    As the Minister for Trade, we also denounce the Mentak's protectionist policies and underline that this can only harm their own economy in the long run.

    Confirm this trade

    Assuming Mentak is going to pillage.

    At some point, would either you or me want to clear out the Mentak from that system?

    @MrBody
    I'm sort of concerned you'd look to invade Meer.

    I'm also interested in your racial note, and would be willing to throw an extra TG into the above transaction for it.

    (Edit: This won't happen until their turn, of course, when the trade goes through.)

    Here's the Mentak action:

    The Mentak Coalition: Play the primary ability of the (5) Trade Strategy Card, gaining 3 Trade Goods. (TG 5 --> 8)
    Perform transaction, giving 2 Trade Goods to Naalu in exchange for 3 Commodities. (Mentak TG 8 --> 9; Naalu C 3 --> 0, TG 4 --> 6)
    Perform transaction, receiving 1 Commodity from Creuss. (Mentak TG 9 --> 10; Creuss C 1 --> 0)
    Refresh commodities for Mentak, Naalu, Letnev, and Creuss (Mentak C 0 --> 2, Naalu C 0 --> 3, Letnev C 0 --> 2; Creuss C 0 --> 4)
    Winnu plays Mentak's Trade Agreement promissory note, claiming their commodities. (Mentak C 2 --> 0; Winnu TG 0 --> 2)
    Perform transaction, giving 1 Trade Good to Letnev in exchange for 2 Commodities. (Mentak TG 10 --> 11; Letnev C 2 --> 0, TG 1 --> 2)
    Winnu plays on the secondary (SP 1 --> 0), refreshing their commodities and gaining 3 Trade Goods from Minister of Commerce. (C 0 --> 3, TG 2 --> 5)

    And I think we're ready for N'orr's turn.

    MrBody, I'd still be pretty surprised if Winnu used your Ceasefire if you activated Arinam to clear Mentak out. But if they did, I'd be happy to trade Ceasefires with you afterward.

    Wow. Tried a "live" game for the first time on Tabletop Simulator through the Space Cats Discord group.

    What a mistake. The absolute worst behavior and sportsmanship I've ever seen outside of serious business WH40k tournaments. People throwing fits for pausing to think, then yelling because your hurried move wasn't perfect. People throwing fits and flipping all their cards over. People throwing fits because my end game hail mary play to win meant Player B won instead of Player C. People throwing fits because you not only hadn't memorized the entire action deck, and didn't memorize the number of each card, AND weren't actively counting cards.

    "It's even worse if he didn't know he was kingmaking! You shouldn't even be playing the game then!" Do people realize how ridiculous they sound? The kicker was that it was the closest game I've ever seen. One player at 8 points, Three at 9, and the winner with 10.

    It was 8/8/8/9/9 prior to the last move. I had a double warsun fleet in my home system, and the stage II objective was out to conquer an enemy homeworld and everyone was gunning for it to win the game, which was going to end that round. Both my neighbors' homeworlds were too heavily defended (18 infantry!), but the Saar homeworld 2 spots away was totally empty. I had gravity drive, fleet logistics, and the Unexpected Action card. I did a hail mary play of moving a warsun 3 systems, and on my next turn do a double action of playing the card to remove the token then invade the Saar homeworld. This left "only" a warsun defending my home system. I thought one neighbor could only hit me with a single dreadnought but missed that he had 3 additional cruisers that could reach me so he attacked and took my (Letnev) undefended homeworld then used Fleet Logistics to score off Imperial.

    Apparently this was some huge offense that I didn't just sit in my homeworld, pass, and lose the game. Some neckbeard and a French dude went on a tirade how I ruined the game and shouldn't be playing. I've had less hostile reactions from MAGA hatters after telling them I voted for Hillary.

    Back to forum games...

    I had thought about trying a game on TTS. Maybe I'll give that a miss now

    How long did it take?

    A little under 5 hours.

    I guess it was my mistake because one of the problem dudes was being a dick in Discord chat before the game started. I should have bailed as soon as I saw him in the game rather than commit dealing with him for that long.

    I would upfront ask right before a game starts if it's casual or serious business. If there are any manchild neckbeards present you'll probably get tipped off right there.

    I will say it was a bit refreshing to have a game where 3 tech objectives came up, Jol-Nar wasn't in play, AND everyone was a 2 starting tech race. Although that kind of reinforces the view that tech objectives suck and make it so starting tech is the single most important factor for races. No wonder everyone was even all game.

    I'll also say how NOT FUN it is to have an Xxcha in play with his "pay 1 S token to cancel an action card" racial tech out. It totally quashes some chances for amazing plays. In the future, I'd never play the Politics secondary when that tech is out.

    Wow. Tried a "live" game for the first time on Tabletop Simulator through the Space Cats Discord group.

    What a mistake. The absolute worst behavior and sportsmanship I've ever seen outside of serious business WH40k tournaments. People throwing fits for pausing to think, then yelling because your hurried move wasn't perfect. People throwing fits and flipping all their cards over. People throwing fits because my end game hail mary play to win meant Player B won instead of Player C. People throwing fits because you not only hadn't memorized the entire action deck, and didn't memorize the number of each card, AND weren't actively counting cards.

    "It's even worse if he didn't know he was kingmaking! You shouldn't even be playing the game then!" Do people realize how ridiculous they sound? The kicker was that it was the closest game I've ever seen. One player at 8 points, Three at 9, and the winner with 10.

    It was 8/8/8/9/9 prior to the last move. I had a double warsun fleet in my home system, and the stage II objective was out to conquer an enemy homeworld and everyone was gunning for it to win the game, which was going to end that round. Both my neighbors' homeworlds were too heavily defended (18 infantry!), but the Saar homeworld 2 spots away was totally empty. I had gravity drive, fleet logistics, and the Unexpected Action card. I did a hail mary play of moving a warsun 3 systems, and on my next turn do a double action of playing the card to remove the token then invade the Saar homeworld. This left "only" a warsun defending my home system. I thought one neighbor could only hit me with a single dreadnought but missed that he had 3 additional cruisers that could reach me so he attacked and took my (Letnev) undefended homeworld then used Fleet Logistics to score off Imperial.

    Apparently this was some huge offense that I didn't just sit in my homeworld, pass, and lose the game. Some neckbeard and a French dude went on a tirade how I ruined the game and shouldn't be playing. I've had less hostile reactions from MAGA hatters after telling them I voted for Hillary.

    Back to forum games...

    That sounds awful. If you are only playing to win instead of have fun, why would you signup for such a long game where only one person could win? Makes me appreciate again what a great community we have here.

    Seconded. Sorry for your bum experience, MrBody.
