    @38thDoe, how are you paying for your Infantry build? Integrated Economy allows you to produce after gaining control of a planet, but since it's not a unit that is performing the production, Sarween Tools does not apply. Please revise your orders.

    Is there any way Jol-nar or Sol doesn't win by next turn? It looks like the possibilities are:

    1. Jol-nar has a secret objective that they can complete, they end at the end of next round.
    2. Jol-nar doesn't have a secret objective, they go to 9. Sol gets 2 VP from Galvanize, they go to 8 (or 9) and have speaker, so they can pick Imperial to score another public and win.

    What's the protocol for other factions here? Do we interfere or is that king making? Or is inaction also kingmaking? I have other objectives i can complete, so i hope 1 doesn't happen just so i can pad my score (I can score 1 or 2 at the end of the round if the game isn't over by then). I have the potential to interfere with Sol a little bit, but even if i do, that doesn't necessarily mean good things for me, so why do it?

    Since N'orr doesn't have any counters in Strategy Pool, there's no play available on the secondary. Action moves to @El Skid. Status update will be posted in a little bit.

    2. Jol-nar doesn't have a secret objective, they go to 9. Sol gets 2 VP from Galvanize, they go to 8 (or 9) and have speaker, so they can pick Imperial to score another public and win.

    What's the protocol for other factions here? Do we interfere or is that king making? Or is inaction also kingmaking?

I have the potential to interfere with Sol a little bit, but even if i do, that doesn't necessarily mean good things for me, so why do it?

    There's not really any chance of anyone but Sol or Jol-Nar winning at this point, no. My only chance was to retake my home system this round.

    As far as kingmaking, I've not really seen a standard. I think my group usually tries to just maximize your own score. If it comes down to an action that will help one or the other (Sol or Jol-Nar, in this instance), while also helping you the same, then it comes down to how they dealt with you in game (sneak attacks, backstabs, protected, etc.). But again, not really a set standard.

    Edit: In theory, if Jol-Nar wasn't sandbagging a SO, then there is the chance that someone takes a planet in their home system, Sol loses control of Mecatol (there is an agenda that could help; I don't recall if we've hit it yet), and someone takes control of the Sol home system. If all 4 of those happened, then yes, the game would continue.

    Best case scenario, i can get to 8 VP at the end of this round. But then my priority for scoring on the next round, if the 2 VP objective is favorable me, is garbage. There is no way i could score ahead of jol-nar, even if i can slow down Sol.

    This is all likely moot anyways, as im pretty sure Jolnar can complete a secret objective.

    Yup. Precisely. Hence my preemptive Pass. Nothing I can do will matter anymore. So I'll just sit back and wait for the next game, if there is one.

    Hey Sol, this is your plant friend not playing an AC that removes one of your tactics counters so you can go ahead and claim that 2 VP. You probably had a sabotage anyways but this way i can pretend to be magnanimous.

    PASS

    Agenda Effects
    Minister of Industry - Held by N'orr. When the owner of this card places a space dock in a system, their units in that system may use their Production abilities.

    Order of Play
    The Ghosts of Creuss (@Brody): (1) Leadership
    Federation of Sol (Lykouragh): (3) Politics
    Sardakk N'orr (El Skid): (4) Construction
    The Emirates of Hacan (mindflare77): (6) Warfare
    Universities of Jol-Nar (38thDoe): (7) Technology
    The Arborec (Zombie Hero): (8) Imperial

    All players may now each claim up to one Public Objective and one Secret Objective, excepting Hacan, who may not claim a Public Objective. In addition, Arborec may use their "Mitosis" ability and Creuss may use their "Wormhole Generator" technology. Because of the current scores (and to build suspense), claims will be done in player order.
