331 11/13/2020 9:10:00 PM 1300 Scotland Message i would like to play again switching sides. I enjoyu playing a good player.
I will set it up.

330 11/13/2020 9:04:00 PM 1300 England Message oops, I never saw the 2nd roll . . . damned latent double click . . . I get those every so often . . . had one earlier today in my other game . . . not sure if it's me or the mouse or other.

but you're right, first result counts, so Archers flee

so hits distributed vs 5 blocks significantly weakens force, and I'd have to refire, of course. and I'd never be able to duplicate the 10-hit miracle

so . . . I'll concede.

I'd have to pull back at this point, and lose the two 4-pip inf in 2nd round, and you'll sit tight in South and finally grab Ross on your last 3 cards and get Fr Kn in.

Game over.

But excellent refresher!

It's all coming back very quickly!

If you'd like to go again, great! Either side. Or take a break and maybe later.

Cheers!
329 11/13/2020 8:50:00 PM 1300 Scotland Message You rolled for the Welsh twice. The first was a 5, the 2nd a 1. Mu usual rule is the first roll is used.

279 11/11/2020 7:52:00 PM 1300 England Message IMHO, Scots have winning position, ounce you turn the flank and secure Argyly. All but impossibe for English to retake.

Then you take Ross giving 8 and Fr knight enters, which in combo with Wallace is nasty.

I sorta forgot how important Argyl was, though at least stuck a 4 inf there as fast I as could, but didn't move a noble there on my first card so 3 blocks were there.

It's been a while, but damn this is fun.

Thank you!

And I am playing or, regardless. One never knows . . . .
278 11/11/2020 7:40:00 PM 1300 England Message briefly Angus & Buchann flip

No regroup.

The Argyle commits suicide and flips to you at 1.

Angus & Buchan go home & unflip

My nobles go home, Bruce to Carrick.

Lennox builds 1 and the wounded Inf in Mentieth builds 3.

That's it.
