  1. Feudal

    Feudal is a chess-like board wargame originally published by 3M Company in 1967 as part of its bookshelf game series. It was kept in print by Avalon Hill after they purchased 3M's game division, until Avalon Hill was in turn bought by Hasbro. The object of the game is to either occupy one's opponent's castle or to capture all of one's opponent's royalty. There are six sets of pieces in three shades each of blue and brown. Each set consists of thirteen figures, which are limited not only in their method of movement but also their range of attack, and a stationary castle piece. The play area consists of four plastic peg boards depicting empty, rough, and mountainous terrain.
