Where are all the melee players?! C'mon, I have 5 melee challenges out (from over 3 years ago) and of like to play them out
Dear players who play alternate accounts - please show some spine and only play me with your highest ranked account, eh? I'm tired of losing to your lower ELO accounts and taking extra losses that way

"Fantasy is true, of course. It isn't factual but it is true. Children know that. Adults know it too, and that is precisely why many of them are afraid of fantasy. They know that its truth challenges, even threatens, all that is false, all that is phony, unnecessary, and trivial in the life they have let themselves be forced into living. They are afraid of dragons, because they are afraid of freedom."
~ Ursula K. Le Guin, The Language of the Night: Essays on Fantasy and Science Fiction
First! Read the "Common newbie mistakes to avoid" behind the "Rules" link (top left)
Second! Use two windows, one with the "Spell Reference" info, the other with the battle -- toggle between
Third! Go read MadEroll's tips for playing this game. He's right on target.
Fourth! The default targets are generally correct, but not always what you think.
Fifth - Remove Enchantment **defaults to the opponent** don't be me and die >11 times because you're a spaz!
Sixth - when summoning a goblin (and another goblin exists) tell your gobbie to attack the other one (don't be me and lose your gobbie without taking out the other one)!
Seventh - in turn 4, after confusion, tell the potential monster to attack the opponent's monster!
Eighth - Challenge me if I don't already have 20 games on (friendly to learn - ladder to climb)
Ninth - when casting perm amnesia, be sure you have a defense ready if you will force your opponent to cast perm amnesia back at you
