This episode hit a few snags along the way. Our first recording put us over three, and we ended up getting pillaged, so we had to record another once we’d spent our other episodes. So, here now, finally, is our Mentak Coalition Strategy Guide. They’re a bit more straightforward than some of our previous guides, but that doesn’t mean there are important nuances that any player must tend to. Also, at the top, we chat a bit about our games in the 14 point tournament Semifinals that we both took part in last weekend. More on that experience to come in a future episode, though!
