This game didn't turn out how I expected. Tibo plays from the north against taclub in the south. Apparently this is a no EMG game, and both players take half of the map in thier expansion. Then the battle begins.
The only games I've seen with taclub in it thus far have been no EMG games. For you it seems that it might be time to take the next step. Ditch that dumb rule and let's see what you can do.
