279 4/11/2019 5:35:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Message Sure, we can go for TvT4 :) You prefer starting from T1, did not find the Late War scenario to your liking? No worries. Just give me some time, as earliest i can commit to another game is Monday. I guess we switch sides, ergo going back to TvT1 lineup, right?
278 4/11/2019 5:30:00 AM Turn 9 US Message what now?
I'd prefer to play from the beginning ...
277 4/9/2019 1:10:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Give card to US #4: 3 / Duck and Cover (US)

Message from USSR:
Missile Envy card, enjoy bringing nuclear doom to the world :)
276 4/9/2019 1:09:00 AM Turn 9 USSR Message Thank you, you lost again :) Never play Missile Envy on DEFCON 2 as you can get hit with some nasty cards :)
275 4/8/2019 5:59:00 PM Turn 9 US Play Card as Event #49: 2 / Missile Envy (Both)
Exchange this card for the highest valued Operations card in your opponent's hand. If two or more cards are tied, opponent chooses. If the exchanged card contains your event, or an event applicable to both players, it occurs immediately. If it contains opponent's event, use Operations value without triggering event. Opponent must use this card for Operations during his next action round.

If you are behind on the Space Race track, play this card to move your marker two boxes forward on the Space Race Track, gaining the VP value of the second box only.

Message from USSR:
OK, f...ck it, i'll get my foot in the door there some other way. 66% chance for a token presence in Colombia to save 2VPs isn't a risk worth taking at the moment. My only wish is to have played THIS card during headline :) Then again, Middle East was in a dire need of reshaping too. Gain here, lose there, i guess...

USSR AR2: the event. Ruskies are space walking too! No VP change. Save posted, map refreshed. Go for AR2 US.
270 4/7/2019 2:05:00 PM Turn 9 USSR Message Shite, one of the worst possible cards had made it onto your hand :/ So my options now are:

a) do nothing and lose the presence, handing you easy 6VPs at minimum

b) coup Colombia in hopes of securing presence and holding on to it till the scoring, but still lose 4VPs minimum

Message from US:
266 4/6/2019 3:43:00 PM Turn 9 USSR Message Well, it's something, i guess... Though as a space race it would be as equally disappointing as it was in this coup ;) Argentina's free of US influence.

At a risk of losing Egypt (for now) i'll stand down from this influence race, as there's something odd about such a mild follow-up to the coup. As if you prefer the event from your remaining "3" card instead of the ops :P

216 3/25/2019 9:29:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Message Sh...t, you're right. Should be 3. The influence is not replaced, it's removed. You're right, please fix to 3 during your save. Sorry for that :)
215 3/25/2019 9:21:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Message Junta starts with me placing 2 influence. I put it there and then flipped the country. Card Ops was 2, with the roll it's 7, 3 over the limit. So, 2 influence from Junta plus 2 of yours flipped through the coup plus extra one over that = 5 :)
214 3/25/2019 9:18:00 AM Turn 8 US Message I don't understand Venezuela - shouldn't it stand at (0/3*)?
213 3/25/2019 8:52:00 AM Turn 8 USSR Message Save posted, map refreshed, good to go for AR1 US.

By the way, do we really need the radioactivity markers for blocked regions? I think we both have a good understanding of where one can and where one can't strike under specific DEFCON ;) For me it's just extra work, but we can keep it if it helps you in any way :)
