    Is it Phyphor or me? I'm confused with ordering.

    Yeah current initiative is
    Phyphor
    Daemonis
    Preda
    MrBody

    Because Preda chose not to play a card but instead used a card's AP, each person in initiative order (whose faction -can- play the card) gets to now choose whether they want to play or keep Preda's not-played card.

    Then you get your turn.

    Oh, right, initiative counts from the 1st place, not from the player whose turn it is. Got it now.

    Turn order goes from me to mars to UN to OPA and never changes.

    Initiative is who gets first dibs on playing the event for any card someone chooses to use for action points. Choosing to play the event is free (unless you want to bank the card for later for 1 CP), but puts you at the bottom of initiative and everyone else up one. Basically there's zero reason not to take it if you're last on initiative.

    The starting initiative order is the reverse of the turn order.

    Yeah, the non-intuitive bit is the initiative order does not care whose turn it actually is.

    Also that second 0 space of yours should be available right out of the gate if that matters.
    The I II and III techs have to wait though.

    It's with last player, so with Phyphor.
    This will change after each time a Scoring phase occurs, to the player with the least CP.

    oh duh. I read the 2nd line as "2 influence on"

    Rocinante is in Tycho orbit.

    I'd like to say that this is super interesting.

    And also curse this thread for making me aware this wasn't just a cheap knock off game but was instead Twilight Struggle with multiplayer.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Well, it is cheap. I think it's only $30-35.

  • Albino BunnyAlbino Bunny Quantronic Dreamgirl Registered User regular
    It's £45 in the UK regretfully. Which is decidedly not cheap :rotate:

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Is that 45 tea kettles, the official currency of UK? Does seem a tad high.

    No... Wasn't the card played by Preda?
    Nup, those aren't tech bases. Preda spent the AP, so you're right (now that I'm on my PC and can see things :P )

    @Preda , Jupiter is not the Rocicante Orbital so you can't Amos it.
    Phyphor moved another Fleet to the Jupiter orbit, so you must pick which 2 fleets of UN, OPA and OPA you are destroying.
    Please revise your Rocinante play.
