This is not an iPad game! Field of Glory 2.0 is an award winning gaming system for fighting Ancient & Medieval tabletop battles. The app includes everything you need to get started. It has quick the full set of rules, quick reference sheets, diagrams that explain even the most complex of situations and even a points system to design your own armies and much more. Whether you want to control the armies of Rome under Caesar, the Spartans at Thermopylae, the English at the battle of Crecy or any one of the thousands of other historic battles, Field of Glory gives you the tools to make it happen. The new digital format allows for regular updates and all of the army companions will be added as in app purchases as they are available. This series is intended to give both beginner and expert gamers everything they need to play the battles of ancient and medieval eras on their tabletops. Tested and created by gaming experts, this series includes a rulebook detailing the gaming system, and companion army books which help players select and build their historically accurate army with the relevant units or troop types they want to take onto the field of battle. The striking Field of Glory rulebook includes color coding for easy navigation, clear photographs of miniatures and diagrams (showing rules examples, troop placements, scale considerations and more), detailed Osprey artwork, a comprehensive painting guide, an overview of the history of this world of warfare, organization tables and a background to the men who fought on the ground. Containing two ready to use army lists, this rulebook can either stand alone and be used for immediate gaming, or can be combined with the companion volumes to recreate a more diverse range of conflicts.
If you are new to tabletop miniatures gaming you can find out more details on wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wargaming#Miniature_wargaming). What this doesn't tell you however is the friendship and fun that can be had while enjoying a good wargame. Then you have the chance to re-live the battle down the pub afterwards!
