Empires of the Middle Ages PBEM (Play By Electronic Mail) game page
Between the glories of Rome and the rise of national states
stood an age in which each land was defined by the virtues and
failings of its monarch. Empires of the Middle Ages is a multi-player game
of diplomacy in which up to six players may act as dynasts
and attempt to build their historical kingdoms into vast empires.
Empires of the Middle Ages is played on a map of Medieval Europe
on which the players record the power of their kingdoms.
Playing cards resolve the basic actions of the game, while
Random Event cards add the flavour - plagues, Crusades, heresy -
of the period.
Empires of the Middle Ages was published in 1980 by SPI (Simulations
Publications Inc). It is long out of print.
