Total Game Time:
I was planning to test out a theory in fighting high rated Dutch players for a while now, and finally Quicksearch pairs me with one. It has to do with avoiding the slow to train, expensive and very vulnerable Abus Guns.
Common wisdom would say you HAVE TO make Abus Guns to be able to fight a Dutch player in Colonial ... but, not really.
Now, this is the first time I try out this theory, so it's not executed perfectly by any stretch of the imagination, but I stil win out.
Oh and I had the most horrendous luck with treasure in this game (he stole two big gold ones).
Lastly, I think this game highlights how while usually Banks are an advantage, sometimes their immobility can be a serious problem.
