This Friday we welcome a certain Mr. Whitby to Firestorm Carpets LGS and Grill. He comes with a certain “baggage”, namely he knows the rules. We frown on people who know the rules of L’art de la Guerre in Cardiff. Unlike the emigre community of Cardiff, Andy’s points values add up! Even hie fields are rectangular for God’s sake! I wasn’t hopeful about the outcome of tonight’s game. I returned to my old favourite, Medieval Spain, all elite knights and fast paced jinetes.
Senor Whitby was wise to my elitist Knights, he brought warwagons ( and no one understands those rules, not even brain box Fry) and crossbow armed cavalry. Plate armour is reduced to the same protection as a wet loincloth. Confidence was ebbing.
It had been a masterclass in how not to play against an East European medieval army. Mr Whitby has promised/ threatened to be a regular visitor on a Friday and I seriously need to up my game. Don and the Clevedon Nomads are also lurking so I may need to take up chess😭😭😫
