Battle at Sea

The fate of England is in your hands......

(Left-Click on a square under William's Fleet to choose where you want your trebuchet to fire. William gets a turn after each of your turns. The game continues until either Harold's fleet, under your command, or William's fleet is completely destroyed. Each Fleet has nine ships.)

On the day of battle the sea is calm but covered in a thick fog. You can hear William's fleet rowing towards you in the distance but cannot see them. You have trebuchets mounted to the hulls of your Saxon ships and decide the best bet is to fire randomly into the fog and hope to destroy them instead of waiting for the fog to clear and fight them sword to sword. Since trebuchets take so long to reload with new stone, William will be able to counter each of your shots with a shot of his own.
