Thanks for the detailed write up, I appreciate you taking the time to share you thoughts. Both the criticism and the kudos are happily accepted as they will help me make better things going forward (and to bug fix this after the "jam" is over). I'm especially appreciative that you took the time to comment on a game that is not cut from the same chord that you would normally play. Thanks.
On another note, I know the battles aren't balanced very well, this is something that I have been struggling with. I hope to eventually come up with a methodology that works for me, and will provide more of a challenge without hitting the frustration level for a player.
Anyway, thank you again! I really appreciate the feedback!
