Message from Nixon, the Spanker:
Odd you are CP
137 1/22/2021 3:50:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Flip a coin.
136 1/22/2021 2:19:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Thought you had me that last turn. Closer then those EVs show.

You want CP or AP in PoG?
135 1/22/2021 1:02:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Close race, but Nixon is the victor.
299-238.
I flipped Michigan, but couldn't find enough other EV to win. Congratulations - that's a fun game. We'll need to come back to it at some point.

On to Paths of Glory?
134 1/21/2021 10:07:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Back to you. I had IL, TN, & NY left. TN landed, but IL fell short. NY was just a burner card.

I have my election day event that I'll use on IL. You can tack it on to the end of your file if you'd like
133 1/21/2021 12:16:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message I'm still not sure if/how the order matters, but if we go strictly by the rules, they say the player with initiative resolves his cards [plural] first. So I think you go through all four of your cards now.
It also says we reveal them before that. Mine are MI, WY, FL, and MI again. (Yes, Wyoming).
132 1/20/2021 10:53:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message I won initiative, not that it matters, and just went ahead and played my first card. I was going to just play through all (4) of mine but I'm sure there is bag weighting reasons not to do that.
131 1/20/2021 6:06:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Kennedy barnstorms the Midwest the weekend before the election, attempting to bring more rust belt union voters to the polls on Tuesday.
(You might have seen a couple of files come across on Dropbox - I changed my move and deleted the first of the two files. The correct one uses his candidate card for 5 ops).
130 1/20/2021 12:08:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Not seeing your logfile online. Is it there on your end?
129 1/19/2021 9:57:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message At the end of your next turn, go ahead and play your campaign cards. I'll knock out my last card and my campaign card draws, then pass it back to you to wrap the whole thing up.
128 1/19/2021 9:47:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Minnesota saw sense, not so much IL.
127 1/19/2021 7:03:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Just about - it's pretty crazy. I thought about using that card to make a last-minute play for California. But that was a bit too dicey.
126 1/19/2021 6:51:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Did you land a Perfect Hand?!?!?!
125 1/19/2021 6:50:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message LBJ comes to Kennedy's aid to shore up the blue wall in the South. Kennedy gets his candidate card back (I couldn't figure out where it went in Vassal, but just know that I have it again).
124 1/19/2021 1:51:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message I didn't realized you played as an event. Just add my momentum back and add your cubes
123 1/19/2021 1:49:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message I loved your comment about Illinois and Ohio. :-)

Regarding the swing state, can you use momentum to trigger an event that I had already played for an event? I had thought that could only happen if I played it for "ops" (but perhaps this game works differently from other CDGs?)

122 1/19/2021 11:41:00 AM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Texas was a swing state for the briefest of moments.

Kennedy's frustration boiled over into a painful Gaffe when he announced in his visit to Chicago that he was glad to be back in the great state of Ohio.

121 1/18/2021 10:34:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message OK - redid it in a different state.
120 1/18/2021 10:32:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Actually, need to re-do that move.
119 1/18/2021 10:31:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Headed to my home state - a perennial swing state.
118 1/18/2021 10:01:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Any advantage Nixon has in the rest back is rapidly fading
117 1/18/2021 6:32:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Fatigue was a good card to play back on me. I had been planning on using the Kennedy card this round.
Shoring up support on the east coast.
116 1/18/2021 2:53:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Ball buster of a card right there. Haven't seen a Nixon version of that. I was happy to see Trick Knee or whatever it was called come out early, hoped this would end in my hand and not yours.

Back to you. 3 of 4 is good, but hate losing cubes as well.
115 1/18/2021 12:14:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Hostile press corps doesn't like Nixon.
114 1/17/2021 2:23:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Played my two Campaigns. Over to you for Campaign Cards and first play.
113 1/17/2021 1:28:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Shoot - I didn't add your momentum either.
Playing for issues.
Back to you to wrap up the turn and draw initiative.
112 1/17/2021 12:34:00 AM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Over to you. Forgot to add my momentum.
111 1/17/2021 12:09:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Kennedy campaigns in the South.
110 1/16/2021 11:22:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Back to you. E-mailed as well.
109 1/16/2021 10:58:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Point...and counterpoint. Kennedy responds on the same issues.
Must be a problem with syncing. I was able to see the file when logging into dropbox, but it wasn't syncing to my laptop. I'll email you the logfile directly, since the syncing back to dropbox will probably be delayed.
108 1/16/2021 10:28:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Just put another copy in
107 1/16/2021 9:51:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message The most recent file showing up in my version of the folder is my move from yesterday.
106 1/16/2021 9:28:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message I had to rename it when I uploaded it a few hours ago. Had the wrong number. I'll check as soon as I get a chance, but sort by modified if you get a chance. My renaming may not have stuck.
105 1/16/2021 8:17:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Can't see the logfile on my end. Syncing delay?
104 1/16/2021 2:42:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Nixon goes for the Issues.
103 1/15/2021 7:35:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Eleanor Roosevelt helps Kennedy out in the Midwest - seems to be quite a battle up there.

