241 7/4/2020 1:32:00 AM Turn 1 Todd Message That is pretty impressive. Uploaded the Scott and Todd trade file. Over to Monte.

No freebies this time around, Baron.

Everybody have a great, glorious Fourth.
240 7/3/2020 8:09:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message Talking of fireworks... check out the Sol Orbital Drop Ability

> ACTION: Spend 1 Token to place 2 infantry reinforcements on 1 planet you control


239 7/3/2020 7:17:00 PM Turn 1 Monte Message The Baron will pass on trading this turn unless the Kind Sardok give me permission to trade for free!
238 7/3/2020 7:08:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message I think everyone else (other than Hacan) will have to decide on whether they want to pay to use the Secondary.

Hacan have 6 Commodities to trade...
237 7/3/2020 4:14:00 PM Turn 1 Scott Message The Xxacha agree!
236 7/3/2020 3:53:00 PM Turn 1 Todd Message Going to use my Trade card. Scott, I would like to give you the secondary for free (replenish commodities) in exchange for a 3 for 3 trade of same.
235 7/3/2020 12:07:00 PM Turn 1 Scott Message A very happy fourth to everyone!
234 7/3/2020 12:06:00 PM Turn 1 Larry Message Thanks all. You guys have a fun 4th also. Steve, love the comment about fireworks on Mecatol.
233 7/3/2020 10:55:00 AM Turn 1 Steve Message Fireworks show on Mecatol Rex tomorrow night at 10:00 pm CST!
232 7/3/2020 9:20:00 AM Turn 1 Larry Message Figured either the Sol or Baron would be first to Mecatol. I am going to be gone over the weekend. I should be able to pop in from time to time or I will leave instructions with Kevin.
231 7/3/2020 12:47:00 AM Turn 1 Todd Message So... am I up?
230 7/2/2020 11:44:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message The Sol's have thrown down the gauntlet!

who will rise to the challenge!

Steve you can take the Guardians token (alt and click to select) and put it on your public sheet - worth 1 VP, so move your token on the track too.

That VP is permanent I believe.

We will now have an agenda phase at the end of the turn
229 7/2/2020 11:12:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message BIG MOVE!

The Federation celebrates the 4th of July by invading Macatol Rex!

File posted
228 7/2/2020 12:46:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message I think we are done with Political Secondaries, so over to Steve!
227 7/2/2020 12:24:00 AM Turn 1 Scott Message Scott/Xxacha took the secondary.

I also maxed out at 7 action cards (had to discard one). I think that's the max.
226 7/1/2020 9:18:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message Sol doesn't do Politiks.
Pass
225 7/1/2020 4:28:00 PM Turn 1 Todd Message The Sardakk will pass on the politics.
224 7/1/2020 4:16:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message I think we can do in any order...

Hacan will not take the Politics Secondary
223 7/1/2020 4:11:00 PM Turn 1 Larry Message The Jol Nar played the Politics strategy card. We drew 2 action cards, moved the Speaker token to the Jol Nar and drew two agenda cards and placed them back into the deck. I left the Politics card face up per Kevin's suggestion so everyone can read it. The secondary is one command token for two action cards. Steve would decide first unless we just want to go whenever with this secondary.

222 7/1/2020 3:19:00 PM Turn 1 Larry Message Kevin, should I go ahead and exhaust the Leadership strategy card when I do my turn?
221 7/1/2020 3:15:00 PM Turn 1 Larry Message The Jol Nar exhausted three planets to collect two Command tokens. I think everyone has done the Leadership secondary so I might be up next.
220 7/1/2020 3:06:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message looks like your Centauri planet has the wrong planet on it's exhausted side - i will get that fixed in the next version...

Larry - you are up next for an Action once you do the Leadership Secondary
219 7/1/2020 2:37:00 PM Turn 1 Monte Message The Baron has taken the secondary of leadership
218 7/1/2020 12:09:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message Monte - are you taking the Leadership Secondary?
217 7/1/2020 1:16:00 AM Turn 1 Todd Message Spend 6 for 2
216 7/1/2020 12:08:00 AM Turn 1 Steve Message All set, exhausted 2 planets for 6 .. 2 command tokens gained
215 6/30/2020 10:29:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message I will likely as well, tomorrow
214 6/30/2020 10:25:00 PM Turn 1 Larry Message I plan to do the secondary for Leadership. I probably won't be able to post a file until tomorrow afternoon.
213 6/30/2020 5:18:00 PM Turn 1 Scott Message Xxacha (Scott) took the secondary.
212 6/30/2020 4:43:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message Hacan file posted.

