Henry: The Agincourt Campaign, 1415 (GMT Games)GMT Games has a new title in Levy & Campaign series up on the P500 preorder listing. Henry: The Agincourt Campaign, 1415 promises a streamlined introduction to the L&C series, from designer Joe Schmidt. The game is for one or two players, ages 14+, plays in around one to three hours, and is available at the preorder price of $49.00 with an eventual MSRP of $69.00.

About the game:

In HENRY, the fifth game in Volko Ruhnke’s Levy & Campaign Series, players will bring to life all of the drama of the famous Agincourt campaign. Players will lead either the English forces of King Henry V or the French Nobility in the levying of forces, management of logistics, and campaigning through Northern France.

Designed by Joe Schmidt, HENRY aims to create a more streamlined version of Levy & Campaign that is equally suitable for someone’s first experience  or a quicker lunchtime gaming session. The English player will build their army at the outset of the game, and in doing so set their victory conditions based on these choices, and then begin their campaign. While the English march through Normandy, the French Nobles will need to rapidly respond by levying their forces and navigating the internal court politics of their ongoing civil war between the Armagnac and Burgundian factions. Then, once ready for battle, the French will attempt to hunt down and prevent King Hal and his happy few from returning home.

Historical games always offer us the ability to change the course of history, but the Levy & Campaign system offers us something more focused on the human element. Humans need to be fed, and that food needs to be both secured and transported. Without that, even the greatest of armies will fail. HENRY endeavors to lift the veil of the mythology of the Battle of Agincourt to offer a more detailed look into the circumstances that created the legend.
