233 5/27/2018 7:36:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Great writeup! I really enjoyed the game.

If you gents would like another round, I'd be happy to be on board. Hopefully I could give a bit better showing for my faction...
232 5/27/2018 6:32:00 PM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Yes, thanks Michal. Nice and concise.

BTW guys, I'd planned to close this game journal but I'm not sure if it's still accessible once you've done that (and I know you were planning to write this up, Michal). I also somehow contrived to change myself from first player, meaning I no longer have owner privileges, so don't seem to be able to close it anyway. So apologies that it's still active for those who are wanting to tidy up their ACTS accounts.
231 5/27/2018 11:35:00 AM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message Very nice write up! Thanks for sharing.
230 5/27/2018 6:37:00 AM Turn 1 Agiad Message Hi Guys,

finally I have mobilized myself and created the session report from our game:

https://mk20336boardgames.com/2018/05/27/eng-pericles-playing-over-vassal/

Have a nice reading!

Regards,
Michal
229 3/26/2018 6:33:00 AM Turn 1 Agiad Message Brent,
thanks for analysis regarding Military issue. Still, I could have played better :) Never-mind, as you said this is learning exercise :)

All,
it was great game, I learned a lot - and it was fun playing with you guys. I think we created good tandem with Brian, and discussing the strategies with him was great fun.

I am interesting in longer scenarios - 1st and 2nd Peloponnese War. It give completely different dimension - bases, controlled theaters as well as points for being controlling faction. Count me in Brent.

And of course, I remember about Julius Caesar :)

PS. I am fan of Session Reports so you may expect soon some AAR from our game :)
228 3/25/2018 11:55:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Brent, I'd love to do another of this game. Feels like I was just starting to get a better idea of how everything works.

Please let me know when you get the longer one up and going.
227 3/25/2018 11:28:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message I hadn't checked the numbers but I had planned to use the Oracle for 3 honour (my favourite use is removing a key enemy League unit but there's no point at this stage).

So I'm happy to call it there. Thanks so much for the game, guys. I really enjoyed it. I prefer the full scenarios where you have to think about the long game and where economic and geographic bonuses are important (abandoning our bases seemed strange in this scenario and you'd never consider that in the long games, but it made sense here). It's still a fun scenario and has its own , different strategic considerations. It's also obviously a lot easier for PBEM than the 5 and 10 turners.

Having said that I'll probably try to organise one of the 5 turners, probably the 2nd Peloponnesian War, after a bit of a break. It's not as easy a game to PBEM as some others, particularly when it comes to battles, but the slower pace gives a lot of time to really think around the strategy. If any of you are interested I'll give you a heads up when I get around to starting it up.

.....and I think we're due a game of Julius Caesar, Michal :)
226 3/25/2018 11:12:00 AM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Well, I think Athens coming out on top during that last battle was more more by accident than design, but didn't Mark say something like that in the designer notes...something about how history went down way back then?

Thank you for a great game - I'm up for a longer one, though I think I'll get my head handed to me!
225 3/25/2018 9:22:00 AM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message I guess it's up to you guys whether we play this out, but the only non-Rumor issues remaining is an Oracle for Brent, and an Oracle for Michal.

The best-case scenario for Sparta would be if Michal used his Oracle for 3 honor, and Brent didn't. Sparta would still lose by 3 points. Otherwise, the two Oracle issues cancel each other out, and Sparta remains behind by 6 points.

So, I think we can call the game in favor of Athens, with Brent's Demagogues coming out on top. Congratulations to Brent and Scott for a well-played.

And thanks to Michal for a fun game. We had a good time plotting and debating strategy. No worries about the final battle. As Brent said, it was a good learning game, and it provided some drama and suspense to the ending.
224 3/25/2018 6:20:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message As a follow up, I don't know if any of you have played solo with Phormio (which is really good BTW) but manipulating Strategos commitment there has yet another level of strategy to it. Your Phormio city state partner won't commit Strategos to your expedition assemblies, or in defense, until he has resolved all of his issues which require Strategos expenditure. So I will often try to get his issues resolved before I resolve my Military issues, freeing up his Strategos to support my expedition assemblies......if this is done right, you can often commit less Strategos yourself and rely on Phormio to fund your troop movements. It's all about getting the issue sequencing right, which is another really cool challenge of this game in both solo and multiplayer....as the effective Spartan raiding this turn and this last battle in Boeotia demonstrate.
223 3/25/2018 6:07:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Not stupid at all, Michal....it's all a learning exercise.