Secondary on Leadership is

Spend any amount of Influence to gain 1 Command Token for every 3 Influence spent.
211 6/30/2020 4:37:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message The Hacan have struck a deal with the Sol (sorry Baron)

Hacan send 2 Commodities and an Action Card to Sol for their Military Support Promissory Card.

Steve I will put the Action Card face down in your window, hopefully you can take it and flip it ok.

Doing my Leadership Primary now, then everyone can do the Secondary in any order.
210 6/30/2020 2:38:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message Everyone has 4 Generic Promissory Notes and once Faction-specific one. They have variable value... let me see if i can come up with an offer for one
209 6/30/2020 2:19:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message The Federation offers its promissory Card for the Trade Goods *and* one of your action cards!
208 6/30/2020 2:05:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message yes, any time commodities change hands they become Trade Goods
207 6/30/2020 1:52:00 PM Turn 1 Monte Message If I obtained those commodities are they considered trade goods then??
206 6/30/2020 1:52:00 PM Turn 1 Monte Message If I obtained those commodities are they considered trade goods then??
205 6/30/2020 10:35:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message Hacan will be playing Leadership...

before i do that, i have 2 Commodoties i am keen to part ways with.

Does anyone want to offer me an Action Card (Hacan only can trade Action Cards) or a Promissory Card for 2 Commodities?

I think the best way to handle Action Card trades is for the person holding the card to email the other with the Action Card details. Basically the same as showing the person the card if we were playing FTF. I dont think the Action Card details should be public knowledge. Seem reasonable? Shouldnt be too many of them as they can only involve the Hacan.
204 6/30/2020 10:21:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message I putting version 2.03 of the module in the dropbox.

Fixes for
- Tech cards Exhaust feature
- Agenda cards refshuffle issue

please use this version going forwards
203 6/30/2020 10:20:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message Player order for T3 Action Phase will be

K, L, St, T, M, Sc
202 6/30/2020 10:20:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Change Player 0 player Player 0 player changed from Kevin Graves to Kevin Graves
201 6/30/2020 10:20:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Change Player 0 player Player 0 player changed from Kevin Graves to Kevin Graves
200 6/30/2020 7:08:00 AM Turn 1 Monte Message The Baron chose Warfare. Need the extra token!
199 6/30/2020 1:56:00 AM Turn 1 Todd Message Sardakk took trade. Over to Monte
198 6/29/2020 10:57:00 PM Turn 1 Scott Message oh - sorry - should have stated that

197 6/29/2020 10:52:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message Xxcha took Tech in case anyone was wondering
196 6/29/2020 10:47:00 PM Turn 1 Scott Message Scott (Xxacha) done - I believe Todd is next.
195 6/29/2020 10:05:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message Scott up next then
194 6/29/2020 9:22:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message I picked Construction .. file dropped
193 6/29/2020 12:38:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message Steve up next for Strategy Card pick
192 6/29/2020 12:37:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message ah yes thanks Larry. The end of turn reset will reset tech cards that have been Activated - next time i release a minor version i'll get the Exhaust ability for tech cards fixed and it'll be in the next full version.
191 6/29/2020 12:33:00 PM Turn 1 Larry Message After much agonizing the Jol Nar chose the Political Strategy Card. Kevin, I also activated my Transit Diodes card.
190 6/29/2020 10:44:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message Sorry, Hacan chose Leadership :-)
189 6/29/2020 10:42:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message Hacan chose Strategy

Over to Larry
188 6/29/2020 10:24:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message I flipped the new objective

Have 1 or more of your ships in 2 systems that are adjacent to Mecatol Rex.

