And would you play it again?

Was first introduced to it at a convention in Dallas – intrigued by the needle point hoops that were used for magic – enjoyed the blend of fantasy and historical

Sure I would play it again

I still have my original set from the late 70s. I would play it again, but only for smaller skirmishes. I think the Jousting and Single combat rules worked well, too!

OK, I double-checked the date – I bought it in 1980 or 1981. Now I gotta go find it in my rules section…

Never heard of it.

Have I played it? It was my first ever minis game as a kid and I still love it! The foundational 1-15 dice set up, I believe, offers a lot of neat possibilities and innovation for the time. I've had a fantasy of re-working the attack and casualty system to incorporate some of the good stuff from Battlesystem/Battlesystem Skirmishes…it could be even better.

For those interested, the rules are now owned by these guys and you can purchase a PDF copy directly through them…

The d15 was innovative. Actually d6 + d10 (where 0 is a zero).

I also like the morale rules.

We played it during the 1980s as our ruleset for fantasy miniatures. I had lost my copy long ago, but found the reprint edition a few years ago. I think it is not bad at all, and holds up fairly well for being from its era. Great nostalgia.

Yes I have and it had a wonderful campaign system.

Nope, but I believe I remember seeing it in the local game shop.

I bought it when it came out, still have my original set in the box. Love it and hope to use it again with my own background/setting.
