    Hmmm...there were 14 cards left in the deck too.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    And I have to say, the Protogen protomolecule ability seems crap. I can't imagine how often a situation where it's worth it would ever come up.

    I guess that balances out their tech I being great.

    Right now :) Clean up Io, for example.

    It also wipes out my influence except for 1. So it would just put me at 1 to 0 against you as opposed to 3 to 3 now. Plus I'm forfeiting a regular turn and losing 1 CP. It would be so much better to use my first tech to simply use 1 AP to replace your diplomat with my own cube.

    Well, you spend 3 APs and remove 5+ opponents' APs. And they have to spend more to gain at least something from the planet. You lose CP but do not give an event to anyone. Not a gamebreaking ability but cool.

    Does he decide which influence is removed or me?

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Oh right. When both are present, the UN gets to decide. @Phyphor to change last order if he wishes? UN will probably just remove the normal influence then.

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Hmm that makes my ability much less useful. Well remove from Ganymede instead

    @MrBody the faction mat still shows me with Rocinante control, but shouldn't it be Phypor's?

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    oops. fixed

  • PredaPreda Registered User regular
    Ok, without rocinante isn't worth to spend 2 points to score now, so Blockade of Earth for AP. 1AP of open Warfare to destroy OPA fleet on Saturn. 1 Influence in Eurasia, 1 influence on Thot.

    @Phyphor is the only one that could play the event.

    I'm not seeing a way you're getting influence to Ceres? No fleet there. @Phyphor

    Sorry, away for the week end...

    Play DeGraaf to put an influence in Eurasia and Africa both. I should be 1 influence short, so I'l take it from Mariner Valley.

    Should be @Daemonis turn, but I've already played the only stored event left so does Kenzo work? @MrBody @Phyphor

    I suppose the score maximizing move would be to eliminate the mars ship in saturn orbit
