I knew it!
Dang, I got all excited when I saw somebody posted here, thinking maybe they had a strategy.
Trouble is nobody plays PowerDuel, so I never get practice. When I host it on my server, I basically have to have people, because bots don't cut it and if people don't see other people they won't join. It's a tricky situation. Plus, I never claimed to be the ultimate duelist even back in the day when I was known to kick butt and take names.
That said, I did get some of my old skills back in my last game!
