  1. I have enjoyed your coverage of the Wars of the Roses. You have a great delivery. I do not catch most of your British expressions, but still like the podcast. I would like to have heard about the doings in Ireland during the Cousin’s War for at least part of a show however. I too was a Kingmaker player back in the day and have been hooked on the period ever since. I loved the game even though it was flawed.

    1. Yes I must admit I could have done much more on Ireland during the period. From memory I think I have a bit of a catch up after I get to Henry VII, but could be wrong. And yes, much as I loved Kingmaker, it was deeply flawed. the game always seemed to end with a massive bust up in the midlands because everyone decided the game had to end sometime!
