Physical description

Medieval-themed strategy board game. Two opposing teams of warriors consisting of a king, four knights and seven archers, battle on a board printed with squares containing arrows indicating possible moves. The game pieces are of injection-moulded polystyrene, one team is red-brown, the other the colour of ivory. Around the edge of the board are scenes of knights on chargers, and coats of arms. The box is also of printed card, with an image of the game set up to play on the lid, and on the underside of the base are further instructions. A card packing insert inside the box is also printed with instructions.
