Hello Owen!

I'm glad that you take part here! Grand Conquest is a challenging game that will give us pleasure. So it's not so important who will win. I'm sure. I will make faults, too...
Hint for the visitors: At the beginning (email) we agreed upon the additional rule D1 (see here).

S233 - E231 => 1
Es231 - 233 => 1
S227 - Es233 => 1
Ess233 - G804 => 1
B802 - 814 => 5
Gess804 - 867 => 8
B807 - 813 => 3

Best greetings!


Little hint: Owen, you can choose the option "Notify me when a reply is posted". So you will be informed about my turn...

hello klaus. you are right, will give a lot of pleasure. However, pleasure and pain often occur at the same time and i suspect i'll end up with most of the pain and you will have most of the pleasure :D

I think i might regret this:

S π K133 => 10
S123 - D121 => 1
Ds121 - A20 => 5
Ds126 - A11 => 4

If i have made a mistake let me know and i'll try again!

all the best for now, owen.

Good evening, Owen!

There is a mistake! I can hear your sob. :-)
But it's not your mistake. I suppose that you have bought the American vinyl board. This board differs from another edition in parts. I described the differences here and created the "common standard", so everybody could use "his" board but the buyers of the American vinyl board have to be aware that some pathes don't exist on the common standard board. It's truly a pity. Now you can hear me crying.

So your last move (Ds126 - A11 => 4) isn't possible on the standard board. You need 6 moving points to reach A11 on the "standard board". Sorry for this inconvenience.

Hello Owen,

I hope that you are not able to read my mind. But indeed it might be a good strategy to try it...

My third turn is following:

Gess 867 - 732 => 7
Ess732 x E130 => 5
Ess130 - 133 => 2
S133 x Gk704 => 1
I'm waiting for your possible recapture.

Kind regards

hello klaus. that was not what i was thinking you were planning. brilliant move. i feel the pain already. i guess my recapture will only prolong this mini-slaughter so here goes:

can i recapture my captured galleon with: Gess 701 x Gs 704 ?

oh, i feel the pain :roll: all the best, owen.
