Rencounter is intended to provide a playable game for skirmish actions using up to about ten units on a side, with four to ten figures in each unit. It should give you games where derring do and turns of fate loom large, where the confusion, mischance, and surprise of such actions are represented in an entertaining fashion.

The word "Rencounter" with which the game is named comes from the French word rencontre and is an obsolete form of the English word encounter, with the specific meaning of a duel or skirmish.
