    Or pick an empty planet of theirs, and they actually gain an infantry.

    Thoughts? Bribes?

    I think were good with whatever the big voters vote for.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Is that enough time for opening talks? Here's a reminder of what's at stake:

    Colonial Redistribution (Directive)
    Elect Non-Home Planet Other Than Mecatol Rex: Destroy each unit on the elected planet. Then, the player who controls that planet chooses 1 player with the fewest victory points; that player may place 1 infantry from his reinforcements on the elected planet.

    Voting Order
    The Winnu (discrider): Up to 14 votes
    Universities of Jol-Nar (Ketar): Up to 6 votes
    The Ghosts of Creuss (A Half Eaten Oreo): Up to 5 votes
    Nekro Virus (Phyphor): Cannot vote due to Galactic Threat
    Federation of Sol (MrBody): Up to 17 votes
    The Naalu Collective (38thDoe): Up to 11 votes; Speaker

    @discrider to vote, whenever they're ready.

    I assume I'm voting for one of Phyphor's planets so that MrBody doesn't do the same to one of ours and prevent us from taking MR from him.
    Pretty annoyed I stuffed up and landed my infantry so I have to waste my votes like this but whatever.

    Still need someone to take Sol so that MrBody doesn't win.

    Well they don't have and can't get this stage II objective so I don't think we have that hanging over our heads this turn.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    Actually, I'm probably going to use my votes elsewhere unless @Ketar wants to buy my votes.

    I am not long for this world, I really don't care what happens on these agendas.

    Vote 14 for Corneeq as Sol's remaining space dock resides there

    @MrBody you want to take a stab at bribing Creuss and I for votes? Because otherwise Naalu can throw a few votes at Corneeq as well and outvote you.

  • KetarKetar Come on upstairs we're having a partyRegistered User regular
    Actually, heck with that.

    Abstain

    It's probably six votes that are needed.
    And the next agenda is for/against all Alpha and beta wormholes are conjoined / all wormholes are activated.

    Clearly Corneeq is unexhausted with Sol's remaining two votes on it

    Will abstain for 1 TG. Not sure if you need to bold that for it to count. Unless there is a better offer?

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    (offer) 1 TG to abstain

    Yeah, no.
    If you think you can take out MrBody without my help then go ahead.
    There absolutely is no point conserving the Naalu's votes either.

    Really the only thing we'd consider offering is our Political Secret when the Jol Nar is eliminated.
    We aren't in a position to offer any TG whatsoever.

    Although, really, 1 TG is an insult for sparing Sol's space dock; at -least- force them higher before selling out.

    Meh. I take Construction and either plop a 2nd dock in the system or I plop it in Jord. Six of one half dozen of the other at this point since I'm not going to bother considering strikes to Mecatol anymore.

    So 1 TG is a bargain for "meh" !

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular

    Or I take construction cause TG and denying you a round of production seems good.

    I say, "meh".

    I like how this year they've finally recognised my lack of holiday spirit and allowed me back into the main forums whilst everyone else is asleep.

    Not sure what's going on. Main forum link goes to the holiday hangout, but I can visit the Critical Hit forum just fine with direct links and bookmarks. All bookmarks and post history links to the video game forum have disappeared though.

    But CF has been spared

    Hey, we're back from the end-of-year break. Here's our progress on the first Agenda of the round:

    Colonial Redistribution (Directive)
    Elect Non-Home Planet Other Than Mecatol Rex: Destroy each unit on the elected planet. Then, the player who controls that planet chooses 1 player with the fewest victory points; that player may place 1 infantry from his reinforcements on the elected planet.

    Voting Order
    The Winnu (discrider): 14 votes - Coorneeq
    Universities of Jol-Nar (Ketar): Abstain
    The Ghosts of Creuss (A Half Eaten Oreo): Abstain
    Nekro Virus (Phyphor): Cannot vote due to Galactic Threat
    Federation of Sol (MrBody): 15 votes - Meer
    The Naalu Collective (38thDoe): Up to 11 votes; Speaker

    So the pivot is on the speaker, @38thDoe. The Naalu have an offer from Sol to abstain for 1 TG which can be accepted or counter-offered, or they can ignore the offer and vote a different way.

    Sorry for the delay things have been pretty crazy.

    Abstain for 1 TG.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    In a time of crazy political shenanigans, it's refreshing to finally see someone make the proper vote!

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Vote Outcome
    15 votes Meer (Sol)
    14 votes Coorneeq (Winnu)

    4 Winnu Infantry on Meer are destroyed; @Phyphor may elect to place 1 Infantry on the planet and take control.

    In the meantime, I see no reason not to go on with the second agenda for the Agenda Phase.

    Wormhole Reconstruction (Law)
    For: All systems that contain either an alpha or beta wormhole are adjacent to each other.
    Against: Each player places a command token from his reinforcements in each system that contains a wormhole and 1 or more of his ships.

    Voting Order
    The Winnu (discrider): 0 votes
    Universities of Jol-Nar (Ketar): Up to 6 votes
    The Ghosts of Creuss (A Half Eaten Oreo): Up to 5 votes
    Nekro Virus (Phyphor): Cannot vote due to Galactic Threat
    Federation of Sol (MrBody): Up to 2 votes
    The Naalu Collective (38thDoe): Up to 11 votes; Speaker

    At least 24 hours will be allocated for discussion, deals, transactions, and Action Card declarations, unless all players collectively call for voting to start before then.

    4463rwiq7r47.png
  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Yes I will place an infantry

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    No opinions? No card plays or transactions? Alrighty then. @Ketar, feel free to start things with your vote whenever you'd like.

    Oh yeah i should. Well I don't think naalu, jol nar or cruess would ever pick against so I would predict For

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Votes have already been cast on the agenda, so I don't think I can accept that Galactic Threat prediction.

    Yeah, nah, that's not how this timing works.
    I abstain, @Ketar to revote.

    Unless we want to rectify the timeline further and have 38th consider the un-redacted public information from November from MrBody before their first vote.
    Which we don't.