Yes, the commanding general can move units with his expedition assembly up to the total combined Strategos commitment of his city state....so technically a full Spartan expedition could move 10 units, including the 300. This why the attacking city state reveals both its faction's commitments and moves units before the defenders reveal their commitment.

In another PBEM game I'm playing we're three rounds in and there's been a lot more battle than raiding and some of the players are still having trouble getting their heads around this sequencing....but I think it's very clever, that the attacker has to make a decision about troop movements before knowing how strong the enemy commitment is going to be (as you'd expect for a pre-industrial world where communications are slow). If the situation were different, and we had a possible unresolved Military issue sitting in Sparta or Boeotia, and you didn't know which, moving land units out of Sparta to Boeotia might be a very difficult call.

So much to consider and the opportunity for bluffing and feinting in this game is great. Another interesting strategy I've tried, with partial success is dropping two Military issues in a theatre....the first being a bluff with minimal Strategos commitment to attempt to get the enemy to commit their Strategos prematurely, then a full attacking commitment for the second they've depleted their Strategos resources.
222 3/25/2018 3:34:00 AM Turn 1 Agiad Message Well, I feel terribly STUPID.
I think my mistake cost us War. I was playing based on wrong assumption that I can move units to battle only with MY OWN committed strategos. Of course, when reading the rules later (Brian, thanks for spotting) I could move also units for 4 strategos of Brian...

Well, my bad. Let see how it finishes.

221 3/25/2018 3:14:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Sorry, for the multiple identical messages. Something went screwy when I hit Submit.
220 3/25/2018 3:13:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message That all looks right, Scott. We just have to flip the state ship and return it to stock, but probably not an issue as that may have been the last battle of the war?

Well, that's a turnaround! Could have gone either way but Athena stepped in for her city. We were worried about Sparta taking hostages to win the war (thus the redeployment of our ships to the Hellespont). Even so I thought this was done and dusted for the Spartans but looks like it's going to be very close, particularly with everyone out of Strategos (except maybe the Aristocrats?)

216 3/25/2018 1:29:00 AM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Battle done - Aristocrats pulled a 5 to the Spartan's 2 - differential of 3.

Check my work, please - first time for me to run through the battle.

Eurypontids next, I believe, as Brent pulled the chit for Athenian action.
215 3/24/2018 9:55:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message As it stands right now, Sparta has a total value of 11 points in Boeotia: 4 League units (4 points), 1 base (2 points), 1 Spartan unit (2 points), the 300 units (3 points). The 300 units is worth 3 points because it counts as a Spartan land unit (2 points), and is also a strategos point.

As you mentioned, you can commit up to 5 strategos, and then move in 5 units, which together would be 10 points. By adding in the Athenian State Ship, you get another strategos point. So you would also end up with a total of 11 points.

You can move units from Athens to Boeotia. Or units in other locations, such as Lesbos could move through Athens to get to Boeotia.
214 3/24/2018 7:58:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message If I read it correctly, the Spartans have four League units (4), one Spartan unit (2), one League base (2), and the 300 (1), for a total of 9, with no strategos.

I committed 7 strategos, but I now understand I can only commit a max of 5. Since it is a land battle, can the State Ship be included? If so, that would increase by 1, to 6.

If I move units in there, then my figures would change.

Then, after we calculate everything, we each pull the top card of our battle deck and see what happens.

I earlier asked a question on the movement of units, so I'll wait for that answer.
213 3/24/2018 7:52:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Question: We (Athenians) have a land connection between Athens and Boeotia, which, if I understand correctly, allows us to move some of our land units into the theater. Brent, do we discuss this privately? Am I reading this right? With the 300 there, we'd probably get worked, but I just want to be sure on this, as this is my first battle. I'm reading through the rules to make sure I understand this. Thanks for your patience!
212 3/24/2018 4:55:00 PM Turn 1 Demagogues Message The only addition is that I'll send the state ship in for an extra 1 Strategos
211 3/24/2018 3:56:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message No strategos from me and no from Brent (we have zero).

Brian just made me aware, that in our battle in Boetia I had opportunity to move 6 units, as I could also move 4 units for Brian strategos. My bad...

Scott,
pls uncover strategos, move units and draw a card ... We shall see..
210 3/24/2018 9:50:00 AM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message I don't have any strategos left, so obviously, my strategos commitment is zero.
209 3/24/2018 8:34:00 AM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Aristocrats wrote note for Strategos commitment.

