Dune: Imperium forum game

Nope. VPs are checked in the recall stage.

So no play from @newbrof ? About to drive home, will draw the three new cards and do my third agent at that point.

I draw my cards from above:

the world that we named the book and game after; a thing that stabs you in the back; and the guys who try to illegally get spice past customs

I will do my move if @newbrof has nothing on his turn.

Technically @newbrof should reveal if no move

I believe he is just saying that he will take his turn later.

Oh I was thinking he was saying … “later!” Like peace out, dudes.
Anyway, I have drawn my cards so I can try to think.

I thought the same at first!

Also, if y’all want to run this one back for a rematch, I’m game.

yes, sorry.

I play dune the dessert planet and move an agent to secure contracts for 3 sol.

over to @Brooski

see you later aligator

I checked your next 3 cards, they were Spice must flow, Dune and a Dagger.

Sweet. I have an Intrigue card that I thought was worthless, but actually turns out to be useful on the last play.

Play Infiltrate: “Enemy Agents don’t block your next Agent at board spaces this turn.”

Send agent to Secure Contracts and get 3 coins so I have 7 total.

Over to @Ginger_Yellow

I play Spice Hunter and visit Hardy Warriors.
I pay one water
I gain two troops which go into the conflict
I gain one influence with the Fremen

I play Arrakis Recruiter and move to Arrakeen. I draw a card and @Ginger_Yellow gets a sol. I put the 2 trops into conflict.

I play intrigue Rapid Mobilisation and move all my troops into conflict, I have 11 troops in the conflict.

over to @brooski I wanted to play that intrigue last round, but a gun thopter killed 1 troop of mine and I was short of attack points, it was only good for a tie

I reveal Imperial Spy, Diplomacy, Schpice Schmugglers, Dagger, and 2x Convincing Arguments. That’s worth 7 Persuasion, +2 for High Council seat, gives me 9. I buy The Spice Must Flow and gain 1 VP.

I play the Intrigue card CHOAM Shares which allows me to pay 7 coins to get 1 VP. I should be at 11.

My strength in the combat is 4 (for the troops) + 3 (on my cards) = 7.

Over to @Ginger_Yellow

yeah this game can turn on individual moves – I wouldn’t have been able to afford the extra VP if someone hadn’t gone to Carthag this turn.

I assume that @Dave_Perkins has Corner the Market which will be worth an additional 2VP.

Oh, and I didn’t list it, but the card I used to go to Secure Contracts and get 3 coins was DTDP.

I reveal:

I add one to my combat strength for a total of 7

@Dave_Perkins aynthing to add, intrigues before we move to combat…?

I don’t think he can intrigue before combat, as he has no turns left. Also, he’s not in the conflict, so can’t use combat intrigues either.

true, ok. I don’t buy anything, I reveal a dagger and a spice hunter for 2 attack and a spice.

Combat Phase

I am at 24 Attack, Ginger_yellow is at 7 and Brooski is at 7…

Anyone can play intrigues now. If relevant…

I have no intrigue cards left, so nothing from me.

I have no alliances, my downfall this game, so I cannot play the combat intrigue card I have
