# Brian Boru Forum Game: The king is not dead

Play the 11 on the red city in northwestern Connaught!

Dave's hand (4 cards)

5, 14, 17, 22

Dave plays

on a lonely red city.

@Dave_Perkins, you should only have 3 cards now.

that’s sad. Dave played his yellow 10 twice.
He played so far 16 10 24 10 11

how do we repair this @Dave_Perkins @Matt_W
I suggest discard one random card from the hand and forget about it or maybe discard a different yellow.

How about replace my last yellow 10 with my yellow 14, and take \$2 from me.

that’s a good solution… let’s do this.

16 10 24 14 11

Matt: 3, 1, 0, 10 (Coins, Renown, Helmets, Victory Points)
Dave: 3, 1, 3, 10
newbrof: 3, 1, 3, 10

I play highest card in the game

"newbrof(3)

4 8 12

Good resolution of the conflict guys! I would’ve been fine with the discard-random-card solution if a more elegant one wasn’t available.

I’ll play 7

Dave wins the hand. I’m lowest card, so I’ll choose to gain the two letters and pay 2 coins to leapfrog to the front of the line.

Matt's hand (3)

21, 18, 2

@Matt_W sorry to disappoint you in your attempt in debauchery, but Brigid demands 4 coins to skip 2 steps.

with your letters you are on top of Dave. With 2 coins you move one step and are on top of me. Another 2 coins would move you ahead of me.

I donate 3 crosses to the church.

Ah, I didn’t see the spot at the bottom of the track with no reward next to it.

I supposed instead of the marriage track, I’ll take two coins no town.

two more rounds to go, last card will not be played.

Matt: 5, 1, 0, 10 (Coins, Renown, Helmets, Victory Points)
Dave: 5, 1, 3, 10
newbrof: 3, 1, 3, 10

@Dave_Perkins you won a dirty, old town. Where next?

Can you take a picture of the board? If not, I can figure it out eventually.

Play my 5 on the red town by the lake in Connaught!

dave played:

me:

@Matt_W Let’s have an old-style buhurt at red-lake-town 1vs1vs1!

I’ll play red 2

Since I’m the lowest, I’ll go first and take 2 Viking tokens.

Matt's hand (2)

18, 21

Two axes for me, too!

@Matt_W @Dave_Perkins Do you guys take more helmets, 2 gold per helmet?
Matt to go first, then Dave. I will decide after you…
