Republic of Rome forum game II


#402

@rho21 - Valerius tries to attract a knight, spending no talents.

That’s all for this initiative.


#403

Valerius rolls a 6 and succeeds.

Auction for the next initiative starts with the @scottagibson.


#404

We look terribly ‘up a creek without a paddle’ or ‘in deep doo-doo’ or ‘in big trouble’ or … well, yeah. Another active war ends us, yeah? Need to go all in on one of them. Probably for the next two turns.


#405

Yeah. At the end of the combat phase, if you haven’t got back down to 3 active wars.


#406

Who do we want to get these last two initiatives? I’m not bidding anyway — I only have EO money — but I would get one if no one else bids. I didn’t take any in the last round I think.

So, @rho21 No bid.


#407

ISTM that basically, if you don’t fight / can’t fight the first Punic in the first round, you’re screwed.


#408

We could get two more wars this turn.


#409

@Knightsaber is the only other player with any money to bid.


#410

I think only @Knightsaber and @scottagibson have personal treasury talents this round, so you should probably just split the initiatives between you.


#411

Makes sense. Over to you @Knightsaber, either pass on this one and bid on the next, or vice versa.

@rho21, going into class, so my initiative will be to try for a knight with no bribe.


#412

I’ll bid 1 from Fulvius’ pocket, he doesn’t want it anyway. @rho21


#413

Yuo get a hand card for your troubles. @Knightsaber: what else?


#414

@rho21 Junius will spend his 3T on attempting to attract a knight.

Edit: I meant 3, I keep thinking I spent 4. I didn’t.


#415

A roll of 3 means he is successful.

I’m heading home from work now; I’ll be thinking about what to write about the card I just drew for the final initiative. It’s not great news, I’m afraid.


#416

It’s a fookin active war. Fookin Rome.


#417

We’ll get out of the early republic one of these games.


#418

Hey, the last game finished right at the start of the middle republic.


#419

This may be one of those games you don’t win so much as experience.


#420

If this ends right when I finally mostly grasp how it works, I demand to be in the next game.


#421

Sounds like someone drew the second Punic war