This one should be interesting!

ok on to T2

Strategy Round first. Hacan is the Speaker, then clockwise so K, L, St, Sc, T, M for Strategy Card picks.
187 6/29/2020 12:14:00 AM Turn 1 Todd Message Took 2 cards and 2 tokens as well. On to a new turn
186 6/28/2020 9:49:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message All set, took 2 action cards (Sol can do that) and 2 tokens
185 6/28/2020 5:30:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message Will do tonight!
184 6/28/2020 2:54:00 PM Turn 1 Monte Message The Baron is done, took my tokens, and an action card
183 6/28/2020 1:25:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message yep Monte up then Steve and Todd
182 6/28/2020 1:20:00 PM Turn 1 Scott Message Xxacha/Scott done.

I pulled two action cards (Neural Motivator). I have less than 7 action cards, so I'm still good there.

Scored Corner the Market as well.

Just two command tokens for me...uggh...

I think that's it - Kevin, I believe you already went, so over to Monte.



181 6/28/2020 10:39:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message Scott up next
180 6/27/2020 11:40:00 AM Turn 1 Larry Message Jol Nar done with Status Phase. Claimed the Corner the Market objective. Drew two action cards due to race ability. Drew three command tokens due to hyper metabolism. Scott next.
179 6/26/2020 3:20:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message I made a mistake in going first, it should be the same initiative order as we have been using, but no big deal. For some reason i had it in my head that it would go in clockwise order from the new speaker.

Hacan score an objective!

ok, so Larry up next for

- Score 1 public and 1 secret objective
- Draw Action cards
- Draw Command Tokens

Then Sc, M, St, T.
178 6/26/2020 3:13:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message As we discussed last time, let's combine these phases of the Status Phase to speed things up

- Score Objectives
- Draw Action Cards
- Gain Command Tokens

I will cleanup Command Tokens and Ready Planets etc before we do these steps, and the last person can flip the next objective card after their 3 steps.



177 6/26/2020 3:03:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message Todd has no Strategy Tokens left so can't do the Warfare Secondary.

How un-warlike of the Saardak. Heads will roll presumably...

With that, and Steve passing, the turn is over. On to cleanup
176 6/26/2020 2:05:00 PM Turn 1 Larry Message Kevin, I think the infantry tokens are fine. Just took my pea brain a little while to see the difference. The tech upgrades are quite a bit different than the old game.
175 6/26/2020 11:50:00 AM Turn 1 Steve Message Then Sol passes after that
174 6/26/2020 11:40:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message Just need Secondary from Todd the Black...
173 6/26/2020 10:17:00 AM Turn 1 Scott Message Kevin - thanks for the answer. I see that now. Makes sense.
172 6/26/2020 10:16:00 AM Turn 1 Scott Message I mean, those aren't the required tech levels to build, correct? I just got looking at them and maybe thinking too hard. I don't recall that in TI3, but maybe I'm wrong.

Are those the required techs in order to build? Wasn't sure.

I went ahead and did the Warfare secondary. Produced the flagship and a cruiser.

171 6/26/2020 10:07:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message and Todd's Warfare Secondary too
170 6/26/2020 9:54:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message i will look to make them easier to differentiate Larry - thanks for the feedback.

I think we just need the Warfare Secondary decision from Scott then it's back to Steve if he has anything else to do.
169 6/26/2020 8:59:00 AM Turn 1 Larry Message The Jol Nar used the Warfare secondary option to build infantry in their home system. The infantry tokens are a little tricky because the 1's and 3's look similar. Not much left to do this turn.
168 6/25/2020 10:56:00 PM Turn 1 Scott Message Question: the various technology symbols to the right of each unit card on the faction matt - that is the maximum amount/type of upgrades that you can apply to that particular unit type, correct? I think so, but I can't find a specific reference to that.

Sorry if it's low-hanging fruit...can't seem to find it.
167 6/25/2020 10:22:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message Hacan took the Warfare Secondary
166 6/25/2020 10:16:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message yep

Spend 1 Token from your Strategy Pool to use the
PRODUCTION ability of 1 of your Space Docks in
your Home system.

I think we can do this in any order unless someone feels
the need to wait to see what others before them in the
order would be (Sc, T, M, K, L)
165 6/25/2020 9:37:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message Played my Strategy Card .. do others now get the chance on the secondary?
164 6/25/2020 9:08:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message Produced on Jord, file dropped
I have not used my Warfare Strategy card yet
163 6/25/2020 5:08:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message Roger that
162 6/25/2020 10:57:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message sounds interesting!

