    Play Politics (for real this time.)
    Draw two action cards. Look at the top two of the agenda deck.


    @Elvenshae @Brody @Mojo_Jojo @Preda @MrBlarney to play the secondary if you wish.

  • BrodyBrody Cabot CoveRegistered User regular
    I will use the Politics Secondary for real this time.

    -1 token (3/3/1), +2 action cards, discard once I've seen what draws.

  • Mojo_JojoMojo_Jojo A lemon squeezed in the salty fist of Poseidon Registered User regular
    Pass on secondary

    Pass on the Politics secondary.

    I guess action is on me, but it seems like there's some action cards to be distributed and agenda cards to be peeked at so I might need to hold off on the accelerator for a bit?

    Yeah, I think it's probably worth hanging on for that to happen.

    Play the action card Industrial Initiative.

    Industrial Initiative: Action- Gain 1 trade good for every planet you control.


    Thanks, I actually had missed that.

    Crap, sorry....

    I typed that out incorrectly. That card should read "for every industrial plane you control".

    Giving myself another demerit :(

  • BrodyBrody Cabot CoveRegistered User regular
    @MrBody Its all good

    @Preda If you are still willing to give me 2 Commodities for 1, I'd really appreciate it.

    Cards dealt. @Hedgethorn chooses new speaker

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    I'm inclined to make myself the speaker, unless someone wants to offer me something for it.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    If cards are out, even if we're waiting on the Agenda cards to be replaced, I guess I should be able to take my action?

    Activate the Tar'mann system. (TP 3 --> 2)
    Move in 2 Cruisers, 1 Destroyer, and 2 Infantry from the L1z1x Home System.
    Land 2 Infantry on Tar'mann.


    Action on @Mojo_Jojo.

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    My action is completed; agenda and action cards taken care of. Go ahead and proceed taking turns.
    Make Arborec the speaker.

    Fire the trade cannons! (Play trade strategy card)
    +3 trade goods
    Commodities restored
    Presenting offers for commodity refreshes as follows:


    @MrBlarney - Free refresh!
    @Elvenshae - Two trade goods or your ceasefire note or political secret note or trade agreement note (Note this is immediate and therefore binding)
    @Hedgethorn - One trade good or your racial promissory note or political secret note (Note this is immediate and therefore binding)
    @Brody - One trade good or your ceasefire note or political secret note or trade agreement noteor your racial promissory note
    @Preda - One trade good or political secret note or trade agreement noteor your racial promissory note

    Non-immediate deals are to be completed during the first round of the agenda phase at the latest.

    Let me know which option you're taking when/if you agree to the refresh. Remember you can always just spend a strategy token to refresh

    One trade good paid at agenda phase since we're not neighbours for me.

  • BrodyBrody Cabot CoveRegistered User regular
    I will provide my cease fire note during the agenda phase.

  • ElvenshaeElvenshae Registered User regular
    @Mojo_Jojo

    How about one commodity now, and one on the next time we refresh?

    Also, I'm not sure how Trade Agreement would work in this case - wouldn't it trigger immediately?

    @Elvenshae I presumed we could control the sequencing of that as part of the exchange so that it doesn't trigger. Let's check though @MrBody can we confirm that if somebody gives me their trade agreement note in exchange for a refresh that it doesn't have to immediately fire?

    And no, I'd need both upfront I'm afraid.

    @Brody I have your ceasefire note. Can't give it out again...

    Give Jol-Nar one trade good.
    After commodities refresh, they go to @Elvenshae and I get my trade agreement card back.

  • BrodyBrody Cabot CoveRegistered User regular
    My bad.

    During the Agenda Phase, I will provide Jol-Nar one Political Secret.

    Refresh Commodities.


    @Preda I believe we have to wait for things to go back to my turn before we can trade commodities. Assuming you are still willing to trade.

  • BrodyBrody Cabot CoveRegistered User regular
    @Mojo_Jojo @Elvenshae , MrBody can confirm/deny, but the rules clarification states that "Promissory notes are not mandatory unless otherwise specified." And since it doesn't say you have to do it, only that replenishing is the trigger, assumably you could hold onto it for a while.

    MrBlarney - Free refresh!

    I appreciate the sentiment, but know that if my commodities get refreshed, they're almost certainly going to immediately go to Elvenshae, since the Creuss hold the L1z1x Trade Agreement note. As long as you are aware what will happen, I care not whether or not they get refreshed.

    What would you say to an allocation of, say, some votes in lieu of commodities?

    @Elvenshae No, thanks. Any time I'd want them you'd be under heavy pressure to break the deal.

    The Trade Agreement timing...I'm not sure? I don't see how the situation would ever come up though. Unless you want to refresh now and keep all your commodities yet give away your trade note for later?

    I guess I don't get the question.

    The timing question is if he's giving me his trade agreement card for a free refresh does that just mean the refresh triggers the card giving me the trade goods.

    I think it's fine as the binding deal seems to easily include I give the refresh, he gives the card and I don't use the card right now

    In that case, I'll just buy my own Trade refresh.

    Pay 1 strategy token to refresh commodities. I now have 4 commodities, and am interested in trading them.

    No sense in debating this out extensively. I'll take the refresh so I can have better future opportunities.

    So that's everybody refreshing. I get a trade good from hedgethorn's. And Elvenshae is paying a strategy token for it.

    And I've got a few debts to call in in the agenda phase

    I make it @Elvenshae 's action (and to flag if the trade agreement cards are getting played to claim trade goods)

    That was exactly the question! :)

    And, yes - cashing in my Trade Agreement promissory notes immediately upon their respective owners refreshing (L1z1x, @MrBlarney, and Arborec, @Hedgethorn).

    @Brody, I propose a 2 commodities for 2 commodities swap, effective immediately.
    @MrBlarney, what do you say to an exchange of mutual Cease Fire notes? Make the Saudor Entente a little more permanent.

    @Elvensahe @MrBody Letnev <-> Creuss Trading two commodities for two commodities.

    @Preda I'll still trade you a TG for a commodity or two if you need the TG, but if you'd rather hold on to them, thats fine.

    A more absolute border security might be nice, but I'm not really feeling the need for it right now. I kind of want to keep my options flexible still, unless you can throw in some additional incentives?

    chirisigtext.png
  • ElvenshaeElvenshae Registered User regular
    @MrBlarney How about I throw in a commodity?
