Good morning. How shocking that you haven't been forced to surrender even now.
By this point, even I am forced to expect a lot from you.

Not all of the game takes place on the board.
How about taking a little peek on the outside this time around?
They say that if you know your enemy, you need not fight a hundred battles.

The difficulty level depends on you.
The manner in which you've fought until now will greatly influence the difficulty of this game.
