The Ballad of Bayonets

Fresh off a revolution that saw the beheading of its king and the establishment of a republic, France is on the rise. But at whose expense? After dual revolutions in America and France, kings and emperors around Europe are starting to become nervous. Will they be able to stay on their thrones while fighting off belligerent neighbors? The Ballad of Bayonets is a free megagame for everyone who has secretly wished to conquer a continent.

The Ballad of Bayonets aims to be fun first, and educational second. Previous knowledge of the history and the time period is not required or encouraged.

Check-in starts at 11:30am. Light refreshments will be provided.
