Relive the Greatest Siege in History!
A vendetta spanning decades reaches its terrible and bloody crescendo!
Suleiman the Magnificent's 30,000 strong armada descends on the 500 beleaguered Knights of St John and the defending people of Malta, with the express purpose of wiping them from existence, and changing the course of history forever...
1565, St. Elmo's Pay is an asymmetric, competitive, tactical card game, and successor to the award-winning 1066, Tears to Many Mothers (also available in this campaign), with which it is fully compatible. Each player, as either Ottoman Turks or Knights of St John, musters troops and resources to overcome the various obstacles in their path before the two armies clash in an epic siege over three frontiers on the tiny island of Malta: Birgu, Senglea, and the doomed fortress of Saint Elmo.
Players: 1-2 Time: 30-40 minutes Ages: 10+
