    For the record, I had predicted For before Hedgethorn played, but could not actually put that in thread until @Ketar had declared whether he wanted to render me mute or not.
    Otherwise there's the potential to force me not to use an AC I'd revealed.

    If Ketar could declare whether he wants to use my Secret early in the day, then I won't have to be non-commital on every AC play or non-play until the timer expires.

    Of course that is difficult with my hand of 8 riders but I persevere.

    The agenda passes For; each player has 1 vote in each agenda.

    The second agenda is revealed from the deck:
    Minister of Industry (Law)
    Elect Player: The elected player gains this card. When the owner of this card places a space dock in a system, his units in that system may use their Production abilities.

    Voting Order
    The Ghosts of Creuss (MrBody): 1 vote
    The Winnu (discrider): 1 vote
    Sardakk N'orr (Preda): 1 vote
    The Mentak Coalition (Hedgethorn): 1 vote
    The Naalu Collective (Mojo_Jojo): 1 vote
    The Barony of Letnev (Ketar): 1 vote

    At least 24 hours will be allocated for discussion, deals, transactions, and Action Card declarations, unless all players collectively call for voting to start before then.

    Though actually, there aren't any more Action Cards that could be played before the start of voting, so it's really just deals and transactions now.

    @discrider If you vote for Letnev, I'll give you your Political Secret back.

    Pretty good deal considering the likelihood of Construction potentially not even getting played again.

    I don't care about this, we can start voting anytime as far as I'm concerned. My vote will probably go to Mojo.

    Hold up @discrider Given the other comments that have been added - and since we were still supposed to be in the discussion period - I'm not really interested in this deal any longer. I don't care enough about this to bribe someone else, and wouldn't be able to win without doing so. So vote for whoever you like.

    @MrBody If Winnu gets Imperial, they win this round unless someone takes their home world early on. Or if nobody takes tech and they don't have the action card that would let them research without tech, but I wouldn't want to count on that.

    If you want me to take Politics as agreed, I will. But I hope you'll either be taking Imperial or have a plan for Winnu if so.

    How do the Winnu reach 10 VP this round? I'm seeing 2 for unit upgrade objective, then 1 for Imperial. Are they guaranteed their remaining secret objective?

    Anyway, they won't get Imperial. I promised retribution. I request you pick anything but Technology.

    Imperial lets them immediately score 1 public objective - they can do either the spend 8 resources or spend 3 tokens (easy after they've played Leadership secondary, still doable even without) for 1 point - score 1 point for MR, and then get the 2 point unit upgrade objective at the end of the round for 10.

    Anyway, they won't get Imperial. I promised retribution. I request you pick anything but Technology.

    :rolls eyes:
    Clearly I deserve retribution for taking out a single destroyer after being denied resources all game, in the face of being further invaded to complete your VPs.

    @MrBody If Winnu gets Imperial, they win this round unless someone takes their home world early on. Or if nobody takes tech and they don't have the action card that would let them research without tech, but I wouldn't want to count on that.

    If you want me to take Politics as agreed, I will. But I hope you'll either be taking Imperial or have a plan for Winnu if so.

    How do the Winnu reach 10 VP this round? I'm seeing 2 for unit upgrade objective, then 1 for Imperial. Are they guaranteed their remaining secret objective?

    Anyway, they won't get Imperial. I promised retribution. I request you pick anything but Technology.

    Imperial lets them immediately score 1 public objective - they can do either the spend 8 resources or spend 3 tokens (easy after they've played Leadership secondary, still doable even without) for 1 point - score 1 point for MR, and then get the 2 point unit upgrade objective at the end of the round for 10.

    I believe 8 resources + a tech = not spending anything on anything else this turn (if I can even do it?)

    Frankly though, having a hard time seeing what I should pick now that you're not taking Politics.

    @Mojo_Jojo would you trade your racial note for the Speaker token?

    You can do it just fine. Even if you couldn't, the 3 tokens point is easy for you as long as Leadership gets played.

    And you could get a point from an SO.

    Again, you were assuming Tech got picked as well.
    Which it would not or should not have, but it sounds like MrBody would have bounced Imperial to someone else while taking Tech.


    Perhaps he was thinking of invading whoever took Imperial between Hedgethorn and Preda?

    There was zero chance of Tech not being picked.

    If Preda or Hedgethorn landed with Imperial, Hedgethorn at least would have been in a position to win this turn, assuming all his SOs are not unachievable.
    Preda may have been able to pull out a double 2 VP PO turn too, but that seems less likely.

    The only way to not get into that situation was to either get Imperial on someone who was not us, or not play Tech.

    If I had Imperial... It would have been touch and go.
    Couldn't complete 8R objective, would've needed to use CCs to defend myself and score MR as well as keeping 3 CCs remaining somehow.
    I probably would've been smashed to pieces.

    Not good for it go to N'orr or Mentak either, frankly.

    I think if you hadn't done that and you were saying you weren't going to, barring the Creuss fleet bearing down on a leader, then Tech wouldn't be picked because it could give whoever had picked Imperial between us a good shot at winning this round.
