Usborne Battlegame book 2 Knights at War
Probably my favourite, this book was illustrated by Gerry Embleton and Angus McBride, among others.
The four games are:
1 The Battle of Arsouf - Richard the Lionheart against Saladin
2 Siege! - rival lords (the Earl d'Assault and Baron de Fender) struggle for control of a castle
3 Border Raiders - knights try to drive back invaders who are burning villges and plundering cattle
4 Tournament - jousting in a grand tournament
I remember playing the Arsouf and Siege games. I am missing the pieces for Arsouf and Border Raiders but the rules list the pieces and miniatures should substitutre well.
