Shannon (countessmom) | 4087 comments Isn’t Plethora currently defending Carmen?


Nikki the Sapphired Book Dragon (sapphireddragon) | 1360 comments She was but and as Carmen has been knocked off her broom as is not currently reading, Plethora ha diverted from her defence to attack and then will go back to finish her defence. Carmen won’t read again till she has had her defence completed. Have I misunderstood a rule somewhere l. Sorry not used to running the announcements


message 45: by Shannon (new)

Shannon (countessmom) | 4087 comments You can’t just give up on an announced play. There was a similar discussion in the Captains, I thought asked by Deanna, about giving up Chaser Chains.


Nikki the Sapphired Book Dragon (sapphireddragon) | 1360 comments Apologies. Deanna’s asleep and I am out and about trying to organise plays on my phone I will get Plethora to revert to her defence