Yep Warfare unplayed

Hacan pass too

So over to Steve as Monte has passed


161 6/25/2020 10:54:00 AM Turn 1 Scott Message Sorry about that, gents. Was traveling the around the past couple days. Back in the office now.

I believe the Warfare hasn't been played, yet, correct? I'll pass on any tactical/component actions.

On a side note, I went to visit a Revolutionary War site in South Carolina the other day - "Star Fort" - pretty cool to walk through some of that history. We don't get that out west...
160 6/25/2020 10:29:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message Scott - just making sure you know you are up as there were a few messages floating around. I know you had some difficulty while on the road so no worries if still the case
159 6/23/2020 11:22:00 AM Turn 1 Larry Message If you think I can play the card and Pass, that's what I will do. That way we won't have to redo anything. Can someone mark my strategy card as pass or should I do a separate file?
158 6/23/2020 11:15:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message COMPONENT ACTIONS
A component action is an action that is printed on a game
component. Many action cards, faction sheets, and even some
technology cards have component actions. Each of these effects
is preceded by the word “Action.”

Since the Transit Diodes does not have the keyword Action, you cannot use it as a Component action but instead must use it in addition to a regular action (Tact/Comp/Pass/Strat).

do you have another action, or ready to Pass? I see no reason you cannot use it at the start of a turn in which you Pass, but your turn is skipped after passing.
157 6/23/2020 11:01:00 AM Turn 1 Larry Message Are we comfortable with the way I interpreted the Transit Diodes? While I was mowing I thought I might have misread the card but it does indicate at the start of an action PHASE.
156 6/23/2020 9:49:00 AM Turn 1 Kevin Message Larry - thanks for pointing out. I added to my todo list and will fix.

Over to Scott then
155 6/23/2020 9:46:00 AM Turn 1 Larry Message The Jol Nar did a component action to exhaust the Transit Diodes card. We moved some infantry around. I hope this is a legal play in other words, I looked through the rules and I think I can exhaust that card for my only action. Kevin, when I "exhausted" the card, it disappeared so I panicked and just made it inactive for now. I think Scott is next.
154 6/23/2020 1:09:00 AM Turn 1 Todd Message The Sardakk will pass.
153 6/22/2020 8:28:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message Sol's tactical move posted
Todd up next?
152 6/22/2020 2:42:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message Monte passes. Over to Steve of Sol
151 6/22/2020 9:28:00 AM Turn 1 Scott Message Sorry for the delay, guys. Still in Georgia and don't have full access to everything.

Xxacha pass on the Political secondary.
150 6/22/2020 12:03:00 AM Turn 1 Todd Message So where are we at here? Is Monte up? Does Scott need to post a file? The world wonders. That last sentence has some World War II trivia behind it.
149 6/20/2020 3:01:00 PM Turn 1 Larry Message The Jol Nar will pass on the Political Secondary. Command tokens too valuable.
148 6/20/2020 2:45:00 PM Turn 1 Todd Message The Sardakk took the secondary and will refuse the offer from the cutthroat galaxy traders.
147 6/20/2020 2:44:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message Sounds good
146 6/20/2020 2:24:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message Steve - if Todd does not want the 2 Commodities for his Political Secret Promissary, I will offer you the same deal...
145 6/20/2020 2:22:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message Sol declines the Political secondary
144 6/20/2020 2:22:00 PM Turn 1 Kevin Message They are new to TI4 so I dont have a great deal of experience with the Promissary Cards

but glad you asked.

they are tradeable items, like Commodities and Trade Goods.

So for example i could offer you my remaining 2 commodities for your Political Secret Card. Then i keep that until i use it, then return it.

I will go ahead and make that offer then!
143 6/20/2020 2:21:00 PM Turn 1 Steve Message Kevin , I would like to gain some trade goods, any deal we can make? Sol.
142 6/20/2020 2:15:00 PM Turn 1 Scott Message Xxacha will take the offer.

I'll need to log in later/tomorrow morning to check if I'll take the secondary.

Question on the various trade cards in our public windows: how do those work? When do we offer those?
