Re: Was I too nice to my wife? (Rules Question)
If the Giants occupy a mountain region, then they get the -1 bonus for any conquests they make of any region adjacent to the mountain region. There is no "altitude" based theme rationale (or "running downhill" or "rolling boulders downhill" or any such thing) for the Giants' bonus. They just have an easier time when they are attacking from a mountain region.
I was pretty sure this was the case. Thanks!
You can't be too nice to your wife.:D
This was the first time I've won, so maybe she went easy on me this time.
So if you'd attacked one less region you would have tied her?
Actually since all the non-empty regions I attacked were her declining race, she would have won by one point if I had attacked one less region.
