[Casual] Azuset (Red) vs Hobusu (Green) take 2


#21

I am not saying that drawing 5 each turn is the meta (if you watch my own games, I will go down on cards often from turn 2, drawing 4 or even 3), but that since the amount you can draw is capped at 5 (in the discard/draw phase at least), discarding more then 3 can be view as a waste, and should have a good reason for it.


#22

Sorry I haven’t been giving you more advice, but Shadow_Night_Black keeps beating me to the punch! Out of curiosity, have you read the articles Sirlin wrote about the game during the Kickstarter? I think the thing about how many cards you draw each turn was discussed in one of them.

I could tech up this turn, but the odds of drawing something useful are low. Instead I’ll go down on cards to delay my deck cycling and load up my board. Grabbing Ferocity to combo with Tiny Basilisk and the incoming Feral Tech II units. Assuming Calamandra survives to next turn, I’m likely to max her and go for Feral Strike.


#23

I have not seen those articles. I just found about this game around 2 months ago. I will read them as I can. Thanks for the link :slight_smile:

update I read over those articles. It was much like reading the manual.


#24

I think I broke my spreadsheet. I dont think I save my tech correctly. Now I have messed up the sheet to much and can’t set it up properly.

Advice?


#25

Type in manually all the cards where you think they should be at the start of your turn, (hand, deck, discard, worker, in play, patrol, etc), put your tech choices into the discard, set your turn number to 4 (its on the right hand side near player number) set your starting gold amount manually, play out your turn normally, and it should be fine. Worst case your starting hand will look weird, and your tech choice will say 0, but functionally the sheet will be fine moving forward.

Alternately, you can use the google spreadsheet version history function. This is accessed near the file menus, (file, edit, view, etc) on the right there is a “last edited XXX”, click that.


#26

@zhavier I was able to use the history function! Thanks for pointing that out. Believe it or not I am new to google sheets.

@Hobusu here is my turn.

That was an impressive play! Just as a reminder, since you suicided Zane you won’t be able to use him on your next turn. Also, I just noticed that your Tech I building isn’t marked on your posts (there should be a box on the right-hand side of your sheet where you can mark that it has 5 HP).

I’ll admit, I didn’t see that coming. Looks like Surprise Attack lived up to its name for once! Good thing I didn’t already tech Feral Strike, then. Still, it’s unlikely that he could break through and destroy my Tech II with only a Tech I of his own and no access to Zane this turn, so I’ll be able to leverage my economic advantage with big bodies soon.


#28

@zhavier how does the spreadsheet work for adding multiple copies of a card into the deck. Will it only show up once or will it make a duplicate entry? Right now, I should have two firebats in my deck and I am only seeing one listed. Actually, the same goes for Gunpoint Taxman.


#29

You can freely mark anything into the sheet and it will assume you meant to. If you want two of something, you have to list it twice. You maybe accidentally deleted them when hitting undo? Either way, add them into the deck or discard now and it should be fine, in a casual game like this.


#30

For whatever reason, probably user error, my teched cards from T3 never made it into the deck although they printed out in the generated text and now my hand is bunk. Im just going to roll with it. “It’s not easy being green.” - Kermit D Frog

I’m spending a lot of time trying to fix the spread sheet because i’m new at it. In fact more time is going into the spreadsheet learning than learning/playing the game. My deck is fubared and im cool with that. Im not sure how I am going to recover. This has been a great learning experience.

Alright, got a setup where the only way he can kill my Tiger is either with a pair of Shoddy Gliders (since flying lets them ignore swift strike) or by using Chaos Mirror to lower its attack. Or, now that I think about it, he could have a Shoddy Glider kill Cala so the Tiger loses invisible, then target it with something nasty. If he doesn’t (or can’t) do any of those things, I can almost certainly destroy both of his Tech buildings next turn. His best option here, oddly enough, might be to go for Tech III. Since Pirate-Gang Commander lets him play Tech I and II units without their buildings, I can’t just ignore it.

I have found myself way out numbered again. I put up some cheap defences and am trying to setup a board reset with Maximum Anarchy. I hope to do a little trading this turn so Green will come out scratched up. Hopefully I can recoup my hand with the technician.

For the future, I’d suggest not including the info about the cards in your list of actions (just having it in the board summary is plenty). For a second I thought you were trying to use Firebat’s ability the turn you played it! :smile:

So, a Tower. That stops me from taking out both Tech buildings, but I can still delay his Blood Tech II shenanigans for another turn (since he apparently didn’t draw any last turn?) and set up a wall that he needs to deal with (attacking twice with a 6/7 is no joke). I’m grabbing a Surplus because my position is solid enough that I don’t really need to get more of a defense, and I’d like to get out of the card defecit hole some day… With a Young Treant guaranteed in my next hand, and a not unreasonable chance of getting a Technician draw, I could get up to two cards that are currently in the discard. I’d prefer Ferocity to come up if the Elephant lives, since that would probably result in a decisive win on the spot.

This is still a tough encounter for me. Every turn I am trying to gain the upper hand with no end in sight. My first thought was to leave the Rampaging Elephant alone. That would have paved away for the rest of the forces to do some amazing damage. I went with another surprise attack ( I really like this card) with a scorch to down the beast. This left my hand very short. I still have two defenders up. Let’s see what happens next.

@2’s turn!


#36

Zane only has 2 HP at Lv. 1. Does that change anything about your turn?


#37

No, sorry about that. I have 2/3 stuck in my head for some reason. Fixing that.


#39

Turn redone to account for the Tower. The difference between this and my original attempt at the turn is that Calamandra ended up at max level instead of Argagarg, meaning I’m down a Water Elemental, and Centaur took 1 damage.

Good for him that he was able to take out the Elephant, since I did end up getting Ferocity from the Young Treant draw. However, it cost him enough resources that he wasn’t able to do much else… At this point the death ball is building up to where he’ll be hard pressed to stop it at all, since every turn that I can play Ferocity is a turn where I kill at least one thing without my attacker getting hurt and he can’t attack back without spending resources on direct damage spells or the like (and those are affected by Cala’s resist aura). Odds are good that I get another beefy unit next turn, maybe even two, and if/when I can get Ferocity active on the same turn that I can attack with an Elephant or Bear I basically win. I am curious what he’ll finally do with his Tech II now that he can use it, though that assumes he gets past Tiny Basilisk…

Kidnapping costs 1 more gold because Calamandra was giving Resist 1 to Tiny Basilisk. I assume you want to just take that out of the 2 gold you had left over?
