Re: solo hastings game

Now set the turn duration to ensure that you have to attack rather than just sit there shooting the line waiting for something to happen 8 to 12 turns dependant upon your experience. (Norman turn, saxon turn, turn adjustment)

Will try to post something of a write up of the game played.
