Well congrats to Frankie for breaking my winning streak and to Doug for being the only player to win Scenario 5 as the Germans!

My next two opponents, Christian and Doug, are the toughest so if I win one of the next two games I'll consider myself very lucky! :) And if at least one is a complete blowout, that would be nice... All these nailbiters are killing me! One card Frankie! One card! Gahhh!

Im re-evaluating the game to being 35% skill, 65% luck.
If it goes down to 30% skill it matches Memoir.

Well at the moment Christian is way on target to getting top spot which is pretty much what we expected at the start because we all know he's good at CC:E. I would be leaning more toward 40% luck, 60% skill.

I'd say 40% skill, 20% luck and 20% knowing which side to bid for... 8)

I think the reason we love CC:E is because it brings out the best and worse in a person all in a 2-hour timeframe. :D Not even A Game of Thrones can do that!

Hey how did you find the ASL Starter Kit? I love it! It's great to be able to strip away all of the chrome of full ASL to just play the grassroots system every now and then.
