I found my antique copy of Chainmail a few days ago. I think I picked it up around 1980 or so!!

It's not bad, though I wish there was more nuance to the Chainmail rules.

Still, it does a decent job of jousting head to head.

My only real complaint is my young son used to beat me all the time when we used them.

What about Steel and Steads? (Gods eye games)

I keep waiting for Skull and Crown to publish or post the Breaking Lances rules. He had mentioned a Kickstarter a couple times for a whole package of figures and rules. But that seems to be on hold.

This is one of those surveys where a vast majority of the responses were not in favour of any of the listed options. Only 9 people voted for the top ranking answer and the equal 3rd choices only had 2 respondents each.

Which raises the question, are there other good jousting rules out there?

It's probably not complex enough for a good stand alone game. Really it's a sideshow for a role-playing campaign.
