The League of Augsburg has previewed Donnybrook (no, they didn’t bring the old TV show back… does anyone else besides me even remember that show?), their new skirmish set of rules for the years 1660-1760.
From the release:
Donnybrook is a fast paced skirmish game designed to cover conflicts across the globe from 1660 to 1760. The basic game of requires a force of 12-48 models, depending on their quality, and one character who represents the player on the table top. Games are played on a 4×4′ table. You can add additional units and additional characters as you like, as long as both sides use the same conventions, though you’ll need a larger table as you increase the numbers! Donnybrook uses a card driven turn system that creates exciting, unpredictable play. Besides leading government troops into battle, you can choose mobs of armed peasants, murderous brigands, religious fanatics, sinister cultists, ferocious highlanders, or tribal natives. This book includes the rules, faction lists, weapons primer, random events, seven scenarios, and a period and theater guide.
The game will be available for pre-order in the next few weeks…
