    My ships haven't been corrected for my bad turn; the destroyer in Cruess needs to move to Lor / Anor, and the fighter in Lor / Anor needs to move to Creuss. Thanks!

    Build one carrier and three ground troops (total cost 3 +1+1 -1 for sarween tools) (only three troops as I've hit the production limit of 4)

    @Mojo_Jojo , Nar has a resource value of 2, which means that the Space Dock has a maximum Production of 4 units. So you'll have to give up 1 Infantry from the build or choose to build something else. (The other planet in your home system is Jar, by the way.)

    Well spotted. I had in my head it was production+3 for some reason. I suppose I'll waste half a resource on the ground troop that never was

    Technology primary action!

    I will research the Antimass Deflectors technology.


    @MrBlarney @Mojo_Jojo @Hedgethorn @Brody @Preda for the secondary.

    Spending one strategy token to take the secondary

    Using my racial power to take the primary instead (and therefore not spend any resources)

    Yeah, I was hoping someone would give you a reason to spend that token before I took the primary. :)

    Yeah timing with the strategy cards is an important factor: to both get what you want and to deny others.

    Protip: a lot of people got action cards that say "Action-..." on them. That means that playing it takes up your action turn. Sometimes you can use that to stall even if you have no interest in the card effect. Very useful to wait out other players then go after they've passed or exhausted planets. (it's why the Yssaril race ability was so broken)

    Yup. Technology strategy card is over. Back to your regular action turn.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    There's been some questions about the "I spend 3 tokens" objective.

    All non-combat objectives are fulfilled during the Status Phase (combat objectives are claimed instantly). For ones where you have to spend stuff (tokens, resources, influence, trade goods), you pay that cost when you claim it during the Status Phase. Stuff you spend during your action turns that round do not count. It's a separate cost.

  • BrodyBrody The Watch The First ShoreRegistered User regular
    Oh, so that objective is spending three tokens to buy the VP.

    Yep. TI3 used the same wording and I've read game reports from people that understandably assumed you just had to spend those things during the round which involved lots of book keeping

    Oh. That makes more sense, I guess - and it way more expensive!

    Aha!

    Activate the Quann system.
    Move 1 cruiser from Nestphar to Quann.
    Open negotiations with @Mojo_Jojo.
    I'd be interested in your Trade Agreement promissory note.
    I'd be willing to give you either my Ceasefire or my Trade Agreement note in return. (Rules only allow giving one note per transaction.)
    Last time you suggested I'd need to sweeten the deal, but I'm not sure what else you might want (or what I could give you) in return.

  • Mojo_JojoMojo_Jojo But do you really believe him? Registered User regular
    No deal

    3 for 4 goods isn't a good trade for me. And the one note limit means you can't do much else to make it better for me. Next turn we'll still almost certainly be adjacent though so we can do a 3 for 3

    @MrBlarney

    Dreadnoughts only cost 4 now. You have 1 resource and 2 production capacity left if you want to spend it.

    (the new term for GF is "infantry". Helps new players who are going by the sheets)

    I'll just go ahead to keep things moving.

    Activate the L1z1x home system. (TP 2 --> 1)
    Exhaust Bereg (3R), Lirta IV (2R), +1R from Sarween Tools to produce 1 carrier (3R), 1 cruiser (2R), and 2 fighters (1R).


    Brody's turn once Preda's is clarified.

    We can go ahead. I don't think Preda's 1 extra resource in his home system is going to change anyone's orders.

    Use Construction Card to place 1 Space Dock on Wren Terra
    Place 1 PDS on Starpoint.


    I believe it goes to @Mojo_Jojo to use the Construction Secondary.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    We can just ping everyone at once when it comes to strategy secondaries. Everyone reserves the right to wait to see what the players previous to them do before they make their decision, but if you don't care the option is always there to state your order early.