I'm actually traveling today, so I'll be out of contact for about eight hours. Sorry for the delay, guys! If you want to just run it through to the end, I think we can do that.
208 3/23/2018 11:58:00 PM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Aristocrats Military revealed in Boeotia.

No Raid possible so secret Strategos commitment, assuming you're resolving it Scott.
207 3/23/2018 6:38:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Rumors again in Boeotia!

Over to Brent.
206 3/23/2018 6:19:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Battle resolved (see details in log). There were no surprises - Sparta won the battle.

Scott up next.
205 3/23/2018 6:03:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Aristocrats commit zero strategos - this is a losing contest!
204 3/23/2018 5:58:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message I have 4 strategos left, so I will commit all of them to the battle. I did not save a new log file, so I will update my strategos next time it is my turn.

Over to Scott for strategos commitment.
203 3/23/2018 5:51:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Seems it is time for a battle!
Military issue in Boetia.

I commit 1 strategos (I do not have more).

Up to Brian to commit strategos - can be done publicly I think.
202 3/23/2018 5:44:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message Rumor revealed in Naupactus.

Michal is up next.
201 3/23/2018 5:18:00 PM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Unable to resolve the Military issue I Aetolia or the League I revealed next in Ionia because the Demagogue Strategos poole has been cleared by raiding (well done, Spartans).

Euros up next.
200 3/23/2018 3:23:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Forgot to unmask the issue - use the second log file.

Demagoge military issue in Aetolia
199 3/23/2018 3:22:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Over to Brent for issue resolution!
198 3/23/2018 10:49:00 AM Turn 1 Agiad Message My turn done quickly - Ionia, Rumor.

Now Scotts turn.
197 3/22/2018 9:53:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message Diplomatic issue in Aetolia. There was really nothing useful that could be done with it there, so it is essentially a pass.

Michal is up next.
196 3/22/2018 7:33:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Rumors in Boeotia!

Since there are no Athenian issues available, I think it's back to Brian for Eurypontids.
195 3/22/2018 7:00:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message I spent 3 strategos to convert the base in Thessalia to one of ours.

Scott is up next.
194 3/22/2018 6:04:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Issue in Thessalia - diplomatic. Brian to play Diplomatic and then Scott.
193 3/22/2018 2:45:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message I did another raid, and drew a 2-value card this time. So we are at 12 strategos total now.

Agiad is next in Honor Order, so Michal is up once again.

192 3/22/2018 1:50:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message My move done. Raid in Boetia (I draw 1-value card). As there were no Athenian issues visible, I played issue in Boetia which happen to be Brian's Military.

Back to Brian.
191 3/22/2018 1:57:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message I'll take the hits when I next have an issue to resolve
190 3/21/2018 6:39:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message I also did a raid in Boeotia, and drew a 5-value card. So the strategos raiding toll is up to 9 now.

Since there are still no Athenian issues visible, it was once again my turn to reveal an issue, and I revealed an Agiad military issue in Boeotia once again.

Over to Michal to resolve the issue.
189 3/21/2018 6:13:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message My move done. I played Military issue as Raid, gained 3 Honor and draw 4-value card (so I assume Brent will lose that amount of strategos).

As it was my turn now, I uncovered issue in Boetia, which is Brian's Military. Over to Brian to resolve.
188 3/20/2018 10:57:00 AM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message Agiad military issue revealed in Boeotia.

Over to Michal to resolve.
187 3/20/2018 10:18:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Sorry Brian.

Yes, if we have no top of queue issues exposed, you should start.
186 3/18/2018 8:33:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message So, it looks like all the issues have been placed, and we are ready to begin resolving issues.

Normally, the Demagogue faction would be up first, but there are no Athenian issues currently visible. So I guess Brent will have to pass, and the Eurypontids (i.e., me) will go next?

185 3/17/2018 11:55:00 AM Turn 1 Agiad Message I will not be original and will follow best practices of our opponent from Turn 1.

Issue to Boetia.


184 3/16/2018 2:54:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message My final issue was placed in Boeotia.

Michal is up for his final issue placement.
183 3/16/2018 12:54:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Issue in Boetia, back to Brian.
182 3/15/2018 8:51:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message Issue placed in Boeotia.

Michal is up.
181 3/15/2018 8:30:00 PM Turn 1 Demagogues Message I'm out of issues. Up to you guys to complete

180 3/15/2018 6:14:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Okay - got it - issue to Boetia.

Over to Brent.
179 3/15/2018 6:05:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Issue to Boetia. Scott now.
178 3/14/2018 4:39:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message Issue placed in Aetolia.

