Brian Boru Forum Game: The king is not dead

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:


@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…

No additional helmets for me.

None for me either, then! @newbrof

hm, I wonder if I should pay 4 coins for 2 helmets… I pay 2 coins and take 1 helmet.

Matt: 5, 1, 2, 10 (Coins, Renown, Helmets, Victory Points)
Dave: 5, 1, 5, 10
newbrof: 2, 1, 5, 10

I play my Yellow 4

fighting in north of Briefne, last battle.

@Matt_W Your turn!

btw. forgot to remove 2 helmets from the map. All vikings defeated, no raid will happen…

@newbrof plays card 4


I’ll play card 21


You’re up @Dave_Perkins . Final card of the round.

@Matt_W I played the yellow(!) 4

I’ll play 22 and take the town!

Sorry, edited to fix.

Dave plays 22


You guys know you can cut and paste from the image in the OP? Just type Windows+Shift+S and draw a box around what you want to clip. Then Control+V in your post.

@newbrof you’re up. Town or letters?

Just got my copy of John Company 2nd Edition in the mail. It’s heavy in every sense of the word.

I’m usually on my phone. Yay John Company!

I very much appreciate that you’ve been pasting in my cards!

@Matt_W I take the money, since I am already Brigids favourite…

Do you expand with your money? I can’t expand, no town with roads for me…

This ends the round. I will go through all phases. Step by step, and then we can start Act II of this irish drama.

Matt: 7, 1, 2, 10 (Coins, Renown, Helmets, Victory Points)
Dave: 3, 1, 5, 10
newbrof: 5, 1, 5, 10

Yep, pay 3 net coins to put a town in the southern spot in Dublinn

Matt: 4, 1, 2, 10 (Coins, Renown, Helmets, Victory Points)
Dave: 3, 1, 5, 10
