Turn 1
Loins advance 1 (to 4)
Play Chard
Pick up Chard for extra draw
Play Chard

Turn 2
Chest advances 2 (to 3)
Chard starts to build barricades (1/3 done)
Play Schiess

Turn 3
Loins advance 2 (to 2)
Discard "Independent Fire at Will" to attack Loins; 3,3: nothing
(Possibly should have discarded Bromhead for the extra die)
(Possibly should have discarded "Here they come..." to attack & build barricades)
Play Bromhead

Turn 4
Everything advances 2, including Loins (to 0)
Game over (10VPS I think?)

Definitely not the most satisfying experience.
I don't think I missed anything.
At least it probably would have gone a lot faster if I hadn't been puzzling over the rules.
Not sure when/if I'll try it again since I'm not a fan of games where my actions/choices seem to be meaningless (or seem like they might be meaningless in some non-trivial percentage of games played).

I think this session was more of a rare event.....and on the good side, if you weren't taking time to do reading, it is over quick enough that you can still reset and get another game or two in.

I suppose I'm just unlucky...

I tried again and this time lasted 6 turns (technically 5 since one of the iMpi chits was Seniority Debate).

- Both horns move 2
- R (wooo... respite!)
- Left horn moves 1 (bit nervous now)
- Seniority Debate (crap...)
- Chest moves 1 (drew "Mark your target", 4 dice vs medium, maybe I can knock the Left horn back)
- Left horn moves 2 (...)

On the plus side, this time it was over pretty quickly.
For now I think I'll put the game back in its bag for a bit.
