I think we all learned this lesson with 'New Coke'.
In my defense I wanted to try my old two pronged Varangian attack. It failed miserably as you'll see.
My mate Martin was keen for SAGA so we had a throw down last week. He had a list of Anglo Saxons, in fact a very dangerous list for me. Four units of Warriors and two of levee, he loves his hordes! With his skill in his battle board he was able to buff them nearly every turn. Yikes, I should have been very careful around this, but as Thursday is a workday for me all of my smarts is gone. Charge!
|A nice wee dale. Also a cave, our objective.|
|Rurik and his fellow Varangians|
|Dirty dirty Anglo Saxons|
|Levees and Anglo Saxon warriors|
|The race for the cave begins|
|Anglo Saxon levee making a run for the cave!|
|Martin has learned his battle board well!|
|His archers turn into warriors and cut down four of my warriors!|
|This is right after my warriors bounced off of his warriors!|
|After smashing his only flank protection Rurik falls to the villains. By one roll!|
I only killed a couple warriors in three turns.
I lost my Warlord in turn three!
Nice work Martin, good game!
I'm going back to my old filthy habit of piling 12 Varangians onto whatever unit you put in front of me.;-)
