1. How in the hell do you kill an "A" block when it is on defense if it can continually retreat before any attacker rolls are made unless you were able to force him into a corner with no places to retreat to? My girlfriend couldn't get more than a hit or two at most on Wallace before I was able to retreat him before the battle starts.
Block can't retreat through the borders opposite side entered battle.
Maybe you mistaken that block at his turn hit or retreat.
Anyway if Wallace constantly retreat then he don't help Scots in battle.
Thought you probably got Scots basic strategy right, they try to avoid frontal assault.
2. It also says that a player who is "forced" to retreat automatically kills of any people who can not retreat by way of border limits. How does this really happen unless the defending player somehow blocked off borders by moving in his men through one of the only borders your men were allowed to retreat through?
there are border limits - 6 blocks over green/black and 2 over red border.
3. Why would you crown the king of Scotland? I know he is a badass piece, but if you lose all of your nobles of one color to the English player, is it really worth it? Plus, one of the winning conditions is to kill the Scottish king. Therefore, no crown, no auto victory unless they sack all of your nobles.
Maybe you have only a couple of that color.
