    Accept the L1Z1X racial promissory offer
    Exhaust everything to vote for Teq'Ran
    (+13)


    We support Winnu's claim to the dangerous new science project as we are intrigued about the 15% possibility of the planet being transformed into a supermassive bluehole but NIMBY

    (Fyi, the Creuss planet currently has 17 votes and the Winnu 18. It's probably not the best idea to hand bonuses out to the player into the lead. However as I had no overt biters on my offer to buy votes that offer is now null)

    No vote. I refuse to play this petty game. You will all accept me as the new galactic ruler. That is all.

    L1z1x: 5 votes on Sakulag
    Creuss: 12 votes on Sakulag
    Jol-Nar: 13 votes on Tequ'ran
    Arborec: abstain
    Letnev: abstain

    Votes available for second agenda
    Winnu: 9 votes left
    L1z1x: 4 votes left
    Creuss: 0 votes left

    I have to predict, out-loud, the winning vote. I cannot vote on this agenda. If I'm right, everyone places a command counter from their supply on a system with a planet I control.

    (ED: It's an action card.)

    Yes, there are a few similar rider cards.

    I sort of wish I'd saved a vote for this though. I regret my inability to count

    I don't know about anyone else, but losing a command token and giving Mojo a free space dock in exchange for two action cards seems like a poor trade off to me right now. I'm inclined to vote against unless someone gives me additional incentive to vote for this.

    You don't lose a command counter for elvenshae's. It comes from your supply.

    @Hedgethorn

    Yeah - you'd actually "lose" a command token if and only if you didn't have any left in your supply (the same way that, e.g., if you build a PDS when you don't have any in your supply, you instead take one from a planet and build it elsewhere).

    I don't think that's going to be a problem for any of us for awhile ... :D

    No Sabotage.

    I'm inclined to also vote "Against" since I don't really need any more Action Cards and I don't know if I really want to give so much free stuff away. But it's not like my votes count for that much at this point.

    Diplomacy Rider- Play after an agenda is revealed. You cannot vote on this agenda. Predict aloud the outcome of this agenda. If correct, choose 1 system with a planet you control. Each player places a command token from their reserve on that system.

    Construction Rider- Play after an agenda is revealed. You cannot vote this agenda. Predict out loud the outcome of the vote. If your prediction is correct, place 1 space dock from your reinforcements on a planet you control.

  • Mojo_JojoMojo_Jojo Registered User regular
    Yeah, I should have posted the full text of my card really. I'll do that next time.

    Also is it possible to spread bet with multiple rider cards?

  • BrodyBrody The Watch The First ShoreRegistered User regular
    I will be voting for. I'd rather not throw away cards that I had spent tokens to acquire.

    You don't throw away any cards *unless* you vote 'for' AND the majority of votes are 'against.'

    Voting 'against' is guaranteed to be safe. If you vote 'for', you're in a prisoner dilemma and you have to hope everyone else votes along with you.

    ...but you vote last, so you're in the safest spot.
