    Does Mojo_Jojo get to roll for the GF II destroyed after all his ships were destroyed in the delta wormhole?

    Err ... Probably? The unit card says "when destroyed," and the capacity rules say fighters / infantry in excess of capacity are destroyed, so ... ?

    You want to roll it, @Mojo_Jojo ?

    ED: Good catch!

    Don’t worry, there’s certainly nothing wrong with those warriors just resurrected after falling through the Creus Gate. Just place them directly on your homeworld. Ignore the whispers.

    Play Action Card "Unexpected Action", removing my command counter in the Wellon system from the board. (AC 6 --> 5)

    Unexpected Action

    I'm kind of surprised that you did that, Mojo_Jojo. In hindsight, I really should have remembered to tell you not to. The game continues, and rapidly approaches its end.

    Play the primary ability of the (3) Politics Strategy Card, claiming the speaker token and drawing two Action Cards.

    All other players may choose to play or pass on the secondary.

    @Mojo_Jojo On March 3rd when you played on the secondary of Warfare you wrote:

    Hmm. The idea was my homeworld would be empty when that got played.

    Spend my last strategy token to take the secondary
    Build two cruisers, two ground forces and two fighters in Jol nar (cost 5R with the saween tools bonus)
    Exhaust Jol, Nar and Lazar for 4R and spend a TG for the rest

    In his latest update, I think MrBody mistakenly gave you a CC in your strategy pool. If this affected your decision to play a Sabotage because you intended to play on the secondary of Politics, perhaps that is grounds for a take-back. I suppose that would be up to MrBody if Hedgethorn doesn't protest.

    As Preda said, I was looking for an outside chance to make a steal on the Arborec homeworld to increase the chance of one more game round. Maybe I should have played the card on my last turn and announced my plans more openly for better coordination. It's pretty easy to forget to communicate things clearly with the online setup, though.

    Well yes that is not obvious as it relies on you having two specific action cards. It seems more likely you would have pushed further into me to collect tech specialities / planet types

    I'm still way too far out to get the number of tech specialties required to hit up that Stage II objective. Even with Meer under by belt, I'd need to somehow come up with two more tech specialty planets. I can understand your concern regarding planet types, though. If I had the "Mine Rare Metals" secret objective, Abyz-Fria would definitely be a tempting target. But alas, I haven't drawn that objective. And all of this still doesn't clear the fact that I don't have enough to win in the Status Phase, but Hedgethorn does, which is the more pressing concern. You're right that I should have been more forthcoming with my plans, though. Sorry 'bout that.

    Hey, all!

    Forgot to mention I'm on a business trip this week and vacation next, so I might be a bit slow to take my turns. I'll try and get a move in this evening!

    So, with that out of the way, and with Mojo having messed up my other plans ...

    Pass.

    Activate Winnu. Exaust Winnu and Tibah for 5 resources (including sarween tools). Build a Carrier, 2 fighters, 2 GF.

    Then since I'm the only one left.

    Reactor Meltdown- Action: Destroy 1 space dock on a non-homeworld.
    Bereg space dock explodes.
    @MrBlarney want to sabotage it?

    Anyway, I'll Pass afterwards.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Such meaningless violence. Though I would understand that action if Brody had been able to punch through with the Nestphar invasion. No sabotage play

    @MrBody to take us into the Status Phase, I suppose.

    Let's just cut to the chase, shall we? First order of business in the status phase is claiming objectives.

    Arborec claims Revolutionize Warfare for two more VP, giving me 11.

    But, of course, I do that last in turn order. Anyone able to get to 10 before me? Unless I'm mistaken, @Mojo_Jojo is the only one in contention. Also @MrBlarney @Preda @Brody and @Elvenshae to claim objectives.

    Thanks for hosting, MrBody. I can't believe it's simple to manage on your end, but you made it look easy.

  • BrodyBrody The Watch The First ShoreRegistered User regular
    No, I screwed the pooch and didn't have enough infantry. Good game all.

    "The shore does not dream of you." - Blind poet Gallan.
  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Claim "Revolutionize Warfare". (VP 6 --> 8)

    Congrats on the victory, @Hedgethorn. My tempo was off by one round, I should have been more proactive earlier. Still, I feel pretty good about my plays.

    Thanks for hosting, MrBody. It was interesting (and a little confusing) being on both sides of the table through our respective games.

  • HedgethornHedgethorn Associate Professor of Historical Hobby Horses In the Lions' DenRegistered User regular
    I'm surprised how many victory points are tied up in technology. We managed to draw almost all the tech-related objectives, but even so, given that there's already a strong incentive to claim techs to buff up your empire, it seems a bit strange for the game to also shower you with victory points for doing so.
