    Nothing good, so let's score again.
    I already sent the bonus choice to @Ketar so @Daemonis can go with his score event.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    In hindsight, I would have been better off just Scoring on my turn. You're my rival for those tech bases, and I we would have scored with you not having an event to play. Plus the whole "not having to pay a victory point" thing.

    I was looking at my first tech and thinking it was too strong to ever pass up the chance to use AP during my turn.

    Will draw card when I get back from getting my stitches out!

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Select Thoth

    Hybrid draw is Captain Yvgeny, only 2 AP so only 2 Martian influence removed

    @preda to wrap up

  • PredaPreda Registered User regular
    What a mess...No card play. Let's go on with the score. The belt is the bonus area again...
    Should be:
    - 14 points for earth,
    -9 points for OPA,
    - 12 points for ProtoGen
    - 7 points for mars.
    Good score!
    @MrBody for refresh and control.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Rocinante control isn't very valuable when the previous owner leaves it parked on the far end of the solar system :(

    @MrBody OPA gets an extra point from second place on ceres, Un get the extra point from Ceres being mineral.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Righto. Protogen still in last place with Rocinante control.

    Can't update right now. But the cards have been updated on the board. Everyone gets a replacement fleet on their home orbital. Tech IIs unlocked.

    @Daemonis

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    So it seems everyone figured out the trick to scoring: rather than scoring where you then shifting your influence to follow where it's going, you score the areas you aren't early on so the system you're strong in is scored last for the most points.

  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    Score
    @Phyphor

  • PredaPreda Registered User regular
    @Phyphor used his event last score, and has nothing to play now. @MrBody , who's next, instead has still a card and the rocinante. Also remember that everyone has an extra fleet in their home base.

    Interesting.
    Not sure how that gels with the final scoring phase.

    Weird card. How often is someone other than Mars going to have Mars orbital control?

  • PredaPreda Registered User regular
    Not often, but you can still put an influence on a base and have an almost assured second place...

  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    Use event, place diplomat on Mariner Valley

    Or be UN, put a diplomat and force Mars to lose an action to reinforce it...
