Reading a Readme


I recently finished a satisfying game of Victoria as Great Britain, and decided to buy the expansion, Victoria: Revolutions. Being an irredeemably unreconstructed game designer at heart, I followed my usual practice of actually reading the readme.txt that came with it. It included the following memorable line:

- Armies are now resized to maximum strength compared to the amount of manpower a nation really has. (No more -4343 manpower unless a country are truly fucked in the setup.)

I'm not sure I approve of this. That word "are" should be "is".
