War of the Roses

Sun May 11, 2014 3:58 am

I've bought just about all of the games you've got... and love them all. I believe the game format is perfect for a game about the War of the Roses. With the great graphics and strategic play... I hope one day...

Both War of the Roses and English Civil War would be great. I would suspect with only minor changes, the same map could be used for both.

And how about France and Italian theater for 100 years war, Italian wars and French wars of religion??

The problem about the Wars of the Roses is that it wasn't really a territorial struggle in the way that a majority of AGEOD games are. It was a dynastic one spread over thirty odd years and the key factor was which faction won the battle and which royals/leading nobles survived or were killed, not who held this territory or that town.

I think for the medieval period the Hundred Years War would be an absolutely perfect subject for an AGEOD game and I think the Crusades could also be good, although that might need some thought given current political sensitivities.

Games like war of the roses would indeed have to mean venturing into a new type of game where role playing is as important as wargaming, a bit like paradox did with crusader king in a more arcade manner.
