    Sorry for the lack of presence over the past two days. If there are no other cards to be played at this time, @El Skid may choose his Strategy Card.

    Can't do anything on my end. If you can take one of his home planets with your War Sun fleet he can't score more VP without recapturing it, but I think he might be winning ties right now too, and IR is in the next draw.

    The Nekro Virus play:

    Public Disgrace
    After a player has chosen a Strategy card, play this card to force the player to return that Strategy Card and choose a different one.

    Sabotages?

  • El SkidEl Skid The frozen white northRegistered User regular
    Yep!

    Yssaril will sabotage that one.

    The Nekro Virus abstains.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    I've got nothing. I don't think we can do anything else about the Yssaril, since all of the other potential Strategy Card shifters (both Action Card and Political Card) are in the discard piles.

    chirisigtext.png
  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    Then the Yssaril wins. GG.
    May I never see an AC again.

    Is this officially over, then? I'd love to write about my thoughts and such on the game, but I don't want to do anything prematurely if anyone has something they still want to try...

    If we get official confirmation from all players, then I'll do a formal wrap-up post. Otherwise, @jakobagger has the next Strategy Card choice.

  • jakobaggerjakobagger LO THY DREAD EMPIRE CHAOS IS RESTORED Registered User regular
    I am officially fine with calling the game here, but if not I guess I'm choosing Warfare.

    If no-one has any other AC to prevent the strategy choice,
    or any AC to prevent the primary ability of the strategy from being activated,
    and if these don't exist in the deck ( @MrBlarney who checked this round),
    or perhaps if there's not a way of picking a PC that fixes this (give me 2 points perhaps?),
    then the Yssaril wins as soon as he activates their strategy.

    If Yssaril is up on the tie-breaker mechanics against Muaat, I concede.

  • faintpremonitionfaintpremonition Registered User regular
    There are a few PCs that can give and take VPs, but unless someone jumps up and down saying I have one of those, I am still willing to concede!

  • El SkidEl Skid The frozen white northRegistered User regular
    I can also block the primary/secondary of Assembly this round, barring sabotages :)

    Just waiting on @Kirindal for his opinion, to make things official.

    chirisigtext.png
  • KirindalKirindal Registered User regular
    The Nekro Virus feels that there is a chance that the Yssaril are bluffing and are willing to call that bluff.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Regardless of whether Yssaril can block the Assembly strategy card, I don't think there's a way to move VPs in a way that Yssaril can't declare victory with his first turn in the Action Phase. But so it goes: I'll select (3) Assembly free up other peoples' options. @jakobagger to declare how he will convert the bonus counters from selection of (6) Warfare II and @faintpremonition to select the next Strategy Card.

    Put all bonus counters into CP.

    The Nekro Virus choose Diplomacy II

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    Then we take Leadership.
    And Play a second Signal Jamming on Sakular - Lazar.
    Sabotages?

    I'm willing to concede nobody will help on this one- can we assume the card goes through?

    I think that's a fair assumption. I'll leave some time in case any other players want to play Action Cards during the phase and post a game state update otherwise in about 24 hours.

    In addition, @jakobagger, I noticed that all of your command counters have already been allocated, so the bonus counters from Warfare II will be converted into Trade Goods instead. Sound good?

    Sure.

  • faintpremonitionfaintpremonition Registered User regular
    I have no AC t play and I can take my first action when the update goes live.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Oh, also... @Kirindal, I need to know how you are converting the Bonus Counter from your Strategy Card selection.

    chirisigtext.png
  • KirindalKirindal Registered User regular
    Converting the Counter to CP.
