounds like you had a fun game – I wish I had seen it in the flesh. I myself am going to use the WotR variant of Sharp Practice, so it's gonna be more of a skirmish style game.
Thanks again and all the best.

There are a few pics of the game on my blog – here's a link.

Cheers Simon! And wow, that was at the same show the WSS naval WotR game was? Man, I wish I had seen them both. But now I am going to copy both of them… ;-)
