There seems to be a lot of rulesets called some variation on the X & Y theme, like Fire & Fury, Badgers & Burrows, Oak & Iron, Sword & Spear, etc.  If you were going to launch your own rules, what X & Y name would you give them?  The less sensible the better...!

Actually that is just one strand; it seems single phrase concepts are also all the rage: Rommel, Blucher, Chamberlain, Maurice.  Our own choice is for X to Y where X is the first well known battle in the period and Y is the last: Arras to the Ardennes.  There is some humour in there but really designed to be informative rather than the light entertainment envisaged in the OP.

Well .... pikes, armoured cavalry, castle under siege, the great and the good raising their retainers and leading them off to the wars? Could well be! Smiley

My experience of the rules was purely ECW; perhaps they used the same title and general concepts for different periods.
