    @Inquisitor

    These are our 19th and 20th cards, so Propaganda will be somewhere in the next six

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Oh man a lot of different directions to go in with this current event card, geeze.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    I think this is the card that put 26July in a hole last game.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    After hemming and hawing over what the gov might do with access to the event, I am just going to:

    Take the event.

    Government is now ineligible. Remove both 26July Guerillas from Oriente.

    @admanb for next card and next eligible

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    I'm just gonna rally those back on my action. Are you sure you wouldn't rather hit the Syndicate?

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    That means you rally instead of taking the event or another action.

    This has been a brutal sequence for senor batista.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Operation plus Special Activity:

    March

    Camaguey Province to Oriente: All 5 Guerrillas
    Las Villas to Camaguey: 1 Guerrilla
    Las Villas to Matanzas: 3 Guerrillas

    Subvert

    Oriente bringing the province to Neutral and gaining two resources

    Total expenditure for the turn 1 resource

    @A Half Eaten Oreo for event or lim op

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Mr Batista we have some contacts in the US media, and for the fair price of 10 resources we can make sure they embarrass the Revolutionaries.

    @Hedgethorn , really pay 2 resources now for 6 at propaganda.

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    Sorry, @A Half Eaten Oreo, what's the offer? You want me to pay you 10 resources? (Noting I only have 8 at present as is...)

    Given that after propaganda it'll cost me 4 resources per action, you're asking me to give you 10 resources in exchange for one additional action. That's insane; I'm not funding two casinos so I can do one extra train.

    I'd give you 4 resources to take the event -- that'd net me three future actions in exchange for giving you four actions.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Yeah, government really operates on a different resource scale. I felt starved at 20 resources as the government last game. This game I have like 5 resources and i’m all “the world is my oyster!”

    I just didn't know how to price the event. If you pay me 4 for it, your giving me 4 resources to gain 16 (8 now 8 at propaganda) right? Or did I misread it? anything less that 7 seems like just free money for the Gov no?

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    I feel like there's not price point where it doesn't massively benefit one of us.

    I'll instead take the other side of the event. Everyone gets 2 resources. I get:

    Geth, roll 1d6 for Syndicate resources.

    Syndicate resources:
    1d6 2 [1d6=2]

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Well poopy, I hate you Geth.

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    The key is that the government pays way more for actions than everybody else. All of your actions cost 1 (except for construct); right now all my actions cost 3 resources and will cost 4 after the next propaganda. Too late now though.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    I hope everyone remember the charity of the Syndicate :)

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    The argument is:

    He gives you 4 resources: that is 4 non construct actions. He gets 12 resources: that is 3 actions for him next campaign.

    Though there is always the other half of the event and you get a die roll of resources 3.5 on average, without the government getting anything. Of course I am biased for that one because I also get two resources.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Yay the syndicate is kind and generous!

    (That die roll is rough, Geth is a jerk.)

    Yeah I get it in costing it on actions instead of resources (tho the action to take the event should count there). 4-6 Was probably the sweet point, I didn't think about it much and figured since you get your 8 back automatically so anything less than 8 is just a free roll.

    @admanb

    Since I apparently can’t math can I have marched 2 guerillas from Las Villas to Camaguey Province? If it’s too late I understand.

    That's fine with me. I was wondering about your plan of pushing yourself to right below the auto-win. :P

    My plan was to be really, really salty at myself for failing at counting.

    No surprise there. Someone should probably stop the Directorio from winning.

    @Hedgethorn

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Gah prop round timing whyyyy!!!

    Should be pretty easy to stop my win, I really need the prop to hit last round ideally.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Yeah both factions should be able to stop a DR win here. Someone needs to start taking our bases! We’ve done our part.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Yeah, moving 1 piece into one of several places stops my win. I needed the prop round to give me another window to act to hope to get the win. But hey that means we get more game now.

    @A Half Eaten Oreo I could seriously impede Directorio's progress, preventing the instant-win now and slowing him down for the next propaganda card, but it would require laundering a cash marker into a free limited operation. Any chance you would donate a cash marker for the cause?

    2.3.6 Launder. Whenever a 1st or 2nd Eligible Faction pays Resources to execute an Operation (including a Limited Operation, 2.3.5) but executes no Special Activity, it may remove a Cash marker that it owns (4.5.2) to immediately execute an additional, free, Limited Operation of any type except Construct (3.3.5). Alternatively, a different Faction may remove its own Cash marker to enable the 1st or 2nd Eligible Faction to execute such a free Operation. A Faction may only benefit from 1 such Cash marker per card.

    I feel DR is the hardest for me to oppose. Costs me 3 resources and a SA to lower his score by 1.

    is the plan to Sweep to 10 cubes in Camaguey then gun down DR with my Cash? As long as you don't take control of La Habana to skim from my beautiful properties you can use my cash to shoot down some Rebel Scum.

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    Wiping out Camaguey would indeed be my plan.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Rude

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    To expand slightly: keep in mind letting him gain firm control of Camaguey gives him a Province to get support and win with.

    I mean, you totally should stop me from winning but make sure you don’t get the government too much is all I’m saying.

    Oh def, but it’s a 1 pop province. And I have a much easier time messing with mt. government than DR.

    With Oreo's blessing, then...

    Sweep three four troops from Camaguey City into Camaguey province. Then activate all 3 Directorio guerrillas there.
    Launder one of Oreo's cash tokens (he chooses which one).
    Assault in Camaguey province, wiping out all three guerrillas and both bases.

    Resources = 5.
    @admanb for a Limited Op followed by Propaganda.
    Edited the number of troops to make the Assault work.
