For 1-2 players, ages 9+, playing time around 90 minutes.
Scotland Rising, which is being released to honor the 700th Year Anniversary of the battle of Bannockburn, is a sharp fight that highlights the tactics of medieval battles on a crowded battlefield: Knights are powerful and hard to bring down; pikemen are best in massed formation; archers have ranged fire but must be protected; and ax men are vicious in a close fight. In the game, players take the command roles of Robert the Bruce and King Edward II to lead their armies toward old-fashioned victory � medieval style � by inflicting damage on their opponent to relieve the siege of Stirling Castle.
Scotland Rising is the first title in Worthington Publishing's �PT-90� game series, a line of wargames that can be played in 90 minutes. The eight-page rulebook has only four pages of rules and four pages of play examples, designer notes, and historical background.
