The Muslim counter-attack into BARCELONA ends with a hard-fought Muslim victory.
(that said, @Wellsonian got screwed over by the game royally ... me as the Muslim player got more rallies than I've ever seen in a FOG battle before)

I'll probably kick off Turn 6 -- with Don @chiquichops 's charge on GRANADA -- on the weekend some time.

TURN 5 BATTLES

BATTLE 1
: PORTO @Rico vs @Wellsonian - Muslim Victory

BATTLE 2: SEVILLA - @chiquichops vs @Nelson1812 - Leon Victory

BATTLE 3: BURGOS - @Nelson1812 vs @chiquichops - Castille Victory

BATTLE 4: BARCELONA - (MUSLIM Counter-attack) - @Wellsonian vs @Rico - Muslim Victory

Yeah, the rally every turn didn’t help, but @Rico played a smart game, which really didn’t help!

This is so apt. I'm in Mexico DF now, planning my return trip to Granada after a year away. Will I arrive to receive the keys to the city? Let's hope so.
 
We kick off TURN 6!

The Kingdom of Leon with Don @chiquichops in command makes their decisive attack on GRANADA (if he captures it, he wins the tourney with an unbroken sting of victories) -- Sultan Ibn Bin @Rico has the unenviable task of defending the last Muslim stronghold.

This turn is Don @Nelson1812 's turn to face a Muslim counter-attack.

It's pretty touch and go here at the gates to Granada. It might be that the Leonese steamroller has been stopped at last :(
 
The armies of Don @chiquichops and the Kingdom of Leon have been held at the gates of GRANADA by the valiant Muslim defenders with a 61% - 41% victory.
The battle looked a total loss as the Berber left flank was crushed and the main line infantry was smashed through by the knights of Leon --- but somehow midway through it swung the other way as the knights were isolated, surrounded and routed by Berber light cavalry and camel lancers. Good game, @chiquichops -- neither of us really had any idea how that swing-around happened.

It was a great fight, well done @Rico . I very nearly had it and it just slipped away in a turn or two. Gripping.
Currently, things are looking tricky for Aragon and @Wellsonian as a horrible map bogs down his advance.

Ps. @Rico , that's the first time I've seen your camel lancers get it right, they usually fold or go off on a jolly jaunt into the hills :D

The Marinids defeated Aragón in a bitter fight. A few more turns might have seen a different result. The hilly rough ground suits the Marinid light troops pretty well and the Arab spearmen are definitely up to scratch.
 
That's TURN 6 concluded.

Muslim counter-attack captures BURGOS from Castille and Aragon fails to capture BARCELONA yet again.

Unusual turn with 3 Muslim victories -- those Marinid Berbers were tough armies to beat.

We move on to TURN 7 of Reconquista -- no more Muslim Counter-attacks for last 2 turns.

Don @chiquichops still at the gates of GRANADA, Don @Rico making a push for LISBON ... and Don @Nelson1812 and Don @Wellsonian not really getting out of the starting gates.

We're coming back full circle to the earliest Reconquista armies of 11th Century.
