As Robin Hood, enlist the support of the local populace and rob the rich to give to the poor.
I saw a review of this little-known 1979 Avalon Hill game on Gameshark and thought it sounded just like the kind of game I like, so I decided to make my own copy! After a couple of weeks work in my spare time, I’d designed a complete remake of the game with a new large board, large counters, a double-sided rules summary and double-sided play reference sheets. I have no idea of the current copyright status of the game—possibly it has reverted to the designer Joe Bisio. However this is a completely not-for-profit project, done without permission. The illustrations I used on the board and counters were originally by Stanley Herbert and taken from England: Book 1 The Medieval Scene by R.J Unstead (A&C Black, 1963), again without permission. They have that ‘Boy’s Own Adventure’ feel that I felt worked really well for the Robin Hood theme. Oh, and the logo is a shamelessly modified version of the title screen from Errol Flynn’s 1938 film The Adventures of Robin Hood.
That’s some beautiful work, there. I had coins laser cut out of basswood, and they look great.
I’d love to see them – how about joining the forums and posting a photo?
Just found this game at the bottom of a box that’s been in garage for years, looks like fun!!
Fantastic work, thank you. I’m going to try to print this out in a day or two, making the 6 fold board should be interesting.
