    Well, this agenda certainly blows. We blame the Muaat, as usual.

    Well. Unlike some people at least we want to watch the galaxy burn.

    Tzu be praised if the next one is equally bad.

    We think we would actually prefer to lose a ship with every new technology than exhaust all of our planets this round. With any luck someone might use an action card to rid us of the law entirely should it prove sufficiently bothersome. Muaat prefers exhausting planets, from the sound of it. Any other opinions?

    Sometimes our strengths lie beneath the surface - far beneath, in some cases - but I'm sure there's more to Ketar than meets the eye!

    Sure. What was it that the Confusing Legal Text AC did? :P
    I thought that was the 'Ditch this Agenda' AC

    No, Confusing Legal Text makes someone else the elected target if the person playing it was elected for a bad agenda. But MrBlarney did an analysis of the agendas that target players in the other TI4 game thread, and only 1 was truly negative from what I recall. If so, it's an absurdly useless card to hang on to.

    It definitely wouldn't help with this agenda.

    edit: Confusing Legal Text
    When you are elected as the outcome of an agenda: Choose 1 player. That player is the elected player instead.

    Like, I think exhausting our point leaders limited planets and the merchant cats quadrant is pretty good, but so is forcing people to build low cost ships. I could go for either.

  • KetarKetar Lacks the basic intelligence required for pretty much everythingRegistered User regular
    We would prefer the For side of this agenda, but will attempt to mitigate the Against side if chosen.

    Play Trade Rider
    After an agenda is revealed: You cannot vote on this agenda. Predict aloud an outcome of this agenda. If your prediction is correct, gain 5 trade goods.

    Predict Against.

    Any other riders before Phyphor kicks off the voting?

    We... shall express no opinion as everybody has decided the space cats are an insignificant threat and that only we matter. We can maybe score exactly two stage 2 objectives and have pretty much lost already

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Nah no cards

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Once jakobagger chimes in, you're all free to start voting. Here's a reminder of what's at stake:

    Anti-Intellectual Revolution (Law)
    For: After a player researches a technology, he must destroy 1 of his non-fighter ships.
    Against: At the start of the next strategy phase, each player chooses and exhausts 1 planet for each technology he owns.

    Voting Order
    The L1z1x Mindnet: Trade Rider - Against; Up to 4 votes if Trade Rider is Sabotaged.
    The Winnu: Up to 18 votes; must be in even increments
    The Emirates of Hacan: Up to 14 votes
    The Naalu Collective: Up to 8 votes
    Sardakk N'orr: Up to 9 votes
    The Embers of Muaat: Up to 11 votes; Speaker

    Okay, it's been long enough waiting for jakobagger. I'll rule L1z1x's card as going through, no other cards played, and it's time to vote. @Phyphor is up first.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Actually looking at it, the N'orr would prefer it to pass. I'm not terribly interested in any more tech and while there are a couple races that would get punished more for Against, they also have more planets so the exhaust would be equally punishing.

  • jakobaggerjakobagger LO THY DREAD EMPIRE CHAOS IS RESTORED Registered User regular
    Sorry, didn't actually realize I was the one we were waiting for. . .derp.

    I wasn't going to play anything though.

    Scandalous!

    4 votes FOR

    @discrider

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    Sure.
    Being of the least tech, I'm highly inclined to just vote against.
    What do you say @jakobagger @Lykouragh @Phyphor ?
    What is it worth to you all to not have your planets exhausted?

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    We would be looking at upwards of ten TG cumulatively to not vote against.
    @MrBody and @Ketar might want to be notified of this extortion I suppose, but I don't expect either of them to foot the bill.

  • KetarKetar Lacks the basic intelligence required for pretty much everythingRegistered User regular
    If everyone cared enough to pay that much, wouldn't they have just voted?

    I mean, that was in total as I understood it. Not from each of us.

    Still not quite interested though.

    Fair enough.
    Vote 5 Against, resolve the tie Against (assuming there is a tie)

    Maybe, maybe not.
    It could also have been a collective action problem where everyone leaves voting to everyone else.

    @Lykouragh perhaps.
    Otherwise @MrBlarney for the next Agenda.
