Which game is this?
« on: March 09, 2018, 10:52:43 AM »
Back in the mid 90s, me and my cousin used to play a Turn Based Strategy game set in Britain.

Does anybody here know what this game was called?

Here are the things about the game I remember that I am pretty confident were actually in this game:
- You started in a map of Britain that was split into territories.
- Several Players (either AI or Human) controlled one territory.
- Each turn players bought infantry, archers, and cavalry and used them to conquer neighboring territories (kinda like risk). 
- You win by controlling all of Britain.
- I played it on a PC. (as in not a Mac)

Extra detail: This are things I remember of the game. But I am less confident in them being in it.
- It had simple graphics, and you could see the numbers of your army. But there was no animation of the fights.
- You could see the entirety of Britain at all time, no scrolling.
- There was a way to gain resources (maybe gold) that was based on the territories you own.
- It might have been taxes.
- Each territory had a population so, you were motivated to conquer/ defend heavily populated territories in order to gain an advantage with the taxes.
- I don't recall if you could set the tax rate, but it would seem you couldn't.

I've been thinking about this game for the last couple of years, but my google foo hasn't been working for this.
