For familiarity and ease of play I decided core "Song of Blades and Heroes" was the game of choice and set up 3 basic 300pt forces:
- Wood Elves (ArabianQueen): Leader, 2 archers and 4 warriors (I dropped the forester special rule as the board had no forests!)
- Barbarians (ArabianSquire): Leader, 1 Cavalry, 5 Warriors
- Ratmen (Me!): Leader, Standard Bearer and 8 warriors
A single magic scroll was placed on top of the central structure. Whoever could grab it and make ift off table was the winner.
