The Saxon Shore is Burning

£15

A popular game of the Society of Ancients, the artwork has been entirely redone in full colour and the size of the mapboard and counters doubled in size in this new deluxe edition.

 

Here is an extract from the rulebook:

This is a two-player simulation of the Barbarian Conspiracy of 367 A.D. Against Roman Britain.  In that year the Scotti of Ireland, Atacotti of Western Scotland, Picti of Eastern Scotland and the Saxoni of Upper Germany/Lower Denmark joined forces to take advantage of the withdrawal of the province's three legions to the continent in one of the interminable Imperial Succession disputes.  Britain was rish and prosperous but under-defended, so the Barbarians were able to loot and pillage up and down the country, running riot and killing the Count of the Saxon Shore.  The Romans were eventually able to restore order and by 369 A.D. the province was secure again, though permanently weakened.

The game consists of a map, tables, 400 counters (some spares and extras are also included) and these rules.  You will also need a six-sided die.
