Robin Hood


Robin Hood is an old-school style tactical solitaire/2-player co-op board game of action and adventure, with a bit of wargame and RPG elements mixed in. An open-ended sandbox style game where the player may choose his own path.

Set in Nottingham Shire, England in the year 1180, the player will control up to 6 Merry Men at once. The Merry Men will frequently encounter enemy bandits, Nottingham soldiers, or possibly even Foresters in Sherwood Forest.

The player moves his band of Merry Men around the map, searching for rich targets to steal from, visiting Newstead Abbey and The Blue Boar Inn to buy necessary items, gamble, or pick up new quests. They may even sneak into a castle in order to steal gold or rescue a peasant in the dungeon.

As the Merry Men earn more experience points, they will continue to improve their skills.

The ultimate goal of your Merry Men is to arm the towns of Nottingham Shire, convince them to rebel and attack Nottingham Castle, and remove the Sheriff from power before December 31st, 1180. To accomplish this, the Merry Men must increase Loyalty of the town to 10, plus arm the town with 10 weapons. The more towns that take part in the rebellion, the better chance they will have of succeeding in defeating Nottingham Castle and removing the Sheriff from power. But if the towns fail to remove the Sheriff before December 31st, the Merry Men will all be automatically hunted down and executed.

The game includes the following components:

- 1 Tables Book (24 pages)

- 8 Game Mats (A4)

- 432 5/8 inch counters

- 30 Game Cards

- 1 Merry Men Status Sheet

- 1 Save Game Log Sheet

- 1 Quick-Start Guide (4 pages)

With most of the rules integrated into the tables, there is practically no learning curve or rules memorization. And with various enemy types, weapons, items, numerous Merry Men skills, quests, random events, and a multitude of table modifiers, Robin Hood offers high replay value. Can you and your Merry Men convince the towns of Nottihham Shire to rebel against the Sheriff before time runs out?

What a brilliant game! Easy to learn as you just work through the tables which are set out in a logical order. It is a challenging game with lots of repeatability.

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.
