Rome invades! Battle of the Medway, 43AD
Event Scale: 15mm
Rules Used: TRIUMPH! fast play ancient and medieval battles
Maximum Players: 8
Duration: 4 hours
Description: Caligula's corpse had only been a few years dead when Rome decided it was time to expand its empire, and Britain was a nice digestible meal for that purpose. The mighty Catuvellauni under Tugodumnus and Caratacus collected all the allies they could muster and met the might of Rome at the river Medway; a force of four legions and as many auxiliaries fought them for two days there, with rulership of Britain hanging in the balance. On the side of Rome, can you win immortal glory for yourself and conquer the Catuvellauni, overawing the petty kingdoms of Britain to impose your rule? Or on the side of Britain, can you defy and repulse these foreign invaders and show them that woad and fury beats training and good armor?

Claudian Invasion of Britain, 43-54 AD (Campaign Theme)
Sponsor: Washington Grand Company (www.wgc.com)
Event Scale: 15mm
Rules Used: TRIUMPH! Fast play ancient and medieval battles
Maximum Players: 12
Description: Command an army using the TRIUMPH! Fast play ancient during the Claudian Invasion of Britain.
Ancient Britain is in turmoil. The Catuvellauni have displaced the Trinovantes as the most powerful kingdom in the south-east, and are pressing hard against the Atrebates. But the Atrebates have a powerful ally, just across the English Channel Rome itself. Insane Caligula had only been assassinated a few years earlier, and mighty Rome was looking for a bit of external activity to distract itself from internal issues. What better than expanding the borders a bit? The Atrebates might be inviting the Lion to dinner.
Armies will be provided, and included Romans, Caledonians, Scots-Irish, and a whole mess of British. TRIUMPH! rules are easy to learn; rules will be taught as needed. Young gamers are welcome, but anyone under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