Scott, I think you forgot to pick up the issue that Brent gave to you at the conclusion of the Assembly phase. There is a Demagogue issue on the map on the Aristocrat side of the Athenian assembly area. So you actually have one more issue to place after Michal places his next issue.

Michal is up next.
177 3/13/2018 7:19:00 PM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Issue in Aetolia
Eurypontids up
176 3/13/2018 5:35:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Aristocrats issue to Boetia.

Over to Brent - and that's it for Aristocrat issues. We got clobbered in bole/assembly!
175 3/13/2018 2:31:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message My move done - issue to Naupactus.
Next to Scott.
174 3/12/2018 5:57:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message Issue to Thessalia.

Michal is up.
173 3/12/2018 3:38:00 PM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Issue in Naupactus.

Back to Eurypontids
172 3/12/2018 3:05:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message ...and yet another issue to Boetia!

Back to Brent
171 3/12/2018 1:11:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Issue to Boetia (our favourite theater :) )

Scott turn now.
170 3/11/2018 12:22:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message Issue to Naupactus.

Michal is up.
169 3/11/2018 7:22:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Done.

Eurypontids up
168 3/10/2018 4:01:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Aristocrats done - sorry for the slow response - I'm in the height of by tax filing season, so thank you for your patience!

Over to Brent.
167 3/10/2018 9:08:00 AM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message Scott is up next, right?
166 3/7/2018 3:56:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Ok, my move done.
Sorry for keeping you waiting!


165 3/5/2018 3:02:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message It seems to work okay for me.
164 3/5/2018 2:58:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Does dropbox work for you?
163 3/5/2018 2:46:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Hi Guys,
Just a quick update: I have just come back and starting analyzing what happened and planning my move.

So expect me being up to speed very soon.
162 3/3/2018 10:46:00 AM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message I placed my first issue.

Michal is up next when he is back from holiday.
161 2/23/2018 1:22:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Sure, no problem.
My wife usually takes winter pretty bad (not the temperature, but lack of sun) so we go to southern Israel (Ejlat) and Jordan (Petra). Should be fun:)
160 2/22/2018 4:57:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Sounds fine to me - enjoy your vacation. Care to share where you're going?
159 2/22/2018 4:47:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message I did my preparations - startegos, cards, issues.

One not here: I will be going on short, one week vacations as of Saturday; I think logically this is good moment to pause (we can discuss startegies in the meantime) and reconvene on March 5th. I wil not have access to Vassal during that time.

On the situation, well, definitely it will be interesting turn although honor disparity is slightly too high. Well, but there are ways to counter any honor advantage :) Can't wait to play the run :)
158 2/22/2018 12:47:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Thanks, Michal. In our log, those honour shifts won't have happened, so I need to do them.

Setup for theatre phase done. Log file 210. Issues all assigned....each of you just needs to mask issues, shuffle, put in your hand (however you want to do it) and the Spartans need to redraw their Strategos.

I've resolved the only political phase issue, my Citizenship....converted a base in Ionia.

Honour order is Demos-Euros-Agiad-Aristos. As I'm first in order I've gone ahead and placed my first issue in Ionia.

Interesting turn ahead. The Spartans have a serious tempo advantage with issue and Strategos dominance but some honour to catch up. Interesting to see how it plays out.
157 2/21/2018 4:39:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message That is correct, but note that we already adjusted honor points +2/-2 for the Agiad winning oratory honor. The details are in the file "231-sparta-assembly-ek.vlog".


156 2/21/2018 4:16:00 PM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Thanks. Why don't we go from the Athenian log as it looks like I'm first in honour order again? I'll update later today when I get a chance. I haven't looked through all the Spartan logs, just the end result.

Can I just confirm?:
- Agiad - 3 x Military, Oracle - 7 Oratory honour
- Eurypontid - 2 x Military, 2 x Diplomatic - 5 oratory honour

Tie break Favour of the Assembly control remains with the Agiads.

2 honour shift to the Agiads for Oratory honour

155 2/21/2018 12:34:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Brent you are completely right, I must missed something in the rules.

Our debates are finished - we are ready for next phase. Who can combine both log files?
154 2/19/2018 4:22:00 PM Turn 1 Demagogues Message No, Michael, when the Strategos in the pool are gone, you're out and there should be no trading between players. I don't recall what happened in our first assembly but we wouldn't have been trading Strategos, unless it was to correct an error.
153 2/19/2018 5:12:00 AM Turn 1 Agiad Message Hi Guys,

during our debate we encountered following dilemma:

We run out of strategos during the debates (all have been drawn from the stock). We understand we can't get any more strategos until the Strategy Board segment.

