It's not totally inconceivable that you'd beat me, Graham.  Usually I try to "go small" which has a better chance of succeeding in hex Oust which I usually play.  In square Oust, you can drop from small to zero more easily. 

Anyway, good luck   :)

No worries. It's a very common beginner error. On a live play site like iggc, a beginner will make a kill and then just sit there not realizing it's still his turn.

Blunders are costly in Oust. For beginners, it's frequently a game of least worst blunders.

Early annihilation can also happen to a more advanced player who becomes complacent about safety.

Normally I'd reset your move after a blunder, but we didn't have a lot invested into it at this early stage, and I wanted to demonstrate how quickly the game can end.

@ Bill

Strategery :) I'm hoping my tiny dragon will grow and consume everything around it. Tiny dragons are vulnerable though, especially in square Oust, so it may not work.
