    If blah is the only player who saw the post, I think the damage is minimal. He might have a slightly better idea of Grunts allegiance, but ehh... the whole thing can probably be wiped by a new destination draw. As far as I can tell, that's the first time anyone interacted with the card that Grunt drew.

    Turn 18: Louanne "Kat" Katraine (Grunt's Ghosts)

    Movement Step: Grunt's Ghosts remains in the Brig.
    Action Step: Play Tactics 2 - Launch Scout, targeting the Destination Deck. The roll is successful, and Grunt's Ghosts draws the top card of the deck, then places it at the bottom of the deck.

    Though Kat remains locked up in the Brig, she still has supporters among the flight teams who still follow her command. A raptor is sent out for scouting, and with the information gained, an alternate direction for the fleet is suggested.



    Turn 19: Lee Adama (Tenek)

    Receive Skills Step: Lee Adama (Tenek) draws 1 Tactics, 2 Piloting, and 2 Leadership cards.

    The Leadership deck is exhausted after the first draw; the discards have been reshuffled into a new deck for Tenek's second draw.

    Current Situation:

    I saw it as well. But I can see "accidentally" disclosing a good destination, to trick me into blind jumping, so I think we still need to check the card.

    I can scout to double check and then blind jump if it's good to go.

    I placed in on the bottom. Didn't like what else the card did.

    It's been bottomed, so no.. you can't check.

  • Professor PhobosProfessor Phobos Registered User regular
    Oh, silly me. Well, the offer stands- I can scout and blind jump, or scout twice, or scout + state of emergency + jump, with an XO, etc.

    Anyway. Space problem.

    Blind jumping now is bad. We need to either clean up space, or draw the Cylon fleet into jumping before you push the button. If you jump now, the cylons will just come back. If, however, we blow both the raiders and the basestar, the CFB will jump in and THEN we can blind to escape.

    Both people with piloting skills are locked up.

    Oh, good thinking. I could hit the Raiders with Pegasus now, and nuke the basestar on my next turn...or vice versa, whatever.

    Let's check that notion... If Adama XO's you and you scout, finding a good destination... lets run around the circle. You play state of emergency and blind jump. I will use my action to repair good vipers... doc - probably demetrius or consolidate power or some other action; Romo - who knows, probably quorum; Phyphor will definitely activate BSB to get pursuit up (75% chance it will go to 'place 2 civs'), Kat and Adama... who knows.

    Then it's your crisis and no matter what happens - the pursuit track will advance. So, all in all - if you state of emergency/blind jump, there's a 75% chance the entire cylon fleet will jump in on us. On my turn, I could command a good viper to AFT, but we'd be losing the civ in port-bow and port-quarter if raiders activate.

    EDIT: not to mention that if Adama's the second Cylon, he could waste a lot of cards attempting the brig check on State of Emergency and THEN he still gets to use his special wherever he ends up. I assume Phyphor, my brother-from-another-assembly-vat drew tactics to either try and grab scout for fuel, or assist in the brig check.

  • Professor PhobosProfessor Phobos Registered User regular
    No, I agree with you. SoE might be worth saving anyway, for now at least.

  • KaneskiKaneski Registered User regular
    Both people with piloting skills are locked up.

    Yep. Sucks, but I think the secret Cylon among you (probably) is still losing more chance to win, than us hampered by lack of pilots. Brig-brinkmanship is an awesome fun game to watch IRL. On here - pretty good too.

    Heh, lets not count our chickens yet. @Tenek still has to XO you. Or me... just realised I can repair vipers and use my ability to 50% clear either sexy Adama or hotshot Kat... me returning to the cylons will also slow down the crisis count to 3 humans to 1 Baltar. I will be disabled on my turn, since I need a super-crisis card to get off resurrection ship, but eh... the point is loyalty and crisis count slowing, not efficiency.

    I'm guessing the consensus is I don't have a better target for my XO than Cain?

    Also, we don't need to farm the Tactics deck anymore. ^_^

    Doc for mission scouting is also good. Cain can Pegasus Main Batteries the 2 raiders on her turn, thus ending the space threat for the foreseeable future. Now that high value cards are in hand and (ostensibly) held by humans, missions are viable.

    Edit: Romo is ok as well... Authorization of Brutal Force is never, ever, a bad thing, though that's a mining expedition rather than a definite benefit. As long as the XO is not on me - because that is a waste.