However, I think I saw in T1 when Scott and Brent were exchanging strategos between them. maybe I overlooked something or misinterpreted...

152 2/15/2018 5:53:00 PM Turn 1 Demagogues Message The Spartans are legendarily slow deliberators. Just kidding :). You were waiting ages for us last time.

I'm not suggesting you guys do this, because it's a PBEM game and we're in no rush, but the Boule and assembly do lend themselves to live play. 20 minutes and done.
151 2/15/2018 4:47:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Hi Guys,
we are still playing our debate (mainly due to me and my lack of time recently - which results in prolonged duration). We wile let you know once we are finished.

150 2/15/2018 3:17:00 PM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Athenian assembly complete and in our Turn 2 assembly folder as a single log.

I've put all the turn 1 logs in their own folder to give us some room for the coming fight :).
149 2/10/2018 8:32:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Brent, I just ran into a scheduling conflict on Monday (my time/day) - can you do the following day? I sent the update via Google Calendar.
148 2/9/2018 1:13:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message I think that will work. I believe Brent and I are scheduled for this Monday.
147 2/9/2018 1:09:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message I think we are ready.

Shall we use file 208 as master file, an use two folders to play Boule there?
146 2/8/2018 9:22:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message I noticed that there were 9 Athenian strategos tokens off to the side instead of 6. I moved three of them back to the pool. So I think we have accounted for all the strategos now.

I believe everyone has drawn their new hands. Are we ready to start the Boule segment?
145 2/8/2018 2:21:00 PM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Scott, yes, both sides should have the same number of Strategos in their pool. My hand is empty so I assumed the remaining Strategos must still be in your hand.

This is the first time I've personally encountered this problem with leaders but it's a known issue. When we play the assembly I'll have the stats on hand....I'm playing a game of the First Peloponnesian War on the table tomorrow (happy face :) so I'll record them then.
144 2/8/2018 2:07:00 PM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Aristocrats done. And I'm seeing the same issue with the leader card - what are those stats, again? Do they change? And, I'm not sure about the total Strategos count - I think the two sides are supposed to be equal, correct?

For the boule, I'm still just getting a hang of things, so I don't really have a preference either way.
143 2/8/2018 9:39:00 AM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message I'm fine with doing the Boule separately.
142 2/8/2018 4:28:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Drawn my hand and formed my Entourage.

Just the Aristocrats to go. I don't have any Stratgeos so they must both be in your hand still, Scott. You'll need to send them to the pool when you do your hand.

We're then ready for the Boule. I have to admit, I'm not a big fan of the sequential Boule play and personally think simultaneous play is the spirit in which the game was designed (although that option is given, of course). Now that we're at war I don't think it will matter as much and it would certainly be quicker to roll the Boule into the assembly for simultaneous play, if everyone agrees. I'd just suggest we ignore each others' Boule and assemblies until they're complete.
141 2/7/2018 6:35:00 PM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message I drew my hand and refilled my entourage.
140 2/7/2018 4:16:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Ok, I discarded 2 from my entourage.
Then created two decks and draw my card (had to remember I need only 8 cards as 1 is left in entourage!)

PS. Dear Athenian colleagues, please give back strategos:)
139 2/7/2018 10:03:00 AM Turn 1 Aristocrats Message Aristocrats discarded entourage as well
138 2/7/2018 8:24:00 AM Turn 1 Eurypontid Message I discarded my entourage. Ready for whoever wants to go next.
137 2/7/2018 6:44:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message No political capital for anyone from last turn.

Before creating the political decks to draw our hands, we each have to decide whether we are keeping (returning) any of our Entourage to our hands. Those that are being discarded need to be unmasked. I'll log that first. The last person to log their discards can use the auto function to create the political decks and then draw their hand.
136 2/6/2018 4:23:00 PM Turn 1 Agiad Message Redeployment and Aristophanse done. Athenians to give back two last strategos :)
135 2/6/2018 6:08:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Athenian maintenance and redeployment done

Over to Sparta for redeployment, No Will of the Assembly so after that you can go on to end the turn and draw the Aristophanes for next turn.
134 2/5/2018 5:51:00 AM Turn 1 Demagogues Message Sorry guys, work dramas and I can't log a turn until tomorrow night.
As controlling Athenian faction I'll do redeployment but I'd like to liaise with Scott about it. Won't be long. Our maintenance looks fine bu I'll cruces the numbers when we do redeployment..
