    Getting a bit sick of these players entering tournaments, playing a couple of moves and quitting. Messes the group up for all those concerned. Read the damn rules before entering in future!

                (KingEnglander enters stage left, throws down gauntlet)

     "Ones heart doth quicken with defiance to greed,

    Defense of the realm and Ones subjects to lead.

    Aggressor repelled amidst strong castle walls

    Thence a King lays prostrate, from a kick in the halls" !!


     . . . Good fortune and swift return to all you fellow Brits !
