The First of the Fast Forward History Games ...

Look back into the mists of time...the southern coast of England looms above a dreary channel. Rising from the mist, Roman legions march steadily ashore to sweep across England. Inexorably they cross the countryside, building their forts everywhere. For a time, an uneasy peace is enforced over the land.

When civil wars call the legions home, they leave the verdant fields of Britain open to the Saxon, Angle and Jute invaders. Only the Romano-British stand for the old rule...and their dreams of kingdom are swept away by the fresh blood of the invaders.

Complacency settles over the middle kingdoms. The Welsh entertain ideas of ruling York, and the Picts and Scots squabble in the north. But the Angles and Saxons settle into parrying for predominance so that each might take the title of Bretwalda and farming is the prevailing occupation.

Then the storms begin again! The Danes and the Norsemen strike into long settled territory and the struggle for dominance flares once more. Again, new invaders come to call at the shores of England, this time the Normans, Dubliners and Norwegians. The endgame isn't settled until the last ruler commands his armies.

Four people control the fate of England, but only one will stand at the end to Rule Britannia! Players must participate in at least two Heats to advance to the semi-final.
