Larry's new board game about the Middle Ages!

Hey um Larry, that middle ages board game you are creating. Is it something like, I don't know, say, AGE OF RENAISSANCE?! :mrgreen:

If so, I so love that game! I bought it on ebay for a dirty cheap price, brand spanking new. I love that game as much as A&A. I don't know, it's just something about economies and taking over the world that I like. :lol:

Hope not.

For me, Medieval is over with the Renaissance.

Anyways, if you do make a Medieval game Larry I'd like to be involved; I've already contributed to Britannia and several Wars of the Roses games, so this is my specialist area.

Depending when you went to school, the Dark Ages were from 350AD-1066AD, nowadays that has been taught as the Early Middle Ages. True the concept of feudalism had begun, but, the Western & Eastern Roman Empires, still had allot going on for them. The term Dark Ages is more appropriate cause it applies more for Central & Western Europe, but, not the more advance parts of Eastern Europe(Byzantine Empire).

As for the term Middle Ages 1066-1453, with the coming of the Crusades, brought more money into S.&W. Europe, thus dooming feudalism and the Byzantine Empire(the Fourth Crusade pretty much bankrupt the Empire, and, financial poor kingdoms usually do not last long).

So much for the renaissance, as it started in Italian city states, in the 1200s and spread to the rest of medieval Europe.

The best time factor for Larry's new game could be from the 900s to 1200s, as it has the elements of the Dark Ages, Middle Ages, and a bit of the Renaissance in it(just leave the dark fortress guarded by a wizard, an army of the dead and a dragon, awaiting an assault by Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table in fantasy land), thanks, Pellulo

If Larry was to do a Axis and Allies type Middle Ages game, a popular choice would be The Hundred Years War. Those Joan of Arc Historical Game with the many modules(some with a fantasy twist to them), are quite popular now. Also a good source of minis, thanks, Pellulo

My vote would be a Battle of Agincourt, no Joan, just good old Henry V.
