A Set Of simple fast Play rules for the age of Muskets, it has an unusual turn system

the game uses turns unusualy, whenever a double is thrown the turn flips to the other side.

movement has 3 ranges short Medium or Long, foot is short 6 inches, things like boats medium 12 inches, horses long 18inches. the player whoes turn it is can move one fig at a time. with the turn ststem you never know if your group can get big enough for an attack.

if a fig moves or fires any enemy fig in range may melee or fire .

you may move two figs together BUT if attacked they both suffer the results

you can only attack one fig in any attack.

each attack uses the to hit table, you roll 2 D6s and add or subtract Modifiers and see if you have hit, if you hit you roll 1 D6 and apply the result from the attack result table
