I think these are players you have not faced before in this campaign.

Note the scenario for each game is at the side. I will publish the scenarios later this week.

Please organise games as you are free, in any order as you can arrange it.

Boast are allowed (encouraged) if you wish to boost your Glory.

If you are promoted at any point then please roll for for the result at the end of the game when Glory was gained - ask your opponent to witness, and record as part of the results sheet.

Many thanks.

Here are the Scenarios, please check them for me and ask any clarifications.

For the Games

Scenario 1 = Escort
Scenario 2 = Collecting Taxes
Scenario 3 = Bring Home the Bacon
Scenario 4 = Bash the Bishop

In all case adjust scenery based on availability.

NOTE - Updated version of Scenario 2.

Where tokens are required (Collecting Taxes and Bring Home the Bacon) coins work well - I suggest 2p coins for size and visibility.

Any figure will do for the Bishop! I have a few monks etc which can be used, let me know if you need something any week.

Andy Mac and Grahame - I am around on 25/7 and most weeks in August. Let me know when you are free, and we can book a table with Colin.

Andy Mellor

In scenarios 2 and 4 can mounted units be used to capture the objectives or just foot troops? Foot only, seems better suited for the scenario? Could make it only foot retinue troops, ie those that the officers can influence / trust?

Grahame

Carl - I can do the 25th.

Given the limited availability of mounted units, this will shift the scenarios to drawn games, so if you want to improve your score, careful use of Boasts is required!

Like all games, take the easy option for a quick draw if you like!

But I do note the lack of clarity in scenario 2 which I will revise. As mounted troops are not generally allowed in buildings - they cannot pick up the tokens deploy in them.

I have revised the scenario and updeted the post.

Also remember - for all Retinues the Leader is restricted to a Foot Unit.

Huge apologies I am really struggling getting to the club on Monday's at the moment due to work and family commitments requiring travel outside the country.
I need to play Andy Mellor and Grahame (apologies to both) so accept that I will suffer a forfeit if I do not propose a date.

You have early September too, plus I am sure Grahame (and possible Andy) will play on another day too! Don't want you to miss your fix!
