Save the Standard. A Tafl inspired game, with equal forces and the addition of a Cavalry piece. (15x7, Cells: 101) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The non-entry of infantry to hills and havens is taken from the rules of Tafl. The cavalry were designed to be more mobile and so were not restricted in the same way. By way of compensation (game balance?) infantry are the only pieces allowed to use the bridges.
