Actually Charles, I feel some of the great so called battles in our history were nothing more than "chess games", etc. Thus to a deadly boring board game was added multiple players or heroes, deadly winning or loosing cavalry charges, setting into the castle and under seige, with the lowly foot soldiers giving up there lives for King and Queen, etc. Of course there was the everpresent priests or priestess involved, as well as the lovely and powerful Queen, who was really the power behind all! After all, the Queen manufactured the next King or Queen!
