Mansourah (The Army of the Seventh Crusade, under King (Saint) Louis IX, vs. the Abbuyid Sultanate of Egypt, under Emir Fakr-ed-din ... Egypt, February 8, 1250)
(2nd) Homs (The Mongols of the Ilkhan Horde, under Ketbugha, vs. The Mamluks , under Sultan Qutuz... Syria, October 29, 1281)
Those of you who are enjoying the flying arrows and hooves that dominate the recent GBoH volume, Devil's Horsemen, will find your entertainment grow exponentially with these two new battles for the game.
2nd Homs, the follow-up battle for Ayn Jalut, pits the two great Eastern armies of the era against each other, in force: The Mamluks and the Mongols of the Ilkhan. A massive, swirling cavalry battle so large that one wing never knew what was happening on the other wing, a factor which led to the Mongol downfall.
Mansourah brings in what many gamers have been waiting for: a full-blown Crusader army. This time its that of Louis IX, invading Egypt for a second time, advancing up The Nile only to get stopped by the Mamluks of the last-gasp Abbuyid Dynasty outside their brand-new city, Mansourah. Not only does this game have 3 "battles" of Crusader heavy cavalry -- acting as so many of their bretheren too often did throughout these wars -- but lots of crossbows, field artillery, and even street fighting.
