Conwy Castle, at the time of the rebellion. A fair sized attacking force meets with a less than adequet defender, as the castle was ill prepared! Do your best!
Easy level difficulty: attack
hard level difficulty: defend
This was a very good map entry into the siege listings. I enjoyed playing the map but do have a few things to point out.
In playability, as long as you do play as defender, you will have a good challenge. As attacker, it is rather one sided and I was able to take the castle without knocking out a single gate or wall.
One of the biggest flaws in some siege maps is allowing the attacker to drool over the open view of the keep. With the large amount of archers and xbows, I was able to sit back and knock off the Lord without entering the castle.
The above notes would be for both playability and balance.
The map design and creative use of the landscape both earned bonus points and the castle was very nicely designed. A great looking reproduction.
Instructions and story were also pleasing and were also given a bonus.
A great map as defender, but I would love to see the author do a bit of tweaking for attackers.