Weather here isn't really that bad (it's actually beautiful out today), but we had a big windstorm come through Tuesday night and a lot of branches came off trees and took out power lines. And for whatever reason, our neighborhood was one of the last to get power restored.

"Glory" trifecta next - sounds good to me!
102 1/15/2021 3:53:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message ***Side Note***
If you're up for it, after this, would you be interested in going for the "Of Glory" Triple Crown?

Paths of Glory
Pursuit of Glory
Illusions of Glory

101 1/15/2021 2:30:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Back to you. Uploaded a fixed move.

No issues. I straight up wasn't paying attention. Sloppy play on my part.

Weather that bad up in the Northwest right now?
100 1/14/2021 11:31:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Power has been out at my house for a couple of days. (Which this time of year is kind of dark and cold). But it came back on tonight.
A couple of questions - first, are there any concerns over my play of your event last turn (removing the issues cubes)? And second, the result of that play is that no one leads in defense now, so the conditions aren't met for your Quemoy and Matsu event.
99 1/13/2021 9:41:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Are you waiting on me?
98 1/11/2021 12:39:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Spent a momentum to trigger the event on your card.
97 1/10/2021 10:46:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Why did you remove my issue cubes and campaign?
96 1/10/2021 6:42:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Really curious about your card play there, and feel like you might be leading me into a trap. But I'll bite.
Doing some campaigning in the South.
95 1/10/2021 1:29:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Back to you.
94 1/9/2021 11:20:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Glad we sorted it out.
Updated the logfile, I have initiative, so you can go first this turn.
93 1/9/2021 5:47:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Did not read far enough for the simultaneous apparently!

Put one in Michigan and one in California. Kindly just tack it on to your map!
92 1/9/2021 4:08:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Defense and Civil Rights were both played in the same round but the resolution is actually different from the order of our logfiles.

Under Lazy Shave, you show me your selected card (but don't actually play it yet) before I decide on my card.
Then, after I pick out my card, we actually play our cards simultaneously.
So what happened in our game is that I selected defense and you selected civil rights, and we played our cards simultaneously - both issues were won at the same time.

That takes us to a different rule for when 2 issues are won at the same time:
"In the event that two issues are won simultaneously, they are resolved in ascending order, with the issue in lowest original from the Issues Track being resolved first."
In our game Civil Rights was in position #2, so it gets resolved first. Defense (top position on the track) gets resolved second. Econ wasn't won that round, so it ends up getting resolved last.
That's how I come up with 2 cubes for you first, then 3+4 for me.
91 1/9/2021 8:03:00 AM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message I believe defense and civil rights were won in the same round, with defense coming first sequentially. I think it is 2 for you, 3 for me, then 4 for you. I will have to check the logs.
90 1/8/2021 11:50:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message OK, trying to sort this out, and I think we might both have had it wrong. Maybe. The rule is interesting in that it awards more cubes for the later issues won. And Lazy Shave also confuses matters, since our card plays are actually meant to be simultaneous, even though our Vassal files are sequential.

If I'm reading it right, first issue won gets 2 cubes, next gets 3, last issue gets 4.

Defense and Civil Rights issues were both completed at the same time (our third card play). Because they were simultaneous, they get resolved in ascending order. Meaning Civil Rights is resolved first (2 cubes to you). Then, Defense to me (3 cubes to me). After that, Econ to me (4 cubes).

If I have this correct, you place 2 cubes, then I place 7.
89 1/8/2021 9:32:00 AM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message You have 4, then I have 3. It is in order they were won.
88 1/8/2021 12:54:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message I placed my first two cubes (MI and OH).
Back to you for your three.
87 1/8/2021 12:36:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Whew - I got really lucky there. That was my only econ card.
86 1/7/2021 2:07:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message I have nothing to play for Economy, so you win by default. We go in ascending order as they finished, so you should receive (4) Cubes anywhere you like for Defense, I get (3), then you get (2)
85 1/7/2021 12:25:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message I hope neither of us end up with the event card "Eisenhower Encourages Supporters to Invade the Capitol"
Then we both lose.

