    Yeah, so, due to timing in this game being dumb:
    @ketar gets first 'after a system is activated' ability
    This can be used on the Gravity Drive Tech which no-one would not use if they needed it
    Then I go next and decline to play Ceasefire.
    Then @ketar can AC on the same trigger

    So if @ketar doesn't want to use that AC he doesn't have to :/

    It doesn't matter - you're going to play Imperial and win as soon as MrBody and Lykouragh are done, unless someone has an action card that forces you to spend a tactics or strategy token.

    @Lykouragh, loading your Infantry will require you to be slightly over your Fleet Pool limit. At most, after the movement step of the tactical action, you can have 2 Infantry loaded: 5 Fighters and 2 Infantry would be supported by your Carrier and Space Dock, with 2 of your Fighter IIs being unsupported and filling your recently-acquired fourth counter in Fleet Pool. In order to perform the invasion with 3 Infantry, you must scuttle one ship; otherwise, you may only load and land 2 Infantry. Please provide a revision to your orders so that combat can proceed.

    jeez that was close.

    Tap Druaa and New Albion for 4 plus Sarween makes 5, build 2 cruisers and 2 ground forces. 4 fighters living on the carrier, 3 on the spacedock, 2 ground forces on Druaa and 1 on Maaluuk, and the system contains 3 cruisers and 1 carrier..... so I think I'm ok on capacity this time.

    @discrider

    Thanks for playing, everyone. It was pretty interesting to get back into the swing of hosting Twilight Imperium games again. Fourth Edition definitely rolls along smoother than Third Edition did. Although there were some bumps with figuring out how to deal with transactions and how to set up the Agenda Phase, I'm pretty happy with how everything went. I still need to get better about remembering combat modifiers, but I made far fewer of them in this game than any of my previous TI3e games due to the streamlined tech system. I'm not sure yet if I'll host another TI4e game right away, or if I'll host something else - I'm tempted to finish up my hosting materials for Argent: The Consortium to try that game first. But I'm in a bit of crunch mode at work right now, so it might be a couple weeks before I get back on the hosting train regardless. You'll know when signups are up when I post in the PbP Gaming Index thread.

    I'll be happy to answer questions about the game and field comments and suggestions on how to improve the hosting and game flow in the meantime. I'll hold off on mentioning too much about the game outright for now, just to let players and spectators start off some discussion. I will mention that at the end of the game that there were four cards left in the Action Card deck, one of which was the last Sabotage.

    I didn't get to play 'Fire Team'. :(
    Really lucky to get 'Spark a Rebellion' as a SO as first pick.

    And also really lucky with the 5VP turn especially after @MrBody got Diplomacy after I had picked Imperial.

    Again apologies to @Ketar for getting Prommisory notes after race selection.
    Also still don't like the round-Robin timing on AC play. It doesn't seem fair to lock people out of playing ACs on a particular trigger based on our players playing ACs.
    But overall, this version seems far less 'gotcha' than third. Which is good!
    (Mainly due to the AC deck being stronger and less swingy)

    Also apologies to @Phyphor
    It seemed like that last round was "kingmakers gonna kingmake" which isn't fun to be on the losing side of.

    I think last round a similar exchange could have been done where @Ketar trades my ceasefire to the active player and then to @MrBody to prevent my invasion of his home planet.

    Not sure how you get around last round teaming up on a winner actually.

    Oh geez...oh dear...oh geez oh dear

    For some reason I thought Muaat had the techs to score the diversify research objective.

    I...could have stopped him by playing a card to take away one of his tactics tokens.

    Although all that would have done is push the game to end in the status phase instead. I could have scored up to 2 more VP but otherwise still wouldn't have won.

    I totally forgot about Assault Cannon eliminating a dread before I could blow it up. The one two punch that made it possible was running out of tactics tokens to respond to Muaat clearing a way to my homeworld, thanks to someone stealing the leadership card away from me.

    One change to the actions cards I'm not crazy about: changing In the Silence of Space so that it doesn't matter if the destination system has any enemy ships in it. That makes it way too powerful in my opinion. Getting that and a flank speed card is such a massive game changer.

    Ha!
    If you'd taken a token, I would've activated my home system, and dumped another 6 infantry on it, with my War Suns.
    And then Passed (after a wasted Imperial).
    I would've then hoped to buy a Tech when that came around to win in Status phase.

    But I would've been last in the order then.
    So Phyphor or Jakobagger would have won I think.

    You could perhaps have spent I on tokens @MrBody
    Or attacked me.
    I don't know where the In the Silence of Space ACs went

    I don't really think that you do. You should set things up so that you are well-equipped to take things down once you're in a position to claim victory. Once you get to 7 VP, all eyes start to point to you. A surprise turn like yours can make it so that the other players don't have enough time to react to your sprint to the finish.

    That's what I thought you were planning on doing when you selected Construction over Imperial. Play "Insubordination" in hopes of delaying out Imperial before Technology and Leadership, then hope for fireworks to take Winnu out of the running. So it goes sometimes.

    Naalu held "In the Silence of Space" at the end of the game. (There's only one in the deck, where there were three in TI3e.)

    I can rather understand not wanting to sacrifice your own advancement to let Phyphor win though.

    Actually, I was also worried @MrBody had a Flank Speed. As he had light-wave deflector.
    I had one, Ketar had another, which left two unaccounted for?

    Yeah I had both Silence and Flank, I was actually in a position to win last round if I hadn't fuckin' lost a home planet.

    First off, good game discrider. And thank you @MrBlarney for running it.

    I had two Flank Speeds. That was the other reason I didn't care about spending one to try to bait you into playing the Ceasefire.

    @MrBlarney Why are players not allowed to PM each other/discuss the game outside of the play thread? I assume there's some past history from previous games here or at another forum, but I'm curious as to what issues outside discussion causes. Being able to pull someone into another room, or just far enough from the table that other players can't listen in, is an integral part of the TI experience imo. There's definitely something lost when no private discussion is possible.
