Pendragon: The Fall of Roman Britain is a board game about the fall of Roman Britain, from the first large-scale raids of Irish, Pictish, and Saxon raiders on the island, to the establishments of successor kingdoms, both Celtic and Germanic. It adapts GMT Games' lauded COIN Series' game system about asymmetrical conflicts to depict late Roman warfare, including raiders, fortifications, and Foederati, and boasts an evolving model of political, military, religious, and economic aspects to depict the mutations of 5th century Britain.
In Pendragon, 1 to 4 players each take the roles of one or more Factions in Britain: the post-Roman army in Britain seeking to maintain imperial order; the landholding aristocracy of the Briton tribes aiming at recovering their independence while preserving their lands and wealth; the Germanic groups looking for new opportunities across the North Sea; and the non-Romanized Celtic peoples from across the Irish Sea or from the cold North eyeing the disintegrating provinces with appetite.
