So I stupidly decided to play this with my wife. She was concerned that because I’d played it already, and she thought it was horribly confusing to play, that she’d have no hope of winning at all.
It didn’t really surprise me that she won the first game. After all, I wasn’t being as evil with castle/road blocking as I could have been, suggested better moves than ones she was contemplating, and generally just concentrated on her moves rather than my own.
But the second game? And the third? And the quick game against an Easy CPU while she was making a cup of tea?
Clearly, I am crap at this.