    Kaneski on
  • Professor PhobosProfessor Phobos Registered User regular
    We should get me to a decent location. Doc's already where he needs to be; I can (probably?) XO him on my turn. I would send me over to Command or the Main Batteries. Who knows, maybe I'll draw Major Victory and we'd have good reason to nuke the basestar on my turn.

    But, honestly, mission scouting is also a good call. Up to you.

  • KaneskiKaneski Registered User regular
    edited October 2013
    And if Doc's first mission is good, he can get us more relevant skill cards by using his main ability.

    Kaneski on
  • TenekTenek Registered User regular
    OK then. With the idea of XOing people who can use two actions:

    Play Ldr 2 - XO on Cottle

    If the scout is good, I'm guessing you'll want to draw Ldr from someone.

    I can help with Fuel and Morale now, if anyone feels like testing a theory. Just be sure you have SP's to burn.

  • KaneskiKaneski Registered User regular
    And surrender the useless-to-doc engineering. Colors shouldn't be mixed (to make spotting cylons easier), so engineering should go to... well... me. You can draw leadership from me. @MrBlarney rule check please: could Doc draw 2 leadership by targeting me with his treatment ability? My response would be 'yes', because I could draw 2 leadership on my turn...

    Still can't let you out this turn because of the crisis count (we need Cain to ease space problem first), but damn... very tempting to XO you, let you get fuel and then out of the brig - even if you are a Cylon, the fuel gain would offset any possible damage you could do later.

    That's fine. If you're still worried I have a good second action, hinted at above. I guess as long as we don't have to bury Lion's Head or such because of fuel it's not too critical to use it right now.

    Just keep in mind I can't use it until either a) I get out of the Brig b) I don't play an XO on my turn or c) someone XO's me.

    Uh... not really JUST distance... there are a few useful missions. Rebel Basestar, for example, is uber-sweet, and if I use my OPG - I can activate it twice with the supercrisis cards. Considering there are 3 people (myself, Cain and Kat) that have pretty 'meh' OPGs, the rebel basestar would be a much better use of them.

    There are other useful mission cards that aren't distance. Your judgement on usefulness - for example, blowing up the resurrection hub at this point is pretty pointless, since we have a revealed Cylon... at best it would be insurance against future super-crisis. Things that remove heavy raiders/basestars/centurions - also not terribly useful. They are good, but currently not a big threat. I can't remember the rest of the missions, but short answer - not just distance.

    EDIT: take that back. I believe there's a mission that removes a basestar from the game. That thing would TOTALLY arrest most space threats for the rest of the game.

    So in case anyone's changed their mind: Should I stay in here or try to bust out?

  • KaneskiKaneski Registered User regular
    At this point... I'm inclined to trust you. I'm still worried about the crisis count & the threats associated with cylon activations, but it's after your turn, and the worst thing you can do for the next 6-7 turns is spike a crisis or two... the help provided almost matches that already, so...

    Odds are good a useful mission lies on top now.

Cutfang activates the Tactical Plot location, drawing the top card of the Mission deck and placing it at the bottom of the Mission deck. Cutfang activates the Tactical Plot location for his second action, drawing the top card of the Mission deck and placing it at the bottom of the Mission deck.

    Tenek, will you use your general ability to activate the Brig location?

    There are only 8 missions? 2 give distance and I can find a couple that aren't useful, so the rest should be ok. @MrBlarney any objection to me posting the list of missions for discussion?

    edited October 2013
    I don't think it'll be a problem since the list of Missions has been posted elsewhere on the 'net already and it's a small enough set of cards that discussion is sensible. Of course, Cutfang can't discuss which Missions he did or did not see using specifics.

    Mission List. Like I said... a couple in there aren't useful, so I think if we blind a mission, we'll still get something decent. What's awesome is that 6/8 missions, including all the good ones for us have Tactics as a positive color. The ones that don't - have leadership so we can quite safely mine Demetrius for Ye olde Purples and Greens.

    Won't be able to post until I get out of class. Any ideas? I'm thinking of launching a good old scout after moving a place where I can be EOed nicely.

  • TenekTenek Registered User regular
    Mm. Main Batteries, maybe - actually, you could activate them instead and use the scout as your first action from an XO. Command is probably good for someone, though, one activation would let us clear 5:00 at least.
