    @Inquisitor @Hedgethorn @A Half Eaten Oreo

    Inquisitor has claimed the government but otherwise the factions are up for grabs. Give me your two choices and I'll take whatever's left over.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    I am flexible to play whatever, if people do have strong preferences. But keeping Castro out of power would be rad.

    Perhaps we should let this thread sit a day for signups, in case someone who didn't see your announcement in the board game thread is interested in playing?

    I'm fine with that. I just assume everyone uses the forums like me and pretty much only goes to their bookmarked threads and threads they're @ed in. :P

    Having tanked two European super powers, I'll sit out and watch this game go. Super interested to see it in action as my copy hasn't made it to the table yet.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    No more stalling! Time for faction selection @Hedgethorn @A Half Eaten Oreo

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    I think I grok my actions. I can’t wait to find out how many nuances of rules interactions I’ve overlooked. :D

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    I'd prefer DR or 26July. I think I'd screw up the Syndicate the worst.

    Probably the easiest thing to fuck up as Government is missing the differences in capabilities between Troops and Police.

    I'll happily play any faction, but I'll choose to be the Syndicate unless @admanb would rather have them.

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    There's a user-made player faction aid on BGG that seems quite useful: https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/137174/cuba-libre-player-aids-10

    Go figure I'm first eligible.

    Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see added to the OP.

    One thing I'll note about this COIN vs. Liberty or Death is that while it is a free-for-all, negotiating and temporarily allying with other players is highly recommended. You can even transfer resources at any time!

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    Everybody should transfer a couple resources to the Syndicate. I promise you that my men will comp you at the blackjack table on your next visit.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Directorio will Rally, paying three resources to place 1 guerilla in each of Matanzas, Camaguey, and Oriente.

    Then Subvert in Oriente to gain two resources and shift it to neutral (sorry Oreo but I need that resource farm also plz don't event me kthx).

    @A Half Eaten Oreo for second eligible.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Can we offer our fellow Revolucionarios 2 resources to undo the subversion? Batista is the real enemy after all.

    Will post my Operation soon, making sure I understand what people can do to screw me.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Honeyed words from a fair weather friend.

    Castro will betray you the moment he has the strength to do so. Don’t let him amass power more easily.

    Uhhh yes. Yes you can.

    Directorio will instead choose to take Op only and Rally without Subverting, assuming 26July is serious about the exchange of resources.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Limited Operation: Rally in:

    Las Villas recruiting one Guerrilla.

    Resources down to 9 (or 7 if the DR accept my offer).

    If Castro is willing to offer us the opportunities that our own government won't provide, we'd be fools to say no.

    I should mention now before it becomes a problem that the board will always be a better source of truth about victory conditions than the text of this post. I'll try to update every time but VCs in this game are way messier than LoD.

    I am almost certainly passing for that good good event.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    I'm still feeling out what I should be doing.

    Rally in:
    Camaguey (Province)
    Oriente
    Sierra Madre (here for 4 Guerrilla if I read right)

    Infiltrate in:
    Santiago de Cuba, replacing 1 Police with an underground Guerrilla.

    Down to 4 Resources.

    @admanb for pass :)

    Aww dammit

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Unlike LoD the current card gets played?

    Government's gonna to rob the people blind!

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Well the event isn't worth it if it's not gonna make any difference in eligibility, soooo

    Directorio Rally in four spaces
    - Camaguey province
    - Camaguey city
    - La Habana
    - Matanzas

    Then Subvert Matanzas for 1 resource to end the turn at 2.

    @Inquisitor for the government.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular

    Yep. Only special rule is that when the final propaganda card is revealed you only get limited ops for your last turn.

    There's one propaganda card per 12 cards, but it can be anywhere. If you happen to get two in a row you actually skip one propaganda round!

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Unless I am overlooking something I don’t think I can achieve much that won’t be undone in the propaganda round with a limited action so...

    Pass for 3 resources.

    @Hedgethorn

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    Construct a second casino in Havana. Resources = 9.

    Then @admanb for the Propoganda round. Free drinks for everyone in the slots area.

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    Woah, I entirely missed that Construct places closed casinos. So much for the strategy of a building rush just before the Propoganda card is revealed!
