Good short game this, I survived the early attack although I was nearly caught off guard by his early strelets. Having survived that I quickly and out boomed him. Managed to get in loads of food which kept my muskets flowing.
The guy I played against has told me that this game should be watched shwoing "How NOT to play Russians?" so there is something to learn in there! You'll get me next time TK ;)
edit/ Also I know my micro was truly awful in my attack, my poor cannons!
