AGER SANGUINIS ("The Field of Blood", the name of the battle lost by Roger of Antioch in 1119) is set in Northern Syria in the 12th Century and simulates the fierce conflicts of the descendants of the Normans who followed Bohemond of Tarento, son of Robert Guiscard and founder of the principality of Antioch. The game includes the various factions at stake in this civilization showdown: Knights Hospitaller, Antiochian Normans, Armenians and Seljuk Turks.

The tactical game includes 3 modular maps and over 170 different characters in various stances: Healthy, stunned, wounded or... dead! 1 map and 60 counters are used for simulating campaigns where skirmishes are played out with the tactical game.

16 tactical scenarios of increasing complexity allow for a gradual and easy learning of the rules. The last 4 scenarios require additional game components which are available separately.

Tactical rules are intended to simulate man-to-man combat, shooting with bows or crossbows, throwing pots of naphta and rules for camels.
