I got beaten at Hammer of the Scots again by Dave last night. Last time we played it I was the Scots, and got beaten. Thought maybe the game was unbalanced. So this time I took the English. Made no difference - I still lost. This game is all luck.
Only kidding - it's a fantastic game actually. Great fun, fast, easy to learn, loads of historical flavour, lots of strategic options to puzzle over. A classic.
