    Assuming knowledge that there was only one mattered in this context then I'd say deal a new card to each

    Even though I would like to keep Bunker, I don't mind getting a redraw if it helps to resolve the situation. Of course, Sabotages might get drawn which could make things messier. Will I need to reroll my Bombardment if Arborec's Bunker isn't in play? I'm pretty keen on making sure they can't grow more troops, especially since Parley is being played against me.

    I almost certainly wouldn't have invaded Mecatol in the first place without Bunker and Parlay in my hand. My goal was to land troops, withstand a bombardment and that'd be that.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Let's go with this. L1z1x will get a redraw, and the option to reroll their bombardment if they wish. Arborec hand will stand.

    Sound good?

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Meh, that's fine. I'll accept the Bombardment roll as is, since I do end up worse off on average with a re-roll. I just have to hope that the new card I draw is better than Bunker.

    I'm guessing ships from separate players in the same system are required to shoot at each other?

    Oops! Totally missed that it was my turn!

    Activate Lazar / Sakulag.

    Move in the Hil Colish, which swings by Arnor to pick up a ground troop and brings two fighters (+1 move from Gravity drive); the Dreadnought from the gate sector; and the Dreadnought from Creuss (which brings 1 more fighter).


    Begin the Space Cannon Attack step.

    I have two cannons that bear: Creuss and Arnor. Plasma scoring gives me one additional roll. Target is 6, thanks to the Antimass Deflectors on the Jol-Nar ships. Any card plays, @Mojo_Jojo ?

    Experimental Battlestation - Play when another player moves ships into a system containing or adjacent to one of your space docks. Fire Space Cannon 5 (x3) against ships in that system.

    Assuming it goes unsabotaged that's four dice with plasma scoring

    Not sure that plasma scoring applies to an Action Card.
    The card would have to define a unit that uses Space Cannon before Plasma Scoring works.

    It should apply. If you go by the actual text of Experimental Battlestation, the player using it chooses one of their space docks in or adjacent to the system being targeted, and then that space dock uses Space Cannon.

    It's not easy to read, but that card is near the top left in this pic: https://imgur.com/RHPm9cL
