"All in all, this is a small game with a big punch and is very historical in both looks and play." - Paul N. Solo War Gaming
In the NAME of JUSTICE is a grand tactical simulation of low complexity about the 13th century battle of the Second Baron’s War, part of the struggle to limit royal power in England. Earl Simon Montfort has gathered an army of dissatisfied rebel barons and, by stealing a march, had surprised the royal forces under King Henry III at the small East Sussex town of Lewes. The Battle of Lewes was the first on English soil in nearly fifty years and was the last "gentlemanly" conflict. At the Battle of Evesham in 1265 and after, no quarter was given.
For what is more right than law, whereby all things are ruled? And what is more true than justice, whereby matters are decided?
The Song of Lewes, 1264

"The subject matter appeals greatly to me. Armored knights, bowmen and slingers, men-at-arms and all that heraldry - what's not to love?!...absolutely perfect for solo play...I love the map...The counters are colorful and very evocative of the age..The armies are formed around Ward Leaders and the two Army Leaders. These are the main personalities (that were historically) present on the field of battle and being 'In Command' is vital for cohesion and is a realistic mechanic for this period...(the three theoretical scenarios are) a great plus and a rare addition to any historical war game."

"What's not to like? There's hilly terrain, an open field, a river, a castle, and a church. You've got horsemen, archers, and infantry. It's all chit pull driven, allowing for plenty of replayability. Obscure history, short rules, and fast play round out the package.
Another WDG winner!"
