    Description

    The Hundred Years War

    In 1337, based on the strength of his claim to the French throne as a direct descendant of Philip IV
    through his mother, Isabella of France, Edward III of England refused to do more than simple (non-liege)
    homage for Guyenne to the French King Philip VI.
    The resulting war that started shortly afterward between France and England continued, with periodic
    truces, until 1453.
    The Battle of Crécy, fought on Saturday, August 26, 1346 was the first of several significant battles
    during which the longbow triumphed over crossbowmen and armoured knights.

    Object of the Game

    The Battle of Crécy is a game for two to five players in which you and your opponents play French
    knights trying to defeat the Englishmen and to get as much fame and honour as possible while doing so.
    Honour is gained by showing off and dispatching English footmen.
    The game is played in two separate parts: the night before the battle and the battle itself.
    When the battle is done all the player’s fame is counted and the knight whom has gained the most
    honour is the winner - even though he might be dead.
