Founding Fathers Forum Game: A republic, if you can keep it.


#469

Yes, thank you.


#470

Are you done @Cuthbert? I thought you posted that above. If so we are waiting on @Panzeh I believe.


#471

Jefferson will spend 1 IP to make a speech.

Jefferson will spend 1 IP to fund a newspaper

Jefferson will spend 1 IP to try to get support.


#472

Yes, I’m done, sorry, forgot we could do everything at once.


#473

Jefferson attempts to make a speech in New Jersey, trying to win over its Fedalist leaning citizens. Sadly, he badly misjudged the room, and attempted to stress the importance of free trade to a tariff loving crowd. Jefferson was ridiculed in the local papers and chased out of town. (Jefferson rolled a one on his speech).

Jefferson parlayed his mistreatment by the “devil’s of New Jersey” into additional support for the Democratic-Republican cause in Virginia (Jefferson rolled a 3 to whip up support).

Finally, Jefferson started to publish a newspaper in Carolina, the Raleigh Evening Mail.

@Ironsight, you are up next.

After @Ironsight, we will bid for the final initiative, starting with @Brooski.


#474

John Quincy Adams decides to make an important speech (using my only action card) at Boston Common railing against the fake news being published in several liberal newspapers. He gains influence from this well received speech that allows him to enlist donors to fund The Atlantic Patriot newspaper, founded by his father (place a Conservative party cube), in the hope of garnering further public support for the Federalists in the future.

No other actions so over to you @Brooski to start the bidding.


#475

I bid TEH ZERO.

@Ironsight


#476

I believe @Panzeh in next?

Edit - Nope, @Cuthbert is next dummy.


#477

Indeed. @Panzeh has one faction influence available to bid.


#478

Oh wait, @Cuthbert is after @Brooski!


#479

I will bid one Influence.


#480

Now it’s @Panzeh’s bid but with only 1 cube he can’t bid. Aaron Burr will use his 2 IP for my faction bid.


#481

This post not valid until Panzeh has a chance to determine whether he will play cards to gain IP and bid.

@Ironsight wins the auction, as @Navaronegun has no possible way to get to 3 influence with only 1IP and 1 card in hand.

I’ll send Ironsight his card now. @Ironsight, what action, if any, will you take?


#482

Sorry, no action.


#483

Before we move forward, @Panzeh needs to have an opportunity to bid. He may be able to play cards to gain influence. If he chooses not to bid, @Ironsight’s bid will stand.


#484

My bad. I forgot about cards that could be played. Apologies to @Panzeh.


#485

No bid


#486

Alright. I’ll send a card over to @Ironsight

We move to the Issues phase. Any business before the first issue is revealed @Navaronegun?


#487

Appoint my able son, John Quincy Adams (@Ironsight) as Secretary of the Treasury. We need to increase our income. Much danger is on the horizon. Propose a Tariff III. @CF_Kane


#488

Tariff III is passed by Treasury and the Congress. It is a difficulty 4 issue that provides +1 popularity. If resolved, it increases Revenue by 10 and provides 1IP to the Conservative Party leader.

@Brooski is up first to vote.
