Each team had a town at the corner of the table. In the center was a large area of woodland, and in the centre of that a Chateau containing fabulous treasures. Each faction would try to make it away with as much gold (chocolate coins) as possible.

At the start of each turn every player was given a random card (or not so random in some instances) where you could add or lose units or have your turn phase completely shafted (thanks Quint!).
In order to get to the Chateau you had to negotiate the woods, moving through them could result in penalties, such as losing your unit completely or taking casualties, or you could get bonuses such as +2 stamina, +2 attacks, etc.

I managed to filch a few chocolate coins, and I don't doubt had a few of my own filched too. Karsten arrived after lunch to assist me with the mission.
We had a great time and at the end Adie was the winner with the most chocolate coins, never trust a policeman when there is chocolate money to be filched :)
That evening those of us still about retired to the Masala where we ate a fantastic curry and continued the back stabbing and double dealing with a game of Munchkins between courses - I don't know what the other diners must have thought.
I had a new camera for Christmas, I'm still learning with it, but I may have overdone the photos.
