We Happy Few: The Battle of Agincourt

Watermarked PDF

The only Agincourt game you will ever need!

Near a place called Agincourt, Henry V of England and the exhausted, disease-ridden remainder of his army took on a French force the size of which vastly outnumbered his own, and proceeded to wipe the floor with 'em. The French may have had the numbers, the knights, and the horses, but Hal had a strong defensive position and the all-important English longbow. The French sneered at the bowmen, but like the man said, don't nock it until you've tried it.

"We Happy Few" recreates one of the most famous battles of the Middle Ages by using the basic skeleton of the S&S system seen in such titles as Flying Pig Games’ "Stamford Bridge" and "A Hill Near Hastings", with important modifications to better suit both the later era and this specific battle. Chief among these is a clever, speedy, and diceless alternative to opportunity/reaction fire concepts that reflects the difficulties inherent in moving under missile fire. This results in a very tough game for the French Player. The English Player is favored to recreate the historical result, but it’s not a stroll in the park.

Like all S&S games, "We Happy Few" is an ideal introduction to wargaming, but with just enough grit to satisfy the seasoned counter-clipper.

"We Happy Few" has everything you'll need except for a six-sided die:


  • 88 colorful counters -- only 14 of which are English. We really put the "Few" in "We Happy Few"!
  • 1 sumptuous and verdant 11x17 inch map that will make you "quiver" with excitement.
  • 5 pages of the rules -- sharp, swift, and straight to the point.
  • A spiffy Ziploc bag to keep it crisp till next Crispin Crispian.

Errata for first printing: 

-The Player Aid refers to Units being "Suppressed". This should be "Disrupted"; Suppression is a similar game state in other titles in the series. (p. 6) 

-Rule 2.4 gives the English Initiative, and Rule 3.0 the French. 3.0 is correct. (p. 2) 

-Rule 6.4, "for the second hex entered", this should be "for each additional hex entered". (p. 3)

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
