The core rules are simple, designed for new wargamers of all ages to pick up and play. A card deck decides who moves next. You can play other special cards to – say – dress up as a washerwoman and have nobody say you aren't. Combat is based on PAL's card version of Rock-Paper-Scissors, where you can jump back or leap aside from a blow, or taunt your opponent with insults.
Additional rules allow for personalising your own 'faction' for good or evil, and developing your characters and their followings through a series of games. We include a whole set of scenarios, from simple 'starter' encounters to full-blown multi-player battles. You can play out a full ongoing campaign where your heroes and their followers gain success and reputation – or don't. And, if you want to take the outlaw motif beyond Sherwood, the campaign system can be moved to the Scots or Welsh borders, the marshes of East Anglia, or Ireland.
There's a history of the real Robin Hood, sources for figures, and a listing of books, movies and television shows.
If you want to rob from the rich and give to the poor, or simply keep it all yourself, Outlaws of Sherwood is the game for you!
