THE FATE OF MARY STUART
The Fate of Mary Stuart (Microgame)
by Marco Arnaudo
Mary Stuart has been sentenced to death, but why is Elizabeth stalling the execution?
Players take the roles of historical figures who attempt to influence the queen to confirm the sentence, pardon Mary, execute her through a different legal process, or maybe even remove her by unsavory means... Politics, religion, private interests, the fragile relationship with Scotland, the war in the Netherlands, and possible war with Spain are all factors that will come into play.
