- Christopher Salem - 14/08/2018 23:48I've found this game more challenging when played on the NES than the PC, as the AI in the NES version moves swifter, and the D-pad not as precise as a keyboard. Still, this is one game that if you've enjoyed it on one platform, you'll want to own it for your other platforms. A third way to win not mentioned in the manual, is to reduce your opponent to one creature, and then imprison that creature if it can be intimidated off a power point (power points are proof against magic). It is possible, though extremely rare, to stalemate a game.
