The village had to be defended against a force sent to teach them a lesson. Pay the Danegeld or suffer!! There were 3 defenders with a total of 12 Saga points worth of troops to divide up amongst themselves. As it happened they split it evenly with 4 points each. The attackers had 18 points to play with and they too split the points evenly.
Players were then able to choose whichever faction they wanted to be.

|Look!!! There is more of them coming in over there!|
By the end of the night the defenders had lost too many troops and had no choice but to concede. In fairness to them I don't think , now, that the attacking side needed the extra points, at least not as many extra as I gave them. Still an enjoyable night and maybe this will encourage us to get on with the campaign that was put on hold to get Gettysburg out of the way.
