An Italian Wars Renaissance game pitting Imperialists again an Italian state. The rules used was Lion Rampant, which provides a good 'beer and pretzels' game, although we didn't have any beer or pretzels (whatever 'pretzels' are!). Either way, Lion Rampant always seems to provide a good fun encounter, with the initiative switching from side to side several times in a game.

Ah, I see. I imagine this would help soak up the beer nicely!

A little mustard, delicious!

And, as English writer E. R. Eddison points out, the salt encourages more drinking of beer!

I need to re-read Lion Rampant, with thought to adapting it to my current project.

Doesn't look like you had firearms. Do you play Pikeman's Lament in that case? Another Mersey set for Pike and Shot.
