 +=====The Board=====
 +There are 14 empty spaces between each Knight and the centre of the tilting field.  Place board cards in this order - 1,2,3,2 (upside down),1 (upside down).  Place them end to end.  Put the knight cards such that the arrow points at the last square (it has a star on it) at either end.
 +Place the board, and randomly determine the player who will place their aim counter on one of the four starting location on the hit location chart.
 +  * The other player then places their aim counter on a starting location (it may be the same one).
 +  * The starting locations are **A1**, **A5**, **D1**, **D5**
 +Horses start at speed 0.
 +=====The Turn=====
 +   - Both players must put face down in front of them 1 Aim card, 1 Horse card and 1 Knight card.
 +   - Players turn over **aim** cards and resolve them.
 +   - Players turn over **horse** cards and resolve them.
 +   - Both horses accelerate unless cards change their behaviour.
 +    * If a horse is travelling at less than 6 speed, increase its speed by 1.
 +   - Move the horses.
 +    * Check for **The Break**.
 +    * Check for **The Impact**.
 +   - Players turn over **knight** cards and resolve them.
 +All actions are simultaneous.

 +====The Shield====
 +The shield can be in one of four locations, the default location for the shield is **Outward** unless a player changes it through use of cards.
 +There are advantages and disadvantages to using a shield in jousting.  The advantage is that it lessens the impact of blows and you can therefore retain your balance more easily.  The disadvantage is that it is large and makes your profile larger - some areas that would have been misses otherwise, are now hits.
 +<table border=2">"
 +<tr><th>Down Shield</th><td>Impact</td><th>Up Shield</th><td>Impact</td></tr>
 +<tr><th>Inward Shield</th><td>Impact</td><th>Outward Shield</th><td>Impact</td></tr>
 +====The Break====
 +When both knights are at range 0 on the map, impact occurs.  Even if this is partway during a horse's move for their speed.
 +   - Any aim point to the left in levels D (D1, D2 or D3) becomes an automatic miss - the body of the opponent's horse blocks the hit.
 +    * If you have an Impact value above 2, your lance breaks as well.  This is not worth any points.
 +   - Move the horses their full move for their speed.
 +====The Impact====
 +     Each player gets a bonus to their Impact value based on the combined speed at which their horses met at range 0.
 +    *  Speeds 2-5 = +0 Impact
 +    *  Speeds 6-10 = +1 Impact
 +    *  Speeds 11-12 = +2 Impact
 +    The knight that has moved furthest gains +1 Impact.
 +    *  Count the squares from each knight to their starting locations.
 +    Add any factors from Knight cards that are still relevant to your Impact total and to your Balance total.
 +    Add any factors from your shield's position to your balance.
 +    Add any factors from the hit location being aimed at.
 +**Subtract your opponent's total Balance, from your total Impact**
 +  * Impact of 1 = A hit, no result, no points.
 +  * Impact of 2-3 = Break lance.  Worth 1 point on the chest, torso or legs, or 2 points if the head. No points anywhere else.
 +  * Impact of 4 or more = Unhorsed.  Automatic win.
 +    * If both knights are unhorsed, the knight with the highest impact total wins.
 +After three tilts, if neither player is unhorsed - the player with the highest score wins.
