Bloody Mary is the title of Gary Stevens' free downloadable board game of intrigue in the Tudor Court. Stevens writes:
In this game you get to relive the politics of middle Tudor England as you strive to secure your candidate for the Throne... and keep your own head.
The game starts at the coronation of Henry VIII's son Edward. It follows the history of mid-Tudor England for a further 25 years. You must plot to place your favoured candidate on the throne. You play the part of a faction of courtiers trying to preserve your power and influence. The game is solidly based in history (well, as solidly as I can make it). It is meant to be educational as well as entertaining.
