It seems like both play test games ended early. The first one on turn 2 and the second one on turn 3. Do you think that this will be normal? Is it only set up for this type of "quick game"?
The game has only 5 turns. I haven't played enough to give a definite answer but I suspect the game should end during turns 3 or 4. Our two turn game was just being in the right place at the right time to take advantage of the unexpected results of the previous battle between Mark and Mervyn.
