The year 1066 is the year of crisis for the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of England. King Harold is attacked by vikings from the north and Normans from the south. Play as all three of these factions as you fight battles around England. The aim of each battle is to completely destroy your enemy's army by killing them all or depleting their morale. Pick and choose which units you want to fight with before the battle begins, and each unit has different attack and defense stats, so deploy your troops wisely. The game is played in two rounds where you select orders for your troops and then watch as they carry out your commands. You can organise your troops into a shield wall to resist all but the strongest attacks or into a "boar's snout" to break even the most determined defenders.
