248 11/29/2020 11:13:00 AM 1301 Scotland Message "If I had sent 4 to Athol on it would have been a totally different turn."

Agree. Sending 3 left me with just enough firepower to ding Hob and Edw and the valuable 4 pip Bruce, taking some of the sting out of your army for the rest of year.
247 11/29/2020 10:51:00 AM 1301 Scotland Play Card Message from Scotland:
1st card
246 11/29/2020 10:50:00 AM 1300 Scotland End Turn Deck was reshuffled.

245 11/29/2020 10:47:00 AM 1300 Scotland Message So with 2 inf in Mentieth, Fife is empty again.

Ross b1

Athol b1
Buch(2) d1/b1

244 11/29/2020 10:35:00 AM 1300 England Message I levy 6 in England
to you for builds and end turn.

I misplayed my first turn. If I had sent 4 to Athol on it would have been a totally different turn.

243 11/29/2020 10:32:00 AM 1300 Scotland Message So I lost only Fife, which is not bad vs a wintered King Edw.

Saved to some extent by your 3-1-1-1-Pillage versus my 2-2-2-1-Sea. But with Edward's massed Army, a 1 card is still pretty effective.

Now, I need a breather from Edward.
242 11/29/2020 10:26:00 AM 1300 England Message let's end this foolishness. I will concede York
On to wintering. 2 infantry in Mentieth. Rest as you described. Bruce to Anan for 2 builds.

Wallace 3d3 & Angus 3d3 (you would not have sent Hobelars and risk losing permanently)
237 11/29/2020 10:18:00 AM 1300 Scotland Message oops, and since you did spoiling attack to close border into Angus, likely with a knight who will disband anyway,I have to tell you who's there, and I get to fire.

Wallace3, Mar3, Angus3, Barclay2, Graham3
236 11/29/2020 10:13:00 AM 1300 Scotland Message Atholl goes home & flips at 1 (correct?), Bruce (probably to Annan for 2 builds), and Mentieth if not already home,

Scots: Buch>Buch, Mar>Mar, Angus in Angus, Comyn>Bad, Moray>Moray

Then Edw, Hob, 2 Knights go home. And I think you have an extra inf in Argyle, leaving you with inf in Arg, Ment (or Fife), and Anan.

For Scots, it's ugly, -2 inf from Athol and -2 inf from Angus. Now 6!!!! in draw pool.

I'll stop here until I get nod and/or corrections from you.
235 11/29/2020 10:05:00 AM 1300 Scotland Message you're right, Obi Wan

233 11/29/2020 6:37:00 AM 1300 Scotland Message Lothian is empty, correct?
232 11/29/2020 6:33:00 AM 1300 Scotland Message Up early. Restless night.

I think Hobelar is 2, not 3. See log 208.

Too bad Wallace didn't have a hot 3-hit roll. . . .
197 11/25/2020 11:53:00 AM 1300 Scotland Message Please double check. I thought the 4 hits took Edw, Hob, and Bruce all to 2, so the Wallace hit would take someone (likely Bruce) to 1.

Recall, Bruce already at 3 (see #186), So Edw 4>2, Bruce 3>2, and Hobelars 3>2.

So Wallace's last hit before you retreat knocks someone down to 1.

OK. Makes sense. I misread 2nd Hobelar roll for fist, got 'em backwards.

So, Atholl flips. I take the hit onBarclay 4>3.

Wallace 4d3
183 11/24/2020 8:07:00 PM 1300 England Message Hobelar's first roll had 3 hits converting Athol,
His second roll against your reinforcement had 1 hit.
Your turn to fire.
I think I will want to see how wallace does before I make my decision.
182 11/24/2020 3:30:00 PM 1300 Scotland Message Just Atholl at 2 in Atholl.

But after he takes 1 hit from Hobelar, it becomes his trun to fire, before Edw, and instead Atholl retreats to Mar, ending first round, before Edw can fire.

Then my 4 new blocks arrive and we start 2nd round, with me as attacker.

Wallace4 & Barclay4 from Fife
Buchan3 & Graham 4 from Buchan

Now Hobelars fire, then Wallace, and on down the line.

Am I correct?
181 11/24/2020 3:12:00 PM 1300 England Message you take 1 hit and if Wallace is present you roll

Bruce goes home from Lenox to Carrack
Galloway goes home from Annan and Builds 1
King winters in Mentieth with 5 blocks
I have 1 block in Lenox, Galloway, Carrick, Annan, Lanark and Dunbar. 2 blocks in Argyll and Lothian. 5 in Mentieth.
I have you with 1 block in Ross Athol, Mar and Lochaber. 2 blocks in Maury, Badenoch,
Strathspey, Buchan and Angus. 3 blocks in Fife.
I show 2 blocks off board.




169 11/22/2020 3:49:00 PM 1299 Scotland Message Your nobles first, so Ross flips to me at 1.

Atholl, Buchan, Angus, Comyn (to Badenoch), and Moray go home.

Lots of builds:
Ross: +1
Moray: +1 (can't draw)
Badenoch: draw 1, build 1
Strathspey: draw 1, build 1
Buchan: build 2 (no draw)
Angus: draw 1 + 1
Fife: draw 1 + 2
Mar: build 1
Athol: build 1

Maxed out blockwise, short a pip or two here & there,

168 11/22/2020 3:36:00 PM 1299 Scotland Message Curious. Why did you move 1 block from Mentieth to Lennox? What fine point am I missing.
