Crossed lances is a game based on the Medieval Tourney.
Have wondered what it would have been like to compete in a joust and a grand mounted melee, if so then these rules could be the made for you.
Crossed Lances has two games within one rule set. The first of our games deal with the jousts you will make, with as many as eight players around one table with possibly 4 tilts in use, these tilts can be homemade or purchased from our shop. We also provide famous knights for you to choose from, but this does not stop you using your own, unless of course we as Crossed Lances put on a Tourne at a show, where only the authorised figures and accessories will be allowed to take part.
These rules cover all the potential hits that can be made in both the joust and the mounted melee’, each using the hit tables provided, whilst retaining the thrill of speed and power. The game is based around the principal of easy to play, quick to play, be realistic in the outcome and above all be enjoyment for all. Crossed Lances is a great family game, it is a very good war-game and is a very much needed history lesson for the children, who are the future of war gaming.
