Bonusses for hitting the black knights, the flag, etc., I can understand - but why do you get a bonus for hitting a bird?

Oh, they're carrying the coconuts. Carry on, then.

Why are the enemy and white knight standing so close to each other without doing something about it?

"Wait, wait, here comes a catapulted stone! We'll just let it decide who is right...."

Why did my white knight get all suicidal and start standing right on the freaking keep?

Well, he's dead now. Great find crunchy.

Crunchland, I love you. This is going to ruin the rest of my day, but I love you. I'm sending this to several people I know right now.

I played all 20 rounds and it never registered any of my scores. Do I have a defective intarweb?

yhbc, are you suggesting coconuts migrate?

Great link crunchland! Again. You're so boring.

...The childhood memories of my native Ballerburg came flooding back
as I played this; the damaged timber and rubble, scattering about,
while the anguished cries of royal sentries were drowned by the shrill whine of soaring artillery!

Those have to be the DRUNKEST guards I've ever seen...

"Psst! Hey, white knight, go sneak into the enemy's castle and stand on the highest parapet between the trebuchet and the keep! I gotta surprise for you!"

Worst thing is, there were three of those dummies in my army. What did my king do, conscript the county retards?

Well, no matter. I made short work of them!

Reminds me of the greatest game in the history of the known universe -- TANK WARS by Kenny Morse. We spent hours killin' each other over beer in college with this game.

No, I never liked Scorched Earth -- it was excessively complicated. Tank Wars was complex enough to give you serious smackdown options without being outright baroque.

I respectfully disagree, having been brought to literally floor-rolling fits of laughter during three-way and four-way Scorched Earth battles with the same folks I enjoyed YArtillery Duel with. It's important to keep in mind that depth was not the point of SE -- it is and always will be all about comedy value.

Well, I was going to try and get something done this evening. So much for that. Thanks, crunchland. And KnitWit, that one's great, too!
