    Victory Phase
    Zha723D.gif

    Resources Phase
    Government: 8 (ECs) + 15 (Aid) = 23.
    26July: 1 (bases)
    Directorio: 6 (spaces with pieces)
    Syndicate: 6 (2xopen casinos)

    The Skim: government skims 2 from the Syndicate. No cash to deposit.

    Support Phase
    Shockingly, Government support is less than 18 so Alliance degrades to Reluctant and Aid goes down to 5.

    Civic Action: the government can spend resources to build support in government-controlled spaces with both Troops and Police. 4 resources per shift. @Inquisitor

    Agitation: 26July can spend resources to build opposition in 26July-controlled spaces, but there are none that aren't already at active opp.

    Expat Backing: Directorio will Rally in Camaguey to place a base.

    Redeploy Phase
    After buying Civic Actions the government can move around pieces as directed by the rules. Everything is in a city or with a base so there are no forced moves.

    Reset Phase
    Everyone goes eligible and the one closed casino opens.

    It wouldn't be a COIN game if I weren't regretting my decisions one turn later.

    Right? You obviously should've opened your casino in friendly Mantanzas.

    Should've sent a guerrilla to an EC for +3 resources.

    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!

    You kind of still can with Construct + Profit, but it requires Cash.

    Going to move Sanitago de Cuba to active support for 8 resources.

    Redeploy 1 police from Havana and 1 police from Camaguey City into Las Villas.

    Redploy 2 troops from Las Villas to Santiago de Cuba.

    I think this was all legal @admanb

    Wrestled with this for a while but I think I just need more pieces on the board... Op + Special Activity.

    Rally, spending 3 for
    - 2 guerillas in Camaguey province
    - 1 in Mantanzas
    - 1 in Las Villas

    Subvert Camaguey province, gaining 1 and flipping it neutral.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Well, last on the next card too, so no sense in also passing.

    Time to flush some riff-raff.

    Limited Action: Sweep

    Sweep in target location Santiago de Cuba costing 3 resources.

    Reposition no cubes. However, both 26 July pieces there are now activated.

    That ends this turn

    @admanb for next event card.

    I know I know, I'm just being a fussy britches.

    It's always interesting and stressful (but in a fun way) to play the waning power in these kind of games. Most board games have you ramping up over the course of the affair. At least I know the crumbling of my raw power is mostly inevitable. It's just about getting the most out of what I have while I have it, which is a fun brain burner.

    Syndicate will Rally in Pinar del Rio, Oriente, Havana, Las Villas, and Santiago de Cuba.
    Resources = 9.

    @A Half Eaten Oreo for a Limited Op only.

  • A Half Eaten OreoA Half Eaten Oreo Registered User regular
    Was hoping the Syndicate would be tempted by the permanent ability.

    Rally in Oriente.

    Resources down to 5.

    @admanb for card and eligible.

    I'm pretty sure the next card won't matter for me.

    Terror (I say peaceful demonstrations) in:
    Oriente
    Camaguey (Province)
    La Habana
    Las Villas

    Then a friendly Kidnapping in La Habana, closing the Casino
    Geth, roll 1d6 for Kidnapping.

    Spending 4 Resources and gaining X.

    @Hedgethorn eligible
    @admanb for card.

    Kidnapping:
    1d6 2 [1d6=2]

    It was friendly! We took a tourist out for a scenic tour. He was back before dark, and we only charged 2 Resources for the whole thing.

    Limited operation:

    I feel bad about the number of full turns I've gotten. Come on events with Government in the first slot please.

    @Inquisitor I'd really like that Ambassador Smith event to take place. If I leave you to be first eligible on that card, will you play the event, or do I need to do it myself?

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular

    @Hedgethorn

    I’ll fire the event but keep in mind this turn 26July could fire the event to remove 2 DR/syndicate guerrillas and keep me from being eligible next turn.
