    I should have the arborec trade agreement note on my board

    Spend five trade goods and claim Negotiate Trade Routes

    And let's remember the debts to be cashed in when we reach the agenda round:
    Preda: you owe me a trade good for having a free commodity refresh.
    Brody: you owe me your political secret note for a free commodity refresh.

    I'm happy to add 1:1 commodity exchanges to either of those (I've got four to move).

    Also my racial promissory note will be back up for sale.

    Found this podcast discussing Twilight Imperium topics. I thought it was pretty interesting.

    I especially love the episode entirely about dumping on the Yin!

    It's interesting to hear some pretty different points of view on this. I agree with them on the diplomacy card effectively have two distinct uses though, and it being really unlikely you'll get to both lock people out and refresh planets and it being super annoying that the secondary is better

    That said: All of them keep calling the Federation of Sol the Federation of Soul. Maybe this is an in joke for them but it's pretty irritating.

    Edit: Their inability to grasp how to play the Yin is baffling. I wonder if they're being deliberately obtuse

    Most people think it's meant to be short for "Solar" so they pronounce it that way. More common than people who know it's for the Roman god pronounced "Saul".

    It's space, it's Sol - ergo, it's the word for our sun, which is pronounced with a long O, like the Spanish sol or the French soleil.

    Pronounced "saul" in that context.

    That podcast just pointed out something I think we've been screwing up. Or at least something I'd not noticed and has a pretty important impact that makes the construction secondary quite a bit worse

    The construction secondary is to take a strategy token and place it on the board in the system where you build your PDS/space dock. So you're blocking the system from any of your own ship movements and further activations

    Oh, damn. So it does.

    I'm wondering if you can do it in a system that you've already activated?

    Weirdly you can (even though it seems obvious that you can't given how the rules generally work)

    23.3
    After the active player resolves the primary ability of the
    “Construction” strategy card, each other player, beginning
    with the player to the left of the active player and proceeding
    clockwise, may place one command token from his strategy
    pool in any system. If he already has a command token in
    that system, the spent token is returned to his reinforcements

    instead. Then, he places either one PDS or one space dock on a
    planet he controls in that system.

    No claim. Add one counter each to Tactics and Stategic, since that's what's next.

    I hadn't been screwing it up. It's one reason why I didn't bother trying to reinforce Mecatol Rex last turn, since I couldn't activate it and send things there. Other people might have, though.

    Yeah, it's why I took Construction during this round of play: the potential activation of the Bereg-Lirta IV system via the Construction secondary was causing me planning issues in Round 2.

    @MrBody

    Just noticed a mistake in my units the map: the Cruiser that is in Quann should instead be in Oucen'n/Rarron. (I moved the cruiser from Quann to Corneeo/Resculon, but you seem to have moved the cruiser from Oucen'n/Rarron instead).

    So, Quann should have a Carrier + Dreadnought, and Oucen'n/Rarron should have a Cruiser + Destroyer.

    Also, y'all - just an advisory, but work is sucking balls this week and most of next. I will probably be slow to respond to things. Apologies in advance.

    I confirm 1 tactic and 1 Strategy for T1/F4/S2.
    Also discard "Intercept- Play when your opponent declares a retreat during combat. They cannot retreat that round." due to hand limit.

    @MrBody That makes it time for agendas!

    Vote totals (given my counting track record, somebody may want to check these)
    MrBlarney / L1Z1X 10
    Elvenshae / Creuss 13
    Mojo / Jol Narr 13 (can't vote less than 2)
    Hedgethorn / Arborec 14
    Brody / Letnev 8
    Preda / Winnu 12

    And agendas mean trading! So make offers for my promissory note

    Preda are you happy to do 2:2 commodities on top of giving me the one you owe me this round?

    I'm interested, but not so happy to. If @Hedgethorn is interested, I prefear to excange with him.
    On the other side, depending on the agenda, I'm willing to sell either my votes or my abstention.

    I think there aren't many of us actually holding any commodities due to Creuss managing to hoover up three sets during that last trade phase

    Only me, you and Hedgethorn. Witch is why I prefear to trade with him. You're so much ahead that I prefear to not give you extra resources. But I will surely excange it with you if he doesn't. On the other hand, specially if you can't excange your commodities and have them for bribes, I have MUCH to offer on an agenda vote...

    Hmm. I may be wrong but I don't think Hedgethorn has any despite what his player board shows. Creuss had and used his trade agreement note this round

    I'll pay a commodity to the first two players who give me six or more votes on this.

    Exchange two commodities for three of Preda's (two from the deal we agreed plus the debt from the earlier refresh)

    Hmm, so out of the deck of fifty Agendas, fifteen are "Elect Player" (30%). Among those fifteen, nine are strictly positive for the elected player, five are mostly positive, and one is strictly negative. So this agenda's probably gonna be good for something later in the game. I dunno how much I feel like gambling on getting this one.

    Hey, @Mojo_Jojo, you want my votes for your racial promissory note? I'm not gonna give six votes for just one commodity.

    @MrBlarney Are you sure you want to help Mojo get further into the lead?

    How about I buy your votes to elect me for this one.

    @Hedgethorn Are you interested in selling your votes to me, as well?
