Blood & Roses


Battles in the Wars of the Roses
England, 1455 - 1487

Fast playing . . . easily understandable rules . . . unusual battles . . . lots of action . . . lots of color . . . great leaders . . . lots of Fun. GMT's series on Warfare in the Middle Ages, Men of Iron, enables you to see and simulate a major turning point in military weaponry and tactics, with the third game in the series, Blood & Roses.

Blood & Roses focuses on the battles of the Wars of the Roses in England, between 1455 and 1487. This was warfare in which most men were truly "of iron", heavily and totally armored to such a point that their mobility was suspect. It was also the introduction of gunpowder - mostly field artillery - in noticeable numbers. And while many English men-at-arms were mounted, they did so almost entirely for transport. Most fighting was on foot ... and it was quite vicious.

Blood & Roses is designed for quick learning and easy play. Game rules are short, there are no "turns" - play is Continual, with ample opportunities to steal play from your opponent - and combat resolution is a single dieroll. Playing time is about 1-2 hours, per battle.

Blood & Roses is also GMT's gift to the gamer who enjoys playing solitaire - the system can easily be played solo or face-to-face play without any loss in insight or Fun - to see what happened in these famous battles and why.
