Just noticed I never chimed in about my rather short stay in this game.

The reader's digest version is this. I was jumped from the start and threw my eggs in one basket and it backfired. I knew I was taking a big risk trusting my neighbor to the north but didn't seem to have too many options for any other alliances.

I spread myself too thin and my frienemy took me out.

What a fun variant. I do miss the old days of sharing a country with another person and positioning for political power within that country in order to call the shots on what direction to take.

As always, many thanks to our GM for all of his time just so we could have fun.
