Nordicon Tournament Report Part 2

Game 2 vs VagrantPoet playing Protectorate

The the major downside of winning your first round, in the second round you have to try to do it again, and against someone you know was good enough to win the first time!

Ciaran, the Event Organiser (EO), was kind enough to roll up these scenarios in advance.
