I played the Lancastrian Beaufort Admiral of England and started with 2 subordinate commanders and my other 3 subordinates were all activated during the game. I managed to eliminate 2 of the Yorkist heirs and after 2 days of play I won the game largely by surviving, not losing many troops and holding onto the 2 towns that I captured. At one point Beaufort was in a dangerous situation near London facing numerous Yorkists but luckily he and his command were called away to Pevensey Castle leaving De Vere to face them alone.

It was a truly enjoyable weekend and the rules developed by Steve Rimmer worked well and were easily picked up by all the players. My thanks to Steve who acted as the hard working umpire and provided the inspiration, organisation and resources for the very enjoyable game.
