Avalon Hill's first release after long absence is a severely underrated and undersold game. Kingmaker is a wonderful PC conversion of an AH board game. Choose to be either Lancaster or York in the famed "War of the Roses" in medieval England. The goal: have your faction secure a royal heir, get him/her crowned King/Queen Regent, and then keep him/her alive whilst you exterminate all the other royal pretenders. Solid AI, original premise (you can "assign" lots of titles to your vassals, and abduct several heirs apparent), and excellent music despite the simplistic battle interface.
