4-0 on the scenario.

In my turn, I do not have to do anything to win.

End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • Going as a second, gave me a huge advantage on the scenario.
    I was able to spam my opponent with Errants and score points in his turns.
  • Honestly, I was hoping for two points in my second round.
    Getting three was a nice surprise.
    It made the game one or two rounds shorter.
