Plotting the afternoon away

Played a quick three player game of Condotierre this afternoon.  Nancy (dark purple) won at the start of the fifth 'round' of battles, over Paul (red) and me (yellow).  It was Paul's first game of this little machievellian gem and, in his obligitory 'I'll read the rules for myself thankyou,' we found a couple aspects that I'd missed on our trial run a couple days ago.  This was the situation at the end of the game:

Purple 6, red and yellow 3 each

The nature of the game for three players was noticeably different than it had been with four.  With three players, that classic 'cut-throat' dynamic came into play, with the added bonus that in this game there are so many ways to do over both the opponents while nominally 'helping' one of them.  Paul and I managed to practically 'give' Nancy's second territory of her eventual six to her and she never looked back from there.  It seemed that two out of every three battles were in effect for the game from not long afterwards so that it is with some pride that we held her off for so long.  Well done Nancy!

I'm looking forward to playing this with five or six players.

oh wow i love board games. hhhmmm my favorate is the resistance because probably the most thrilling so far i've ever played. But nice stuff on your spare time. I also would like to share what I do during my vacant time and unbelievable! I thought the result is too good to be true. I build an online business which at first was just for fun and to cover up my spare time. But now. I am earning a good money here. Better try it too

HOW WAS THE APOSTLE PAUL NOT SAVED? BY STEVE FINNELL

1. The apostle Paul was not saved like the thief on the cross.
2. The apostle Paul was not saved by saying the sinner's prayer.
3. The apostle Paul was not saved by grace alone.
4. The apostle Paul was not saved by faith only.
5. The apostle Paul was not saved by baptism alone.
6. The apostle Paul was not saved by confession alone.
7. The apostle Paul was not saved by repentance alone.
8. The apostle Paul was not saved on the road to Damascus.

HOW WAS THE APOSTLE PAUL SAVED?

The apostle Paul was saved like the three thousand that were saved on the Day of Pentecost. He was saved just like every person saved under the new covenant.

What did Peter preach on the Day of Pentecost?

1. John 3:16 Saved by faith.The apostle Peter preached Jesus as Lord and Savior.(Acts 2:36)
2. Romans 10:9 Believe the resurrection of Jesus. Peter preached the resurrection.(Acts 2:25-35)
3. Acts 3:19 Saved by repentance. The apostle Peter preached repentance. (Acts 2:38)
4. Mark 16:16 Saved by water immersion. Peter preached forgiveness through water baptism. (Acts 2:38)(Acts 2:40-41)

1. Saul (Paul) Believed and repented on the road to Damascus. (Acts 9:3-6)

2. Saul (Paul) Prayed three days while on the road to Damascus, however, neither faith alone, nor saying a sinner's prayer was sufficient for him to have his sins forgiven. (Acts 9:9-11)

3. Saul (Paul) had his sins forgiven after three days on the road to Damascus. Acts 22:10-16......16 'And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.(NKJV)

Faith only advocates say that Saul's sins were forgiven because he called on the name of the Lord, not because of water baptism. That contradicts their own "faith only" belief that you are saved the minute you believe. Saul believed and repented three days prior on the road to Damascus.


The apostle Paul was saved just like every other person that was saved or will be saved under the new covenant. 1. Faith, John 3:16 2. Confession, Romans 10:9 3. Repentance, Acts 3:19 4. Immersion in water, Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16

NOTE: The thief on the cross was saved before the New Testament was in force. He was not saved on or after the Day of Pentecost. The new covenant was only in force after the resurrection and Ascension of Jesus.
