Brian Boru Forum Game: The king is not dead

I play my red 15

over to @Matt_W drumroll


4 6 8 12 13 23 25

I’ll play 20 and take the town.


Matt (6)

1, 21, 18, 19, 2, 7

@Dave_Perkins chose your consolation price

I will choose 3 axes, to smash 3 helmets!

Here’s my next play for after Dave chooses:

Open after Dave's play

Place the ring here

and play card 19

remaining hand:

Matt (5)

1, 21, 18, 2, 7

Two letters for my dear Bridget! Brigid, I mean. My dearest Brigid.

Copied my play down here so it makes sense with the game flow.

Place the ring here

and play card 19

You’re up @Dave_Perkins

Just waiting for a board update.

@Dave_Perkins here you go. Fight for blue Dead-End Town.
This will trigger the scoring for this region

Do we do table talk here? Because, then I would say: go, get him! or hit him hard!

Love table talk! But I am not sure what’s yours means. :)

it means: kill him with a high church or royal card!

Now that’s Table Talk! I’ll go soon.

I am entirely in favor of table talk. I’m just now starting to see how strategy works in this game. I think I misplayed my first hand, but am warming up. I welcome your attempts to crush me. :)

I’d think that @newbrof would prefer that you take this city, @Matt_W, so he’d take the lead 2-1-1 instead of being tied.

I wrote as much to Brigid and am waiting for her wise counsel.

Matt is green, I really loved if Dave and Matt would tie here 2:2 … I also have some nice letters for Brigid in my pocket.

Ah ha, that makes more sense. Got you two mixed up.

Brigid hears tales of rabid Vikings and asks me to play the 24.


Dave played:

I pack some carrier pigeons and send 3 letters to 4VP-Brigid


@Matt_W wins again! We need to stop this guy!

Matt pays one coin and befriends the town, I send the letters and Dave slays some Vikings (right?)

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

@Dave_Perkins you can pay 2 gold for 1 additional helmet, if you want to.

@Matt_W where next?


4 6 8 12 25

Yes kill Vikings but don’t kill an extra!

3 vikings are dead, there you have it