84 1/7/2021 12:23:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Surprising after how the campaign has gone so far. But after Nixon wins the Civil Rights issue, Kennedy wins on Defense.
83 1/6/2021 9:30:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Back to you.
82 1/6/2021 1:13:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Your move. Thanks for the note about the cards. Hopefully it's fixed now.
81 1/5/2021 9:41:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Back to you. Cards aren't hidden btw.
80 1/5/2021 12:42:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Played my card. Don't forget to account for my Harvard Brain trust bonus.
79 1/4/2021 9:17:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Fixed (I hope)
78 1/4/2021 8:26:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Hmmm. Your file isn't showing up on my end.
77 1/2/2021 5:55:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Btw, I should be at Momentum 2. I was at 2, lost one, gained one
76 1/2/2021 5:52:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Back to you
75 1/2/2021 3:10:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Due to the lazy shave debate event, you reveal your card first.
74 1/2/2021 3:05:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Wrapped up the turn and drew initiative for the debate. Kennedy has initiative.
73 1/1/2021 2:41:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Over to you for for Campaign Strategy and Endorsement. I added the Momentums
72 12/31/2020 2:57:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Kennedy does as well.
Nixon gets egged, too.
71 12/30/2020 11:00:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Nixon makes one last push on the issues....
70 12/30/2020 1:29:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Northern Blacks support Kennedy.
69 12/28/2020 10:46:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Nixon goes back to issues as well.

I also fire your event
68 12/28/2020 12:34:00 AM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Kennedy goes back to the issues.
67 12/27/2020 9:05:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Preachers rally against Kennedy's Catholicism.
66 12/27/2020 1:35:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message A whistlestop campaign in the East for Kennedy.
Merry Christmas!
65 12/26/2020 10:26:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Back to you. Belated Merry Christmas
64 12/23/2020 1:00:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message I saved it. Possibly it isn't syncing for you yet. (I've noticed some delays on my end the last few weeks with the files showing up).
63 12/23/2020 12:58:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Don't forget the file!
62 12/23/2020 12:37:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Darn - I should have seen that coming.
Kennedy skewers Nixon's dangerous defense strategy in speech.
61 12/22/2020 9:31:00 AM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message I think these debates are going to be rough for Ol' Nixon. I've just re-read the rules and I've not done well planning for it.
60 12/20/2020 9:26:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Been clutching that since last turn, trying to time it right. Was nervous you would notice me clearing out the East
59 12/20/2020 7:35:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Wrapped up the turn. Chose momentum for winning an issue.
I won initiative, so you go first.
58 12/18/2020 7:15:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message You're up to end T4.
57 12/17/2020 2:54:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Back to you.
56 12/17/2020 12:20:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message "It's the economy, stupid" - a line to be picked up 30 years later.
55 12/17/2020 10:44:00 AM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Nixon focuses, again, on the issues that matter to everyday Americans. Food, Money, Housings.
54 12/17/2020 10:40:00 AM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Fire the event with a Momentum.

Lose a 2nd Momentum due to the event.

Play Experience Counts. You lose (1) from each issue. I gain (1) Momentum, ending at (1).

53 12/16/2020 10:16:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message issues
52 12/16/2020 9:49:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Nixon heads to the Northeast.
51 12/16/2020 7:11:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message High hopes last time was pretty ridiculous.

Gathering momentum in the midwest.
50 12/16/2020 5:32:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Your first turn Nixon heavy hand must be it. I'll be honest, I haven't felt the pressure that I did last game. Your High Hopes out the gate dropping 7 or 8 cubes in a single play was rough.
49 12/16/2020 2:11:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Nixon is really.... really .... really strong in Defense thanks to his Running Mate.
48 12/16/2020 12:18:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Some campaigning in the Midwest.
47 12/16/2020 12:18:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message I've had some terrible card draws this game. First turn, every one of my cards was a Nixon event. And you've been playing the issues more than me, depriving me of momentum. Which seems to be an excellent strategy.
46 12/16/2020 11:45:00 AM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message I don't have a good feel for this game. I don't feel that my play is any different then last game, however, I'm sitting at nearly double the electoral college standing at close to the same moment.
45 12/16/2020 9:08:00 AM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message I'll burn a Momentum to fire the event.

Play Prime Time Television for the Event
44 12/15/2020 5:11:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message Campaigning in the Midwest
43 12/15/2020 4:55:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message I've been having to sit on some of my bloody cards for turns trying to wait out your Momentum.
42 12/15/2020 4:37:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message Nixon continues around the South working on swaying voters.
41 12/15/2020 3:51:00 PM Turn 1 Kennedy, the Spankee Message You can take rewards for all the issues, and may swap issue places if desired.
I'll have initiative next turn, and you go first.
40 12/15/2020 12:25:00 PM Turn 1 Nixon, the Spanker Message I meant played my Campaign Card.
