    (I think my only chance is throwing myself on the mercy of the SO deck, and I can't do that without strategy counters; that said, Naalu took the best one just then so I don't know what I can get :/)

    Activate the Beta wormhole next to the Gravity Rift.
    Move one cruiser from Arnor/Lor and one cruiser +fighter from Moll Primus to the Beta Wormhole System.


    @discrider for any reaction / retreat, then @MrBlarney for combat. Both cruisers will get an Ambush roll.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    Ambush occurs before I can announce any retreat, and I've got nowhere to go, so..

    I think you could hang out in the gravity rift if you wanted.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    That would still require an AC, which would likely still come after the Ambush.

    That is unless you're playing an AC or not Ambushing :winky:

    Other than the action cards I've had in this game and the last, I don't really know what's in the deck. I seem to recall some card that cancels an attack, so I'm just making sure nothing like that is in the works.

    @Hedgethorn This may help. https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/157402/twilight-imperium-4th-edition-action-card-overview
    List of all the action cards in the deck, for perusal.

    Well, the standard one, Skilled Retreat, triggers off the start of a round of combat, which can be the same as the start of combat trigger of your Ambush.
    As you're attacking, your ability or first AC goes off before any of mine if they have the same trigger, so I wouldn't be able to play that until after your Ambush.

    I don't know if there's any others.

    Round 6 - Battle at Beta Wormhole

    Pre-combat effects

    Mentak has 2 Cruiser IIs and 1 Fighter
    Winnu has 1 Cruiser

    Mentak uses racial ability "Ambush" to make two rolls with their Cruisers before the first combat round.

    Geth roll 2d10t6 for Mentak Ambush

    Mentak Ambush:
    2d10t6 2 [2d10t6=8, 9]

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Mentak scores 2 hits, destroying the Winnu Cruiser. Combat resolves in favor of Mentak.

    Action moves to @Preda.

    Mentak gains one TG from Salvage Operations. Use Salvage Operations and exhaust Tar'Mann spend one TG to produce a new cruiser in the Beta wormhole. (I think that's how that power works.)

    It does, but you have no cruisers left to build.

    Cruisers are 2R though, and Sarween only works on a unit's production.

    As much as another PDS would look pretty on my planets, I think I have to Pass
    PDS: Good if you have lots of I and not much else. And your neighbour isn't only amassing forces in his home system.
    Then perhaps you can exert power by blowing stuff up as its built/extorting, without needing R.

    Pass on construction secondary.

    Also, I edited my orders from the end of my turn to spend a TG for the cruiser instead of exhausting Tar'Mann, since apparently Sarween Tools doesn't combo with Salvage Ops.

    Barely caught myself in the middle of building something that would have frozen mah ships in place yet again.

    You moved the wormhole away from your PDS though :(
    I mean someone has to use your wormholes as portable PDS dispensers, and it doesn't look like me at this point.

    Yeah I would have preferred infantry II but those were the only 2 useful ones I could grab this round (dread II isn't too useful for Creuss).

  • Mojo_JojoMojo_Jojo Registered User regular
    That's the only one I have the prereqs for so utility doesn't really come into it
