Count me in - of course! - but one little issue ... I'll be in Sri Lanka from 23 Feb through to 14 March.

Hope that it's OK for me to have a delayed start and pick up the outstanding games when I get back.

Ok guys, the four of us, TDefender, Iandavidsmith, Enakan and yours truly, will play a pre-tournament friendly until Londo returns from his travels. The battle is Flodden and the link is above.

TDefender (English) vs Fogman (Scottish)
Iandavidsmith (English) vs TDefender (Scottish)
Fogman (English) vs Enakan (Scottish)
Enakan (English) vs Iandavidsmith (Scottish)

English player initiates. Enakan can’t initiate so Ian you need to challenge him.
NO fog of war, No double moves.
------------
We’re still looking for 1 player, or 3 if anyone else is interested.

Londo, who has completed most of his conquest of Ceylon - Jaffna, in the north, is the latest town to fall to him - will post challenges and begin playing in about a week's time. 8)

Stay safe!

I guess the Tamil Tigers are now selling produce over there? No more problems?

I'm done with war zones!
