I'm so glad that I found this forum and game. My father bought the game for me for Christmas back when it first came out. I am now teaching my 8-year old son to play the original game, running it in DosBox of course. Despite having played many times over the 20-years I have never gotten 500 points. I even attempted to read the text files to determine where all the points were but couldn't pull it off.

Wow is this game 20 years old. makes me feel old. I played this when it first came out in1989 and loved it. It was a nice mix of rpg and stratagy.
I must have played it at least 20 times. it was very addictive. i remember thinking "'just one more round " and ending up playing into the wee smalls.I am happy to find this site and stoked that one of the original writers of the game is here. well done Russell your hard work gave me lots of fun. i would love to see a remake and would buy it in a flash!!

Thanks, the game was addictive. We had a friend who played for many hours, until his wife was angry and turned off the computer. He hadn't saved his game even once!

I am having problems starting the game with my Win 7 64-bit. Anyone know a way around this? Would love to play the game again and remember what the 80's were like in my teenageroom..

Try DOSBOX: http://www.dosbox.com/

Let us know if that works!

That's good to know. I'm sure there are a few people who will find that information helpful.

Salutation! Wow, I was thinking about Sword of Aragon last night, googled it and found this site! I always considered this game is very revolutionary even for today's standard. Anyway, Merlin / Russell, was it intentional that you can have multiple priests casting prayer to get to 100% blessing? With that, basically you can charge into any type of enemy with very few (or even no) casualties. Man, I will dust up my game, load DOSBOX and play it again tonight!
